Ever felt guilty about playing video games when the world shattered around you? Yes, you are lucky, because Border 3 now includes special mini-games that allow you to contribute to real-world scientific research while earning in-game rewards.

Border Sciences can be found at Sanctuary III Hospital, the spacecraft that acts as the game hub area, after downloading the latest one Border 3 update. When you first activate the arcade cabinet, you will see a brief introduction by the neuroscientist (and Big Bang theory actor) Mayim Bialik about the potential benefits of real-world mini-games.

Even though it might look like a standard puzzle game, Border Sciences actually contribute to scientific research. Just completing levels in a mini-game will help you fix millions of small computer errors that arise when scientists try to map human intestinal microbiome. This will lead to a better understanding of the human body, which in turn benefits research into conditions such as obesity, diabetes, and even depression.

Not interested in helping humanity? Border Sciences have something for you too. Completing the level will give you a new head and skin for your Vault Hunter, as well as special coins that can buy limited time fans such as enhanced experience, better booty drops, increased damage, and more.

It is unclear whether this will be a permanent fixture on Border 3 move forward, or if the mini-game has a shelf life. You can find more information about this research Border Sciences developed to support by visiting Microsetta Initiative.
