Borderlands 3 February Update Patch Notes

Borderlands 3 announces Broken Hearts Day

As part of the ongoing Broken Hearts events in Borderlands 3, developer Gearbox has also published a pretty major patch this week. The Borderlands 3 February Update will add a handful of new content, but will also address a massive bunch of bugs and issues. The build of the game also includes a bunch of gameplay tweaks, so let’s dive in.

For new gameplay options, there are a few new things here. The Borderlands 3 February Update adds True Takedown Mode to the Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite. This new gameplay mode replaces the original Takedown mode, but there’s a way to go back. The patch also allows players to take on special enemies with battle difficulty scaled for up to 4 players in unique boss battles. This update also increases the level cap from 50 to 53, making for more build potential.

And yes, there is a small mountain of bug fixes and minor changes as well. The Borderlands 3 February Update dealt with some memory leak issues in some areas. And the developer even worked in some specific adjustments to deal with performance issues in certain areas. The patch also includes multiple fixes for multiple reported memory crashes and general crash problems. And if you feel like saving time, now anyone can skip all cutscenes in the game.

Check out the full patch notes down below.
