Borderlands 3: Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot is the first story DLC for the looter shooter with RPG elements Borderlands 3, in which we, together with Moxxi, are trying to plunder the abandoned Star Casino, full of treasures left by the main antagonist of the second part of the cycle - Handsome Jack. Gearbox Software (creators of the main game) is responsible for the development of the DLC. 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 Gearbox Software's series. What secrets and riches are hidden in its vault?
The gameplay in Borderlands 3: Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot does not differ significantly from what we know from the base gamr. We are still dealing with a first-person shooter, in which the mainstay of the game is to eliminate opponents, level up our characters and gain more and more powerful equipment. The expansion doesn't introduce any new playble characters - we continue to play with one of the heroes known from the base game. To start the DLC, it will be necessary to reach the Sanctuary III ship in the main campaign of Borderlands 3 (opponents and rewards scale to the level of our Vault Hunter).
The expansion introduces enemies and locations associated with the 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 series, but DLC also introduces completely new things - including powerful bosses to beat. The daredevils who manage to conquer the casino are awaited by treasures, Eridium and completely new, legendary equipment. We can also get cosmetic items - emotes, Echo skins and the like.
Borderlands 3: Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot does not introduce any new gameplay modes into the game. The expansion can be played solo or with others - in a 4-person online or local cooperation mode (the second version of the multiplayer module, however, is available only on consoles).
Borderlands 3: Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot DLC does not make any significant changes to the graphics of the base game. However, we ecounter a lot of old-new opponents and locations, whose appearance often resembles the second installment. The game also features tons of characteristic Borderlands humor.
Borderlands 3: Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot is a non-standalone expansion - it requires Borderlands 3 to work.
