Borderlands 3's DLC 1 release date was revealed as fans await a new content drop. On Dec. 19, Borderlands 3 fans should expect the first wave of downloadable content to hit the servers of one of the most popular first-person loot-a-shooter.

Here's everything fans need to know about DLC Pack 1.

Borderlands 3 DLC 1 Release Date Confirmed for Dec. 19

DLC 1 will be titled Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot. Given the obvious naming of the DLC, fan favorite character Handsome Jack will be making a return as Moxxi as the Vault Hunters team up to raid Handsome Jack's luxurious space station casino full of valuable goodies.

Along with the main story mode, there will be plenty of side missions and tasks to complete while in Handsome Jack's casino, so DLC Pack 1 will have plenty to offer even for players who blow through campaigns pretty easily. Additionally, it appears that Handsome Jack's casino is built from the remains of an old Hyperion Stronghold, so expect some familiar enemies and creatures to be lurking around some dark corners.

Given that casinos are all about opulence and flashiness, expect excellent rewards for taking down enemies and completing missions, including emotes, outfits, and of course, some legendary weapons.
