Publishers 2K Games and developers Gearbox have released 13 minutes of no-spoiler gameplay from the upcoming Borderlands 3 DLC, Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot. This DLC is the first of five major DLC packs planned for Borderlands 3 and follows Moxxi tasking you with enacting an extra bit of kicking on Handsome Jack by taking over a derelict space station.
The DLC is aimed at players that are level 13 or above, but the game will scale your character appropriately. Players will also have to reach Sanctuary 3/Episode 5 to unlock the area. The DLC promises new enemies, and larger than life bosses.
You can view the gameplay video below:
The video shows Handsome Jack’s casino, full of glam, gold, and ego. The residents of the space station have been badly affected by having to stare at Handsome Jack’s famous face for so long. And fans of Borderlands 2 will no doubt be happy to see the return of loaders.
Gearbox Recently treated Borderlands 3 players with Takedown at Maliwan’s Blacksite, a free expansion that works a little like a raid; with new enemies and three new bosses. It only lasts around an hour but proves a challenge it’s tuned for a team of 4 maxed out players. And just before that DLC landed, Gearbox also ran the Bloody Harvest event last week, a Halloween inspired an event that put unique skins on characters, changed the way areas looked, added new enemies and loot.
A hotfix was also released today, covering a few of the frequent complaints from the community, such as loot dropping into unreachable areas in the Slaughterstar 3000. And Gearbox promises that with the DLC will come some extra fixes for issues with the game.
Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot is due out on December 19th, 2019. You can read our Borderlands 3 review here.
