Ready for an extended look at Borderlands® 3’s third campaign add-on Bounty of Blood ahead of its 25 June release date? Then you’ve come to the right place, Vault Hunter! To see 15 minutes of brand new gameplay footage (with all spoilers carefully removed) read on.
If you caught Gearbox creative director Matt Cox on 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 terrorizing 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 customizable 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.
Bounty of Blood rides into town on 25 June and is included with the Borderlands 3 Season Pass and Super Deluxe Edition. For a closer look a Borderlands 3’s third expansion, click here and to see new Bounty of Blood art, be sure to follow @borderlands on Twitter.
