What you need to know

  • Gearbox has revealed that Borderlands 3's next will focus on the marriage of Wainwright and Hammerlock, complete with a Cthulhu-like monster.
  • Gaige will make an appearance in the DLC.
  • This expansion releases on March 26.
  • Gearbox also teased DLC 3 and 4, which may feature some wild western aspects and Krieg.

Borderlands 3's next DLC, "Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright and Hammerlock," was revealed during Gearbox Studios' showcase at PAX East 2020. The focus of this expansion is the marriage between Wainwright Jakobs and Sir Hammerlock. But of course nothing ever goes as planned in the Borderlands universe, and some Cthulhu-like Eldritch horror shows up to crash the party.

Sir Alistair Hammerlock and Wainwright Jakobs are finally tying the knot, and they want you to come celebrate their upcoming nuptials on the ice planet of Xylourgos. Those adventuresome lovebirds have chosen a venue that's as exotic as it gets; the frozen wastes of Xylourgos have thinned out all but the most vicious wildlife, and the eerie town of Cursehaven where you've all agreed to meet is located beneath the colossal carcass of a fallen monster.

Fan-favorite Vault Hunter Gaige is set to make an appearance in this DLC as well. Gearbox also teased what players can expect from DLCs 3 and 4. The next DLC after "Guns, Love, and Tentacles" is set to feature some elements inspired by the wild west. DLC 4, which is subject to change since Gearbox has just begun work on it, should bring back Krieg, but no promises were made.

Free content drops for everyone also include an updated Mayhem Mode 2.0, an event called Revenge of the Cartels, and a new Guardian Takedown.

Guns, Love, and Tentacles is set to drop on March 26 for all available platforms. It will be included in the Season Pass or available as a separate purchase.
