Borderlands 3 will be getting two major content update soon. It was revealed during an episode of The Borderlands Show that Takedown at the Guardian Breach and campaign add-on Bounty of Blood: A Fistful of Redemption will be coming to the game.
A New Takedown to…. takedown.
The latest Takedown at the Guardian Breach will be the new endgame gauntlet designer to test players skill and gear. It will be a free addition to the base game when it is released on the 4th of June 2020. Like the Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite, it will scale depending on the number of players but it is designed to push a full party of high levelled Vault Hunters to the limit.
Players will be tasked with a reconnaissance mission to the planet Minos Prime to locate the source of a mysterious Guardian signal. Players will face a sect of rogue Guardians who have irrevocably transformed Minos Prime when they arrive. Players who survive the ordeal will be rewarded with new items, including themed weapons, gear, and collectables cosmetics.
A Fist Full of New Content
Gearbox creative director Matt Cox revealed Borderland’s 3 third campaign add-on, Bounty of Blood: A Fistful of Redemption that will arrive on the 25th of June 2020. Like the previous two campaign add-ons – Moxxi’s Heist of The Handsome Jackpot and Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock – Bounty of Blood features an all-new setting, only here players will interact with an entirely new cast of characters as an unseen narrator commentates your adventure.
Players will travel to the harsh desert planet of Gehenna to claim a bounty on The Devil Riders, a vicious gang of bandits that’s been terrorizing the small town of Vestige. Along the way, players will run into fresh faces like Rose, a warrior who’s adept with pistol and katana alike, and Juno, a rough-and-tumble brawler with a checkered past. Any actions will have a direct impact on Vestige and its denizens, as you help build the town back up through story missions and Crew Challenges alike.
Bounty of Blood also features several gameplay additions, like the customizable JetBeast hoverbike that’ll help players traverse the open plains quickly and can be outfitted with artillery like dual machine guns and mortar weapons. There will also be four brand new interactive objects that will aid you in combat and exploration. The Traitorweed, for example, can temporarily turn enemies into allies when shot, while the Breezebloom can boost a Vault Hunter to great heights so you can reach otherwise-out-of-reach areas. And of course, there will be loads of new loot to chase after, including plenty of Western-themed weaponry.
Last but not least, Matt Cox also shared a piece of concept art for the fourth campaign add-on.
Takedown at the Guardian Breach and Bounty of Blood: A Fistful of Redemption will be released for Borderland 3 on the 4th of June and 25th of June respectively.
