Borderlands 3’s next DLC is on the horizon. Bounty of Blood: A Fistful of Redemption will release on June 25th. This next DLC will give players a taste of the old west in the town of Vestige. The sheriff of this forgotten town has issued bounties to hunt down a local gang that is terrorizing it.

Once a long-gone company’s testing ground for weaponry and biological experiments, the dusty wastes of Gehenna are now lorded over by genetically modified beasts and their keepers, the vicious Devil Riders gang.

Bounty of Blood will feature side missions that will “have a tangible and lasting impact on the locals’ livelihoods.” The town of Vestige will change as players make choices during story progression. Players who may not have progressed far enough into the Borderlands 3 story will still be able to access it. When creating a new character, or Vault Hunter, they will simply level boost to access campaign add-on content. The game’s enemies and reward system will also scale to your character’s level. Rewards may include legendary items such as Vault Hunter Heads, vehicle skins, and other items.

No western is complete without your loyal and trusty steed. From fantasy to science fiction and the old west, we see them. A Fistful of Redemption will be no different. This time around, players will mount a creation called the Jetbeast. Gearbox creative director Matt Cox describes it in their reveal on the Borderlands Show as “half jet bike, half creature.”

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
