If you’re ready for an all-new heist, Borderlands 3‘s first campaign DLC has been announced. Titled Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, the DLC sees you flying off to a Handsome Jack-themed casino for, what else, loot.
The plot is pretty simple. At one point Moxxi had plans to build a giant space casino. However, Handsome Jack does what he always does and he stole the plans right from her. So in Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, she tasks you with going to said casino, wrecking all the Handsome Jack that you see, and making Moxxi feel just a little bit better about the whole ordeal. Along the way, you’ll have some fun shooting up robots and Claptraps.
As for gameplay, it looks like more of exactly what made Borderlands 3 so wanted in the first place. You have guns, you have friends, and you have loot. Characters can be seen shooting slot machines that turn into robots, or weird broken zombie-like versions of Claptrap that crawls out of holes to attack them. There’s also some interesting stuff shown off like new emotes. If you’ve ever wanted a super high-intensity trip through a bizarre space version of the tunnel of love, that’s here too. Just maybe don’t take any of the slot machine robots with you. Now the only question is how many microtransaction jokes will the characters make?
Borderlands 3 is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with a Google Stadia version on the way. Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot will be available on December 19th, 2019.
