Gearbox Software has shared official details about the third batch of Borderlands 3's paid story DLC.

The latest endgame gauntlet for Borderlands 3, called Takedown at the Guardian Beach, launches on June 4, with the latest campaign add-on, called Bounty of Blood: A Fistful of Redemption, is set to launch on June 24.

For June 4th's "Takedown at the Guardian Breach", the Vaulter Hunter will track a "mysterious Guardian signal" to Minos Prime on Tannis' orders. Rewards include themed weapons, gear, and cosmetics.

Following on from Moxxi's Heist of the Handsom Jackpot and Guns, Love and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock, it's clear that Gearbox have made a decision to give their DLC expansions ridiculously long names.

Bounty of Blood adds an all-new setting and a new cast of characters. Your Vault Hunter is after the bounty on the head of The Devil Riders, a gang of bandits who have been terrorizing the podunk town of Vestige, and to claim it you'll need to use a new vehicle, make the best of Gehenna's unusual flora, and collect a bunch of new loot (of course). 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. The player's choices throughout the story will have a direct impact on the town of Vestige. There are also new interactable objects that add new combat and exploration skills as well as western-themed loot to earn.

The tradition of Borderlands 3 DLC with long, clunky titles that don't fit well into headlines will continue in June with the release of Bounty of Blood - A Fistful of Redemption, a tale of a stranger who plays both sides of a vicious blood feud against each other, leaving nothing but death in his wake.

Borderlands 3 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, and Stadia.
