Borderlands 3’s first DLC, Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, will finally be coming out soon. The DLC will release for all platforms on December 19 and it offers plenty of new content. There’s new Legendary gear, a bunch of new bosses, and even an entirely new zone.
The story follows our titular vault hunters as they, of course, hunt for more loot. And as is the core loop of Borderlands 3, the point is smashing all the enemies nearby and stealing all the loot you can carry. So what is this new area we’re going into? Well, a Handsome Jack gambling den filled with murderous robots, to put it simply.
The Handsome Jackpot is a previously lost-to-time space station, filled with glitz and insanity. Because as the name implies, it’s one of many crazy ventures Handsome Jack kicked off in his time at the head of Hyperion. And since it’s a lost and dilapidated space station, it’s choked with nothing but a bunch of insane Hyperion Loader Bots. You’re sent into this crazy environment to find some suspected caches of hidden loot at the behest of Moxxi.
The story setup leads into new side quests and Crew Challenges, each offering their own unique rewards for completion. Glimmering gear and Legendary weapons are the big draw here, but there’s so much more. The Vault Hunter heads and skins add in a nice cosmetic element as well. There’s even a few weapon trinkets, an ECHO Device skin, and new emotes to grab too.
Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot will release on December 19 for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation. Watch the trailer below.
