Gearbox announced Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock, the second piece of post-release Borderlands 3 story content, at PAX East earlier today. It will launch on March 26.

Guns, Love, and Tentacles will revolve around the wedding of Wainwright Jakobs and Sir Alistair Hammerlock, nuptials that were teased during the main game’s credits. But since this is Borderlands, some sort of otherworldly horror is going to be unleashed so the player can fire copious amounts of bullets in its direction.

Gaige, the teenage Vault Hunter from Borderlands 2, will make an appearance alongside her Deathtrap robot as Wainwright and Alistair’s wedding planner.

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford also shared some small details concerning the third and fourth expansions coming later as part of the season pass. Concept art for DLC 3 shows that it will be vaguely western-themed, and Pitchford explicitly mentioned iconic spaghetti western A Fistful of Dollars as an inspiration during his presentation. DLC 4 is currently in the early development stages, but Pitchford said that the tentative plan is for players to “experience what it’s like to be inside the head of the wildest psycho,” a possible reference to Krieg, another Vault Hunter from Borderlands 2.

Until then, Borderlands 3 fans can expect a variety of content throughout autumn, ranging from an overhaul of the Mayhem system to free content updates with new bosses and loot. More details are expected as we near their release dates in April and May.


    Article is missing out the fact that Borderlands 3 leaves Early Access on march 13 ( it comes to steam)

      Early access? Games been fully released since mid September 2019. The stubborn hold outs for the steam release are the ones missing out on content, not getting more.

        I dunno, considering all the problems it had at release and poor class balancing that thrown up on reddit and on here and other gaming sites, calling it Early Access is fairly apt

          Ehh, everyone will have a different experience depending on their play style, but apart from a couple of wobbly performance issues that were patched very early on, I've never found the game to have any issues that would make me consider the game early access.
          I would not be enjoying the end game content without the introduction of Mayhem 4 that was introduced a couple of months after release, however it's introduction coincided with my natural progression to that point of the game anyway so would have only been an issue for them speed runner types.

    This is why I can't play it yet, I got burned on 2 when literally like a dozen more DLCs were released after I played it, which is great because that's a lot of content but also means these days I have to wait for all the DLC to be out before I play a game.
