Since social distancing is the topic of the hour, what better time could there be to dive into a nice, meaty RPG shooter with a few (online) friends? Borderlands 3, which recently completed the jump from Epic Games Store exclusivity to the Steam storefront, has plenty of meat on its haunches for you to gnaw on over the next few weeks.
It's about to get meatier, too, as its campaign DLC, "Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock” is releasing on March 26th. To help bridge that nine day gap of anticipation, Gearbox has provided us with a nice helping of gameplay footage. While it may not last us a long time under current conditions, I imagine a combination of watching the below video and playing the core game will be enough to get you through the wait.
Tentacles, ice planets, and a ton of sweet loot - what's not to love? This wedding-themed DLC represents the second story-centric expansion to be added to the game, with the first being "Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot". If you're interested, a spring roadmap outlines what else is to come this season.
Borderlands 3 offers online co-op for up to four players and is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
