Yeah, we thought we might have been able to grab you with that headline too. I mean, who doesn't want to at least see a skinless fire-breathing distant galactic cousin of our very own T-Rex? Frankly, I don't want to live in a world where such things can't be seen. Or shot at. And looted from.
And so, with that in mind, Borderlands 3: Bounty of Blood is looking to be just what the space palaeontologist ordered.
Before we get to the solid 14+ minutes of gameplay (sans spoilers), here's 2K Games and Gearbox Software's official line on the third expansion for Borderlands 3.
If you caught Gearbox creative director Matt Coxon the most recent episode of The Borderlands Show, you already know Bounty of Blood features an all-new setting: the harsh desert planet of Gehenna. Here your Vault Hunter will interact with an entirely new cast of characters as an unseen narrator commentates your adventure. Your mission? To claim a bounty on The Devil Riders, a vicious gang of bandits that’s been terrorising the small town of Vestige.
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.
Bounty of Blood also features several gameplay additions, like the customisable JetBeast hoverbike that'll help you traverse the open plains quickly. You’ll also find 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 will boost 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.
