Recently Borderlands 3 increased the overall level-cap for players in addition to overhauling the endgame with the very welcome Mayhem Mode 2.0, tweaking it for greater variety across things like Class Mods and level scaling. But the big update late last week was the arrival of Bounty of Blood, a new western-tinged expansion that takes the action -- and loot -- to a new planet.
The sheriff of Vestige on the harsh frontier planet of Gehenna has issued a bounty on the violent, beast-riding Devil Riders gang, and it's time to collect. The townsfolk are tough as hell and will do what they can to help, but it falls on you to take the fight to the Devil Riders. Put them in the ground so the town can be rebuilt and folks can get back on their feet.
In addition to spinning a gritty Western-inspired tale of revenge, Bounty of Blood also lets you:
Traverse the open plains of Gehenna atop the new heavily-armed Jetbeast vehicle;
Leverage four new interactive objects that add complexity and variety to combat encounters;
Enjoy the company of an unseen narrator as you tackle new story and side missions;
Help rebuild the town of Vestige, where each of your successes has a tangible impact;
Take on a host of additional Crew Challenges, like tracking down treasure or claiming bounties on beasts and bandits alike;
Collect new Legendary loot and cosmetics pried from the cold, dead hands of rowdy gang members and feral critters.
One of the cool features is the ability to roll a new Vault Hunter and tackle the new content without having to play through the opening moments of Borderlands 3.
Having dipped our toes briefly into the new location we can safely say that it's well worth putting your space spurs for some old fashion' lootin'. Here's 15 minutes of gameplay from Bounty of Blood presented in 4K.
Borderlands 3 Bounty of Blood is available as part of the Super Deluxe Edition, the Season Pass, and sold separately.
