Out Now! Guns, Love, and Tentacles

Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock, the second campaign add-on for Borderlands 3, is available now. This release coincides with a free level cap increase that raises the maximum Vault Hunter level to 57.

The engagement party celebrating the upcoming union of Sir Alistair Hammerlock and Wainwright Jakobs is now in full swing on Xylourgos. The venue that the adventurous grooms-to-be have chosen for this joyful gathering is an unusual one to say the least. Xylourgos is a harsh, windswept ice planet where you’re never far from ferocious fauna, and the town of Cursehaven where invited guests are meeting up sits in the shadow of a colossal monster carcass that’s worshipped by local occultists. Should be a fun time!

Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock is the second of four campaign add-ons that are included with the Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe Edition and Season Pass. It’s also available to purchase separately though you will, of course, need to own a copy of Borderlands 3 to play it.

What's New:

  • Explore multiple zones on the all-new planet of Xylourgos
  • Complete spine-tingling new story and side missions
  • Confront new enemies including alien beasts, mutated occultists, and formidable bosses
  • Add new Legendary Weapons, Class Mods, and other gear to your arsenal
  • Collect new Vault Hunter Heads and Skins, Vehicle Skins, and interactive Room Decorations

In order to reach Xylourgos with an existing Vault Hunter, you’ll also need access to Sanctuary III, the starship you get by completing Episode 5 of Borderlands 3’s main story missions. When you’re ready to travel to Xylourgos, look for the invitation—highlighted with a yellow exclamation mark—in Hammerlock’s study on Sanctuary III. 

Alternatively, if you don’t have access to Sanctuary III yet or are looking for an excuse to play with a new character, you have the option to create a new Vault Hunter and have them bypass the opening acts of the Borderlands 3 story so you can head to Xylourgos right away. If you have a campaign add-on installed and would like to play that content with a fresh Vault Hunter, select Play on the main menu, followed by New Game; you'll then get to choose which storyline you want to jump into.

The grooms have requested no gifts please, but bring guns. Lots of guns.
