Borderlands 3 Campaign DLC: Bounty of Blood: A Fistful of Redemption Launches On June 25

New endgame content also due out on June 4.

The first-person shooter Borderlands 3 will soon be releasing its third campaign DLC add-on, according to publisher 2K Games and developer Gearbox Software. Titled Bounty of Blood: A Fistful of Redemption (an obvious homage to A Fistful of Dollars, a Spaghetti Western starring Clint Eastwood), the DLC will be launching on June 25.

Bounty of Blood: A Fistful of Redemption will take place in an all-new setting with a cast of characters never before seen. The player’s Vault Hunter will be traveling to the harsh desert planet of Gehenna to claim a bounty on The Devil Riders, a vicious gang of bandits mounted atop fearsome beasts. For the longest time, The Devil Riders have been terrorizing the small town of Vestige. To have any semblance of a chance at stopping their reign of terror, the player must team up with a cast of colorful locals like Rose, a warrior who’s adept with a pistol and a katana, and Juno, a brawler with a mysterious past. Doing specific quests and completing side missions will have a visible and lasting impact on the town of Vestige, so make your choices carefully.

A couple of new gameplay mechanics can also be experienced in Bounty of Blood: A Fistful of Redemption, such as the customizable Jetbeast hoverbike that will be the Vault Hunter's main mode of transportation throughout the plains of Gehenna. The Jetbeast, which is half bike and half creature, can also be geared up with artillery weaponry like dual machine guns or mortars. Interactive objects are now also present in the environment which can be used to aid you while combating the Devil Riders. These include the Traitor weed, which turns enemies into allies, or the Breezebloom, which will boost your Vault Hunter into high and hard-to-reach areas. Most importantly, there's lots of Western-themed weaponry (Jakobs lovers, it’s your time to shine).

Bounty of Blood: A Fistful of Redemption will be included in the Borderlands 3 Season Pass as well as with the Super Deluxe Edition. Also, a new endgame gauntlet will be made available for free on June 4. Borderlands 3 is available to be played on the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Stadia.
