The tradition of Borderlands 3 DLC with long, clunky titles that don’t fit well into headlines will continue in June with the release of Bounty of Blood – A Fistful of Redemption, a tale of a stranger who plays both sides of a vicious blood feud against each other, leaving nothing but death in his wake.

(That’s actually the plot of A Fistful of Dollars, the classic 1964 Spaghetti Western starring Clint Eastwood, but the homage is impossible to miss.)

In the Borderlands 3 take, you’ll travel to the small town of Vestige on the planet Gehenna to face off against a vicious gang of bandits called the Devil Riders who have been terrorizing the locals. That’s pretty close to the mark—not exactly like the Clint Eastwood film (or the Kurosawa film, or the Bruce Willis film, take your pick really), but still a very standard Western setup—maybe more akin to High Plains Drifter overall, but I digress.
