Bloodthirsty psychos are everywhere in the Borderlands, but what makes them so uniformly deranged? Brilliant scientist Patricia Tannis theorizes they've all been driven insane by the knowledge of a mythical place she's dubbed ""Vaulthalla."" And the key to uncovering this legendary location lies with the most badass psycho of them all: Krieg, an unlikely ally who swings his viscera-soaked buzz-axe on behalf of the Crimson Raiders. Unfortunately, every attempt to get information from Krieg quickly devolves into yells of ""Butchery for juicy weasels!"" and other equally unhelpful exclamations. The only way to learn the true nature of Vaulthalla is to climb inside Krieg's chaotic mind and seek it out yourself. Using absurdly advanced technology, Tannis is sending you and your fellow Vault Hunters on a mission set entirely within Krieg's consciousness. You'll have to befriend both sides of Krieg's psyche: the screaming murder machine the world sees every day, and the calm inner voice that tries to steer Krieg's rampages in the right direction. You'll explore a surreal mindscape where the laws of physics and human decency rarely apply, helping Krieg process his warped worldview and traumatic memories by blasting his inner demons to bits. Just try not to succumb to lunacy inside Krieg's imagination, which is littered with memory fragments, distorted landscapes, and meat. So much meat. Only by surviving Krieg's twisted inner world can you reap the rewards of Vaulthalla, so say goodbye to sanity as you know it. Or as Krieg would say, ""Chew the spine and splash the eyeballs! It's the happiest day of your death!"" This content requires Borderlands 3 to play and is included in the Season Pass. WHAT'S NEW Journey through the many demented vistas of Krieg's psyche, where anything is possible and very probably violent Experience the world as Krieg sees it, including his perception of fan-favorite characters like Maya, the light of his twisted life Overcome a vast array of life-threatening manifestations that Krieg's mind conjures up Expand Krieg's mind and Tannis' research in surreal side missions and Crew Challenges Score powerful Legendary weapons and gear that will still work outside of Krieg's consciousness, according to Tannis Acquire brain-busting cosmetic items including Vault Hunter Heads and Skins

Borderlands 3: Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck is a bizarre odyssey through Kreig's cranium that holds one great boss battle but few other surprises.

Read full review

Although it can feel slow-going at times, Borderlands 3: Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck benefits from its lore-heavy framework and a clear focus on one major character. If Gearbox has anything to say about it, this isn't the end of Borderlands 3's DLC, despite the fact that this is the final expansion of the first season pass. There's plenty of room for improvement if it is meant to be.

Despite once again proving that the DLCs for Borderlands 2 were considerably better than those for B3, Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck is an excellent addition to close the season of downloadable content for B3 and its best expansion among the four of the Season Pass.

Review in Spanish | Read full review

Fustercluck doesn't add anything that feels super new, it at least offers up an incredibly Borderlands-y expansion filled with meat chunks and silly weapons - and it's the only game this year that'll let you shoot down the actual moon, go on a mini quest to retrieve it, load it into a catapult and use it to batter down the walls of a meat castle. So, y'know, there's that.
