Borderlands 3 First Campaign DLC Arrives In December
After the most recent Halloween event, Borderlands 3 is continuing their rollout of new content. This time, the Season Pass holders will be getting their first DLC treat, with their first new campaign content. “Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot” is arriving in mid-December, and it looks like a dazzling time for fans of Moxxi and Handsome Jack.
A trailer above was just put out for this expansion, which shows some of the looting and threats you’ll come in contact with. The trailer also goes into the background of the casino. Apparently, Handsome Jack stole Moxxi’s plans to create this elaborate and flashy casino. As you can imagine, she wants revenge.
Players will need to have advanced far enough in Borderlands 3’s main story that they have access to Sanctuary 3. The expansion will take them to the late Handsome Jack’s lavish resort, where they’ll battle it out against Hyperion security and “crazed casino-goers” to get to the jackpot, which includes “all-new Legendary loot” and a safe crammed full of Eridium.
As you can see, Handsom Jack is back in holographic form. You’ll be assisted by Moxxi in an attempt to take the antagonist’s casino back and place it in the right hands. There’ll be new areas, more enemies to do battle with, and obviously, a lot of new loot to find.
Moxxi’s assembling a crew to plunder a derelict space station casino and you’ve proven yourself worthy of joining her ragtag team of “experts.” Successfully battle your way through Hyperion security forces and crazed casino-goers to reach a safe loaded with Eridium, cash, and all-new Legendary loot!
If you’ve picked up the DLC and have made it onto the Sanctuary 3 ship in your save file, then you’re set to make the trip to the Handsome Jackpot. Pitchford shared that the area will scale with your level. If you want it to be “endgame,” it’ll give you the challenge. Want to give it a try because you’re that eager to use your paid content? You can jump right in early on, too.
While they admitted it’ll be about seven hours of content, they didn’t reveal too much for now. However, it seems like pretty relatively straightforward content. They’ve hinted at new characters and more new lore, too, so hopefully long-time fans get something they wanted.
Enemies and loot will scale to the player’s level, Gearbox Software said on the expansion’s official page. The loot will include new heads, skins and emotes for Vault Hunters, an ECHO Device skin, weapon trinkets, and plenty of Legendary guns and gear.
Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot is part of the Borderlands 3’s $49.99 season pass for premium DLC, with three more campaign add ons coming over the next year. This content is also included with the $99.99 Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe edition. À la carte prices for the expansion were not shared.
Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot goes live on December 19. You’ll need to have unlocked Sanctuary 3 and be finished with the prologue to have access to this first DLC pack.
