Yee-Haw, Zane-san

A new Borderlands 3 DLC has been revealed! The Borderlands 3 Bounty of Blood DLC has been revealed, and it features a samurai cowgirl who's ready to kick ass and take names, whether she's using her futuristic revolver or a razor-sharp katana. That's not all, though — a new Takedown is also on the way!

The new DLC was revealed as part of The Borderlands Show Episode 7 which you can watch below if you've got an hour to kill:

Before they get into the new Borderlands 3 Bounty of Blood DLC, the hosts of The Borderlands Show highlighted the next big Takedown that will challenge players. Takedown at the Guardian Breach will be an "extreme challenge" according to the news post on the Borderlands website.

In Takedown at the Guardian Breach, players will have to deal with challenging puzzles and some low-gravity platforming sections. Of course, they'll also have to cut their way through hordes of enemies along with a miniboss and boss encounter. Complete it successfully and you'll score a bunch of cool items including themed weapons, gear, and cosmetics.

What's Coming in the Borderlands 3 Bounty of Blood DLC?

And now, on to the Borderlands 3 Bounty of Blood DLC. This new DLC will first and foremost feature fresh faces! You'll be meeting a bunch of brand-new characters on the desert planet of Gehenna.

Players are charged with collecting a bounty on The Devil Riders, a bunch of bandits who have been terrorizing the town of Vestige. You'll team up with locals like the talented warrior Rose (seen above) and the brawler Juno.

Throughout your time in Bounty of Blood, you'll help rebuild the town of Vestige by completing Story Missions and Crew Challenges. This new DLC will also feature a narrator who will talk about what's going on as you move through the story.

New mechanics are coming, too. A customizable Jetbeast hoverbike will help you zip around in a flash, and a bunch of new interactable objects will change up combat and movement. Two examples mentioned in the news post are the Traitorweed (which makes enemies into allies) and the Breezebloom (which will let you fly up into the air to reach new heights). As always, there will be a ton of new loot, too!

Finally, this update on the future of Borderlands 3 has yet another SHiFT code for players to use which will score you some sweet golden keys. Be sure to use it quickly — this code expires on June 4, 2020 at 11:59 PM PDT (that's June 5, 2020, at 2:59 AM EDT)!
