2K and Gearbox have today unveiled Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition and a first look at fast-paced roguelike mode, Arms Race, all set to release as part of the upcoming Season 2 Pass 'Designer's Cut' DLC this November. In Arms Race, you'll be shorn of your gear and cast into a new zone where you'll have to gather loot "or die trying".

In Arms Race, Borderlands 2 Vault Hunters Axton and Salvador will serve as ECHOcast commentators, as you brave the galaxy's "premier reality murder show". Set within a decommissioned DAHL military base known as 'Stormblind Complex', situated on a wintry island in a far flung corner of the stars, Skill Trees will also be disabled in Arms Race, nullifying Action Skills and passive abilities, so all players are on an even footing.

Contending with the Stormblind Complex's deadly 'Murdercane' (a murderous hurricane), gunplay is at the core of Arms Race, and you'll only be able to resurrect fallen co-op allies at designated respawn points. If your whole party falls, the run ends and all loot you've scooped is permanently lost. To get out with your loot intact, you'll have to defeat 'Heavyweight Harker', the Stormblind Complex's final boss.

Arms Race will be available alongside new Vault Hunter Skill Trees (which you can read all about here and here) in the Designer's Cut DLC from 10th November. This is included with Season Pass 2, which also features access to The Director's Cut add-on, due to drop in spring 2021. Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition will also be coming on 10th November with all content released for the game to date, as well as Season Pass 2 and bonus cosmetic packs.

These bonus cosmetics include a new set of four 'Multiverse Final Form' outfits for each Vault Hunter, which imagine how Borderlands 3's motley crew might have looked in an alternate universe. These comprise a body model and matching head that can be mixed and matched with other cosmetic pieces, and paired with skins. These will be bundled with the console-only Borderlands 3 Next-Level Edition, too.

They'll also be available to Season Pass 1 or 2 owners, and anyone who purchased the Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe Edition. Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition, Next-Level Edition, and the Designer's Cut DLC are all due to release alongside free next-gen upgrades for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 on 10th November.
