Borderlands 3: Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot is the first feature DLC for a shooter with RPG elements Borderlands 3, in which we are trying to plunder with Moxxi an abandoned Star Casino, full of treasures left by the main antagonist of the second part of the cycle - Handsome Jack. Gearbox Software studio (the producer of the basic game) is responsible for the creation of this production. The publisher is 2K Games.
In Borderlands 3: Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot we help the title character get to the abandoned star casino, which used to be one of the hiding places of the sinister Handsome Jack, known from the second installment of the Gearbox Software series. What secrets and riches are hidden in the vault of this place?
The gameplay in Borderlands 3: Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot does not differ significantly from what we know from the base. We are still dealing with a first-person shooter, in which the main part of the game is to eliminate opponents, develop characters and gain more and more powerful equipment. The plugin doesn't introduce any new characters that can be controlled by the player - we continue to play with one of the heroes known from the basic game. To start the DLC plot, it will be necessary to reach the Sanctuary III ship in the main campaign of the Borderlands 3 (opponents and rewards scale to our Vault Hunter's level of sophistication).
The patch introduces enemies and locations associated with Hyperion corporation and its late president, Handsome Jack. Thus, some of the novelties are based on what we know from the second part of the cycle, but DLC also introduces completely new things - including powerful bosses to beat. The daredevils who manage to conquer the casino are awaited by the treasures of money, Eridium and completely new, legendary equipment. You can also get cosmetic items - emoticons, Echo skins and the like.
Borderlands 3: Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot does not introduce any new gameplay modes into the basic version of the game. The expansion can be played alone or with others - in a 4-person network or local cooperation mode (the second version of the multiplayer module, however, is available only on consoles).
DLC Borderlands 3: Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot does not make any significant changes to the graphics of the basic version of the game. However, we get a lot of new old opponents and locations, whose appearance often resembles what we know from the second part of the cult cycle. There is also a sense of humour characteristic of Borderlands.
Borderlands 3: Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot is dependable - it requires a basic version of Borderlands 3 to work.
