The tradition of Borderlands 3 DLC with long, clunky titles that don't fit well into headlines will continue in June with the release of Bounty of Blood - A Fistful of Redemption, a tale of a stranger who plays both sides of a vicious blood feud against each other, leaving nothing but death in his wake.

The launch of Takedown at the Guardian Breach coincides with the close of the Revenge of the Cartels event, so make sure to wrap that up in the next week or so if you still have goals left to accomplish.

Bounty of Blood will be the third of four story DLC packs in Borderlands 3's season pass, and Gearbox detailed the adventure in a recent episode of The Borderlands Show. Fans can look forward to something else a little sooner, though. Set on the desert planet of Gehenna, players face a gang called The Devil Riders. Once there, players will find themselves surrounded by rogue Guardians, all of whom deserted their group. Rewards include themed weapons, gear, and cosmetics.

Bounty of Blood will also boast a bevy of new game mechanics to complement its story, like the customizable Jetbeast hoverbike that'll help you traverse the open plains of Gehenna in a hurry. The DLC is narrated by an unseen figure and features new characters such as warrior Rose and brawler Juno. Your actions will have a direct impact on Vestige and its denizens, as you help build the town back up through story missions and Crew Challenges alike. "Every Western needs its horse", says Matt.

Alberta Health Services has an online self-assessment tool that you can use to determine if you have symptoms of COVID-19. As of Friday, 54 Albertans are in hospital with COVID-19, six of whom are in intensive care units.

"Traitorweed, for example, can temporarily turn enemies into allies when shot, while the Breezebloom will boost your Vault Hunter to great heights so you can reach otherwise-out-of-reach areas."

Takedown at the Guardian Breach will be released for free on June 4 while Bounty of Blood: A Fistful of Redemption will be released on June 25.

And of course, tons of new loot await as you shoot your way through Borderlands 3.

Borderlands 3 is in stores now for the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One platforms.
