Borderlands 3's seasonal event, Bloody Harvest, has returned. 

It has been announced that starting today, Borderlands 3 players will be able to experience the game's seasonal Halloween event, Bloody Harvest. The event will last until November 5th. 

To take part in Bloody Harvest, players have to seek out Maurice on the Sanctuary III. He will give you a mission to collect Hecktoplasm from the ghosts that spawn when you kill haunted enemies. You will be able to tell when an enemy is haunted by a green glow. These enemies can be found all over the galaxy. While gamers will only need the base game to participate in the event, haunted enemies will also spawn in DLC locations. Killing a haunted enemy will spawn specters, which have to be killed in order to obtain their Hecktoplasm. 

Once players have collected enough Hecktoplasm, Maurice will open the portal to Heck, the home of Captain Haunt. Players will be able to find challenges to complete in Heck, which will unlock new Bloody Harvest items when completed. Loot collected in Heck will be scaled to player level, and may include powerful "Terror" anointments. Gamers can also unlock cosmetics by completing challenges. These cosmetics include a weapon trinket, ECHO Device skin, a shared Vault Hunter skin, and a weapon skin. 

As with all other seasonal events, players have the option to opt out of the Bloody Harvest through the Main Menu. 

Last month it was revealed that Borderlands 3 was coming to next-gen consoles, and will feature a free upgrade for those who own the game on current-gen systems. All save data, cosmetics, and DLC will transfer over to the new systems. The enhanced version of the game will run at 4K and 60fps in the single-player mode. An upcoming update will add four-player split-screen local co-op. It will also allow those who are playing in traditional two-player local co-op to choose between a horizontal or vertical split-screen. 

Borderlands 3 is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game will come to next-gen consoles.
