Games discussed:

The second Borderlands 3 expansion is coming in March, and will have players be a part of an surprisingly dangerous engagement party.

The upcoming Borderlands 3 expansion is called Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright and Hammerlock. The DLC will have players attend the wedding of Sir Hammerlock and Wainwright Jacobs on the icy planet of Xylourgos. The expansion will drop on March 26th. Players will be taken to the town of Cursehaven, which is situated under the body of a Vault Monster. Guns, Love, and Tentacles will feature a wealth of content, including new guns, bosses, and mods. Gaige, one of Borderlands 2's Vault Hunters, will also be making an appearance as an NPC.


Guns, Love, and Tentacles is the second expansion following Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot. Two more expansions are planned for release after Guns, Love, and Tentacles. The third DLC pack seems to have a western theme, with Gearbox describing it as "outlaws and dinosaurs." All four of these expansions are a part of Borderlands 3's Season Pass, which costs $49.99.

Gearbox has released a roadmap for Borderlands 3, revealing what is coming to the game over the next few months. Mayhem Mode 2.0 will release in April. The free overhaul of Mayhem Mode will feature new modifiers, and the ability to change a players Mayhem level through their ECHO device rather than having to change it on the Sanctuary III. Also coming in April is Bordrlands 3's next seasonal event. Entitled Revenge of the Cartels, the event will add a new map, new missions, and event-specific weapons. Finally, a new Takedown will be released in May. This new Takedown will be based around the Guardians, the mysterious figures of Eridian origins. More info on will come at a later date.

Borderlands 3 is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
