First Borderlands 3 expansion Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot out December

Gearbox has revealed the first campaign add-on for Borderlands 3, featuring Mad Moxxi and a space casino designed by Handsome Jack.

The first major campaign add-on for Borderlands 3 is called Moxxi’s Heist Of The Handsome Jackpot and it’ll be out on 19 December.

Whatever else you say about them, the Borderlands games have always been known for their imaginative and generously large DLC packs.

This new one will involve taking control of a derelict casino space station built by Borderlands 2 bad guy Handsome Jack.

That seems to mean a mixture of retro enemies and brand-new ones, as well new Legendary weapons and gear, cosmetic items, side missions, and crew challenges.

The new campaign is meant for characters that are at least level 13, although if you’re much higher than that it’ll scale up to provide a proper challenge and better loot.

This will be just the first of four planned DLC packs for Borderlands 3 and is included in the season pass and the Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe Edition.

There’s plenty of free content as well though, with the next patch including Takedown At The Maliwan Blacksite (a new raid) and Mayhem 4 (a variation of Mayhem Mode that removes all penalties and has just two random modifiers), alongside other tweaks like an increase in the maximum bank space.

And finally, Gearbox has announced plans for Mayhem 2.0, which while revamp Mayhem Mode with more modifiers and rewards. Although that sounds like it’s a way off, as more information isn’t due until next year.

If you’re still on the fence about Borderlands 3 itself then it’s free-to-play for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 between Thursday, 21 November and Sunday, 24 November.
