Krieg is back in one fustercluck of a Borderlands 3 campaign add-on

More On: Borderlands 3

Borderlands players were introduced to Krieg back in Borderlands 2 as a DLC playable character and he was, shall we say, a unique character to play as. I mean, he is a psycho after all, but what makes a psycho a psycho? Tannis wants us to find out and to do so we have to dive deep into the chaotic mind of everyone's favorite psycho himself. We dove deep into Claptrap back in The Pre-Sequel, so it's nice to dive a bit deeper into another Borderlands favorite...though you might want to leave your sanity at the door for this one.  The latest campaign DLC for Borderlands 3, Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck, takes us into the mind of everyone's favorite psycho as we search for a mythical place that Tannis calls "Vaulthalla" which she believes is what drives psychos insane. To reach Vaulthalla you must survive the perils of Krieg's twisted inner world and hopefully come out somewhat normal on the other side...but then again this is Borderlands we're talking about here.

Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck is set to launch on September 10th and is included in the Borderlands 3 Season Pass. September 10th also brings forth a new level cap increase which will be free to all players and will allow vault hunters to reach level 65. This will be the last planned level cap increase for the foreseeable future.

Borderlands 3’s fourth add-on launches September 10, along with a free level cap increase. See the official reveal trailer now!

Say goodbye to sanity as you know it, Vault Hunters! Borderlands® 3’s fourth campaign add-on – Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck – launches September 10. Take a peek inside the mind of a psycho by catching the official reveal trailer now, and tune in to The Bordercast today at 1 p.m. Pacific Time to see a special interview with Gearbox Software Game Director Maxime Babin.

Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck dares to ask: what makes the bloodthirsty psychos of Borderlands so uniformly deranged? Brilliant scientist Patricia Tannis believes they’ve been driven insane by the knowledge of a mythical place she calls “Vaulthalla,” and the key to uncovering this legendary location lies within the mind of Krieg, the most badass psycho of them all. So naturally, Tannis is sending you on a mission into Krieg’s chaotic mind in search of clues. Only by surviving the perils of Krieg’s twisted inner world can you reap the rewards of Vaulthalla.


Help both sides of Krieg's dual psyche process his traumatic memories by blasting his inner demons to bits, and try not to succumb to lunacy inside Krieg's fractured mindscapes as you:
  • Journey through the many demented vistas of Krieg's psyche, where anything is possible and likely very violent;
  • Experience the world as Krieg sees it, including his perception of fan-favorite characters like Maya – the light of his twisted life;
  • Overcome a vast array of life-threatening manifestations that Krieg's mind conjures up;
  • Expand Krieg's mind and Tannis' research in surreal side missions and Crew Challenges;
  • Score powerful Legendary weapons and gear that will still work outside of Krieg's consciousness, according to Tannis;
  • Acquire brain-busting cosmetic items, including Vault Hunter Heads and Skins.

Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck is included in the Borderlands 3 Season Pass, though a copy of the base game is required to play.

Not a Season Pass holder? Don’t worry – September 10 also marks the arrival of the next level cap increase, which will be free to all Borderlands 3 players. The cap will increase by five levels, making 65 the newest highest level for gear and player characters. Not only is this the largest single level cap increase since launch, it’s also the last planned level cap increase – at least for the foreseeable future.

Also, don’t forget the ongoing Borderlands 3 Anniversary Celebration continues through September 10. A new mini-event will be activated each week to celebrate one full year of total mayhem. Still to come: Mayhem Made Wild offers all Easy modifiers in Mayhem Mode and will run from August 27 through September 3. Then from September 3 through 10, enemies will drop more in-game cash during the final mini-event: Making It Rain.
