Naturally, with Halloween right around the corner, we’ll be starting to get our Halloween-themed events happening in video games. Publisher 2K Games and developer Gearbox Software have shared the first details, footage, and screenshots of one such event in Borderlands 3 entitled “Bloody Harvest.” The free event will launch in October and run for a limited time. It will include new, appropriately-themed Legendary weapons, character skins, enemy types, environments, and “at least one seriously spooky boss battle.”

Bloody Harvest is “the first of many free updates and events” to come. But you will have to meet certain conditions before you can gain entry to the Bloody Harvest map.

As detailed on the Borderlands website, “For the duration of the event, any Vault Hunters who have departed Pandora for the first time and started exploring the far reaches of space aboard Sanctuary III will start to encounter Haunted enemies around the galaxy. These Haunted enemies are your key to accessing a new event-specific map, but watch out—the Ghosts that rise from the bodies of slain Haunted enemies will do their best to scare you to death. Coming into contact with one of these aggressive apparitions will induce the new Terror debuff, which partially shrouds your vision in a mysterious mist and weakens your gun handling, accuracy, and spread.”

“Once you’ve earned entry into the Bloody Harvest map, beware: dreadful dangers abound at every turn. Look to the shadowy sky and you’ll see winged Rakk-O’-Lanterns soaring through the air, eager to swoop down and breathe fire in your face. Tread lightly through a ghastly graveyard crawling with Maliwan goons who’ve reserved a burial plot just for you. Resist the urge to retch as you fight through a Ratch-infested pit with rivers of blood running through it.”

“Should you survive these blood-curdling battles, you’ll come face to skull with the Baron of Bloody Harvest himself. If you’ve been braving the many planets of Borderlands 3‘s story campaign, you might remember facing off against Captain Traunt, a gigantic Maliwan heavy soldier with some killer elemental attacks. He’s back, albeit a bit bonier, as Captain Haunt, complete with some spooky new powers. Any who dare to enter the domain of this monstrous, bone-headed boss should be ready for one hell of a fight.”

Gearbox teased a bit of the event in the first episode of The Borderlands Show, which you can view below. Borderlands 3 is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
