It feels like only yesterday that Borderlands 3 was launched. But that hasn’t stopped the PR team from deciding this weekend is a good time for a free trial. You know, to try and convince any fence sitters that the game is worth their time and money. Just in time for its first proper DLC.
The trial begins today – November 21st – and runs straight through to the 24th (Sunday). During that time, you’ll be able to play the entire game from start to finish, if you’re good enough. Or just try your luck and see where you get, all in the knowledge that your progress (however small) will transfer across when you purchase your own copy of the game.
Which is just what Gearbox and 2K Games are hoping you’ll do.
Now there’s a chance you don’t like what you play. But if you do, there’s a DLC scheduled to drop on December 19th – just in time for Christmas. Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, as it is known, will see Handsome Jack making a holographic return as you try to reclaim a casino. It will be bundled with new loot, enemies and areas for you to find/fight/explore, and promises to expand your Borderlands 3 adventure a little further than the vanilla game alone.
It is all revealed in the trailer above.
