Next month more DLC is coming Borderlands 3 in the form of Guns, Love, and Tentacles. This campaign add-on centres around an engagement party for the characters Hammerlock and Wainwright, and looks to be inspired by Lovecraft (if the tentacles didn’t tip you off).

“A couple of familiar faces will be among the guests at the betrothed partners’ engagement celebration: former Vault Hunter Gaige is moonlighting as a wedding planner, joined as always by her badass robot BFF Deathtrap. Pay no attention to the gargantuan monster’s corpse nearby; this party’s going to be legendary!” reads the official description on the Borderlands 3 site.

The setting of this DLC is a new planet called Xylourgos. This planet is covered with ice and features new enemies to shoot, including occultists which once again bring that Lovecraft feeling home.

If you’re a new or returning Borderlands 3 player you will be able to skip the opening acts of the game and head to Xylourgos immediately. Enemies and items on the planet scale to player level, so you won’t be instakilled if you’re stepping foot on the ice as a level one character.

Of course no piece of Borderlands content is complete without new guns and other items, which are available here. On top of shooty and explody things, new skins and room decorations will be on offer too.

Guns, Love, and Tentacles will be available come 26th March and is paid DLC, so it will need to be bought separately. It’s also included in the season pass so owners of that will have access to it without the need for another purchase.

Embedded below is a short trailer to show off what can be expected from the new content. Make sure you check out the Borderlands 3 site too as it features some stills and screenshots of some of the new content.
