Gearbox and 2K have announced a new Borderlands 3 event during The Community Love Letter: Broken Hearts Day. This event will go live later this month.

The new Borderlands 3 event is devoted to Valentine’s Day and, according to Valve, is perfect for heart pain. With Broken Hearts Day, various enemies have hearts flying around their heads. When the player breaks the hearts, different rewards come out. A broken heart can strengthen the party, the enemy can stand on the player’s side or the heart simply explodes in a pile of loot. The more broken hearts, the more rewards.

A total of five rewards are available during the event, including special skins and legendary weapons.

The event is going live at the same time as the release of the new patch later this month and is free for all Borderlands 3 players. The event lasts exactly one week. It is possible to turn off the event in the game menu. In addition to the news about this new event, Gearbox also announces that the maximum level in Borderlands 3 is going up with the first level cap increase. From the moment the Broken Hearts Day event goes online, the maximum Vault Hunter level is increased by three levels to 53. This gives the player three extra skill points.

In addition, Gearbox and 2K today announced additional details about the following additions to the game: True Vault Hunter Mode, Skippable Cutscenes, Guardian Rank Toggling, Event Toggling, Fight for Your Life Improvements, Mayhem 2.0, Twitch ECHOcast Extension Additions.
