Speaking of events, the update also came with permanent seasonal events. Everyone will be able to play Bloody Harvest, Broken Heart Day Y Revenge of the Mafias when they want and how much they want. A new option in the main menu of Borderlands 3, will let you activate or deactivate any of the 3 events, and each one comes with its own set of themed rewards.
