The folks at Gearbox and 2K games are partnering up to bring a new rewards system to players in anticipation for the September 13 release of Borderlands 3. The Borderlands 3 VIP program is a reward system that gives out free rewards to players for watching trailers, reading articles, and other activities that are related to Borderlands. In exchange for your service, you’ll be given unique in-game items and other prizes. This all sounds great! So, how do you join the Borderlands 3 Vault Insider Program? Read on to find out.
How to join the Borderlands 3 Vault Insider Program
You can signup for the Borderlands 3 VIP program on the game’s website using this link. To sign up, you’ll need to make a SHiFT account which will only take a couple of seconds. Once you have done that, you’re ready to go and can start earning points right away. The process is super simple and aims to reward you for things that you’d likely already be doing. The program is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players.
How to earn Borderlands 3 VIP points
Earning VIP points is really easy! Once you’ve created an account and logged in, you see options for different things that you can do to earn VIP points. For example, watching the Borderlands 3 announce trailer will earn you 250 points. Reading about Borderlands 3 will earn you 100 points, and so on. You can see a couple of different ways that you can earn points in the picture above.
While there are only limited ways to earn points right now, more ways will be announced in the future, and some will even be hidden objectives. Linking your social media account is one super easy way to earn points. Since you’ll likely already be checking social media, now, anytime you scroll by something on the Borderlands page (or their related partners) you’ll have the opportunity to earn points. Referring friends and linking your Twitch account is another great way to earn points. When new ways to earn VIP points become available, they will appear on your account on the Borderlands website, so you’ll need to make sure you’re checking back in every once in a while.
Borderlands 3 VIP points and rewards
While some rewards haven’t been revealed yet, you’ll be able to earn wallpapers, Gold Keys, in-game items, and even some out-of-game items. As we mentioned earlier, a lot of the rewards haven’t been revealed yet, so we will have to wait for more to be revealed once the game is released in the coming months.
With that said, as soon as you sign up, you’ll be given a Welcome Pack that includes several special rewards, including a high-rarity grenade, a variety of shield mods, plus a VIP weapon trinket which will show up in your game once it releases. Even better, if you’ve already preordered Borderlands 3, you can claim an Early Adopter pack that includes a Children of the Vault weapon, an Echo Device skin, and five Gold keys that will open chests in Borderlands 3.
