Gearbox have released a reveal trailer for the upcoming DLC for Borderlands 3, called Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot. Yes, the title kinda says it all, doesn’t it? The DLC is coming out on December 19th, and it’s going to send you to pull a heist in Handsome Jack’s casino. Moxxi is out for blood, because Jack stole her designs to build said casino. Your incentive? Well, you get to rob a casino, what more do you want?
Want to cause more mayhem in Borderlands 3? Of course you do. Well, who better to lead you onto the road of further death and destruction than Moxxi? And what better target for bedlam and murder than Handsome Jack and his casino, the Handsome Jackpot? If what Moxxi says in the new trailer (which you can check out below) is to be believed, Handsome Jack stole her designs for the casino. Naturally, she wants revenge, and is offering you to help her. As for your reward, well, you’re going to go loot a casino. You’re going to get tons of loot for your troubles.
The trailer is admittedly light on details, not that you need any excuses to go blow stuff up. Still, there are some things we can glean from it. For one, it seems like the Handsome Jackpot seems to be a space station of some sort, and the whole thing is a casino. So, there’ll be a lot of ground to cover. Also, Moxxi will apparently provide you a crew to perform the heist with, and they certainly look like a lively, colorful bunch. I’m sure they’re not gonna be annoying in any way whatsoever.
Lastly, you can expect a lot of resistance from the Hyperion Corporation forces, sentient slot machines included. Which is to be expected, seeing as how you’re going to be bothering Handsome Jack. But, of course, none of that should dissuade you on your mission to plunder the presumably rich loot that Jack’s casino will have to offer. So, mark your calendars for December December 19th!
