An engagement party for the eons is happening in Borderlands 3, and you’re invited! Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock is the second campaign add-on for Borderlands 3, featuring the all-new ice planet of Xylourgos — and it’s available on Xbox One as of right now.
Sir Alistair Hammerlock and
Wainwright Jakobs are celebrating their upcoming nuptials on a planet worthy of
their adventurous ways, as Xylourgos offers just the right balance of thrilling
peril and untamed wilderness. It also just so happens to have a colossal
monster carcass perched above the decrepit little town where you’ll be staying.
The grooms have recruited the
galaxy’s most badass wedding planner: Gaige, a former Vault Hunter who doesn’t
go anywhere without her robot pal Deathtrap. Things seem to be going great
until the gang crosses paths with a band of creepy occultists, who are hellbent
on ruining the festivities. You’ll need to overcome mutated monstrosities,
vicious wildlife, and some pesky curses if you hope to save the day and keep
the engagement party going.
In case you need a quick
refresher on the “who’s who” for this campaign add-on, we’ve got you
covered. Alistair Hammerlock is a famed big game hunter who has helped you and
the Crimson Raiders countless times since his first appearance in Borderlands
2. His partner Wainwright Jakobs is the heir to Jakobs Corporation,
renowned for its rustic firearms; you first met him in Borderlands 3
during a daring rescue on Eden-6. And Gaige is a fan-favorite Vault Hunter who
first appeared in Borderlands 2 as the Mechromancer DLC class—alongside
Deathtrap, of course.
You’ll meet some unfamiliar faces
on Xylourgos too, including Burton Briggs, a local private eye, and Mancubus
Bloodtooth, the proprietor of The Lodge—a tavern that serves as your base of
operations once things inevitably go awry. The denizens of the local town have
been cursed, as evidenced by the eerie black substance dripping from their
eyes. Once things heat up and the bullets start flying, you’ll have to fight
for your life against alien beasts, tentacled occultists, and a clan of bandits
who’ve acclimated to Xylourgos’ wintry wastes.
It wouldn’t be Borderlands
without tons of loot to collect, and you can find plenty of precious gear in
Guns, Love, and Tentacles. With any luck, you’ll score some new Legendary
weapons, powerful Shield Mods and Class Mods, and additional cosmetics like Vault
Hunter Heads & Skins, interactive Room Decorations for your pad on
Sanctuary III, and all-new Vehicle Skins. Speaking of vehicles, they’re crucial
for getting around Xylourgos, which is a change of pace from the previous
campaign add-on, Moxxi’s
Heist of The Handsome Jackpot. As with that campaign add-on, Guns,
Love, and Tentacles is included in the Borderlands
3 Super Deluxe Edition and the Season Pass.
Looking ahead, we recently unveiled a
ton of free stuff coming to Borderlands 3 this spring, including
an endgame revamp with Mayhem Mode 2.0, a seasonal event called Revenge of the
Cartels, and a new Takedown themed around the mysterious Guardians. There’s
also a glimpse of the third campaign add-on in there, so be sure to check it
What are you waiting for, Vault Hunter? Get your butt to Xylourgos and help true love triumph over eldritch horror in Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock!
