Borderlands 3 – Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot Official Reveal Trailer

About the DLC:

PULL OFF THE ULTIMATE CASINO HEIST 
Moxxi's assembling a crew to plunder a derelict space station casino and you've proven yourself worthy of joining her ragtag team of "experts." Successfully battle your way through Hyperion security forces and crazed casino-goers to reach a safe loaded with Eridium, cash, and all-new Legendary loot! 

THE HANDSOME JACKPOT 
This once-thriving destination is packed with unique zones worthy of Handsome Jack's lavish lifestyle and dirty dealings but has been on total lockdown since his death. 

YOU READY FOR THIS? 
To reach The Handsome Jackpot you need to have played enough of the Borderlands 3 story to have access to Sanctuary III. 
The enemies and loot aboard the station will scale to your Vault Hunter's level, ensuring that the casino heist missions and new Crew Challenges are suitably difficult and rewarding. 

BEAT CASINO SECURITY 
Get a blast from Pandora's past when you battle the Hyperion forces that outlived Handsome Jack, including never-before-seen enemies and larger-than-life bosses. 

SCORE ALL-NEW LOOT! 
Walk away with Legendary weapons and gear and expand your collection of customization items with Vault Hunter Heads & Skins, Weapon Trinkets, an ECHO Device Skin, and new Emotes.

First of many, I guess.

The season pass includes 4 pieces of DLC for now, first of which is this one






I wish they hadn't gone down this DLC path. Handsome Jack is dead, and in my opinion, continuing to include him is repetitive. Just because he was a good character doesn't mean he should be involved in major ways in games after Borderlands 2.
