Borderlands 3 added a limited-time special event, Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite, towards the end of 2019, but part of the event was delayed. In late December, Gearbox announced that a new version of the event that would scale depending on how many players you had in your party would release, making it easier for players who preferred to play alone to tackle it. This ended up being delayed, but a date for the scaled version of the event has now been set.

In a new post on the Borderlands website, it’s been announced that the scaled version of Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite will be available from January 16 to January 30. It’ll be slightly easier now for players who are taking it on alone, meaning that if you can’t quite crack it right now, it’s worth trying during this period.

After January 30, the event will revert to its standard difficulty level, and will once again be tuned for four experienced vault hunters working together–which means that you’ll need to be extremely skilled to beat it alone.

Borderlands 3 also received its first piece of major DLC in late December, Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot. The game received an 8/10 in our review, and Jordan Ramée wrote that the game “best excels at continuing what the series has always done: deliver a humorous tall tale of misfits looting and shooting their way to heroism.”
