It will be accompanied by a new free event.
Gearbox shared the first details and materials for the new downloadable content for Borderlands 3 which will arrive in June. It will include both a new challenge for the final phase, Assault on the Guardian's Gap, and a new expansion called Blood Reward: For a Handful of Redemption.
The first additional content is specially designed for players who have completed Borderlands 3. Assault on the Keeper's Gap is a new assault designed to challenge players and their team. Like Maliwan Assault on the Clandestine Center, this new assault will be a great challenge that will adapt to the number of players in your group.
Four high-level chamber researchers will work together to undertake a reconnaissance mission to the planet of Minos Prime, locate a mysterious guardian signal and hire rebel guards on low-gravity platform sections while solving environmental puzzles. Rewards include themed weapons, equipment, and cosmetics.
The next addition is the third story DLC for Borderlands 3. Blood Reward: For a handful of redemption, which follows on from Moxxi's previous hit for Jackpot the Handsome and Weapons, Love and Tentacles: The Wedding of Wainwright and Hammerlock.
Blood Reward adds a whole new frame and a new cast of characters. Located on the desert planet of Gehenna, the players compete against a gang called the Demojinetes. Along the way, you will meet new faces like Rose, a very skillful warrior with pistol and katana, and Juno, a strong fighter with a difficult past. Your actions will have a direct impact on Vestigio and its inhabitants.
Complements to Blood Reward's gameplay include the Powered Beast, a customizable air motor that will help you cross the plains of hell. There are also new interactive items that add new combat and exploration skills, as well as Western-themed loot to earn.
Assault on the Guardian's Gap will launch for free on June 4, while Blood Reward: For a Fistful of Redemption will launch on June 25.
