During the Borderlands Show broadcast, Borderlands 3 DLC director Matt Cox announced the third major DLC for the game. Titled Bounty of Blood: A Fistful of Redemption,  the DLC is a fittingly western-themed experience where players will take on an outlaw gang called the Devil Riders. There’s a new planet, a new set of characters and tonnes of new western-inspired loot. The paid DLC for Borderlands 3 will release on June 25.

You’ll travel to the harsh desert planet of Gehenna to claim a bounty on The Devil Riders, a vicious gang of bandits mounted atop fearsome beasts. The Devil Riders have been terrorizing the small town of Vestige, and you’ll have to team up with the locals if you want any hope of administering some frontier justice. Along the way, you’ll 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. Your 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. As you do your part to restore order to Gehenna, the narrator will chime in to provide commentary on the action, or just give a bit of insight into some characters’ innermost thoughts.

Bounty of Blood will also boast a bevy of new game mechanics to complement its story, like the customizable Jetbeast hoverbike that’ll help you traverse the open plains of Gehenna in a hurry. “Every Western needs its horse,” says Matt. “For the Vault Hunter, it’s the Jetbeast, which is half jetbike, and half creature,” and can be outfitted with artillery like dual machine guns or mortar weapons. There’s also a slew of interactable objects found only on Gehenna that will aid you in combat and exploration. For instance, the Traitorweed can temporarily turn enemies into allies, while the Breezebloom will lift your Vault Hunter to great heights so you can reach otherwise-out-of-reach areas. And of course, there’ll be loads of new loot to chase after, including plenty of Western-themed weaponry.

Gearbox also teased the 4th and final DLC with an image showing a Psycho surrounded by lots of colors. It’s centered around Krieg, the lovable psycho main character from Borderlands 2 Psycho DLC pack. It looks like we’ll finally get a chance to get inside Krieg’s head after all.
