Borderlands 3 Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck Expansion Announced, Launches September 10

Borderlands 3

2K Games and developer Gearbox Software have announced the fourth expansion for Borderlands 3; Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck.

Featuring Psycho Krieg (the playable psycho class in Borderlands 2), scientist Patricia Tannis may soon uncover the mystery behind what makes the Borderland’s psychos so deranged. It may come from Vaulthalla, a place that drives those who learn its true nature mad.

Krieg is willing to tell all, but his psychosis has robbed him of legible speech. Tannis is now beaming players directly into Krieg’s mind to uncover the truth of Vaulthalla. Players will team up with Krieg’s calm inner voice and murderous personality to get through the warped setting.

The first gameplay will be revealed during IGN’s Studio Showcase on August 29th at 1:25 p.m PT. There will also be an episode of Bordercast broadcast today at 1 p.m. PT on Twitch (later on YouTube) discussing more about the add-on.

Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck launches September 10th. It will be included for those who have the Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe Edition or the Season Pass.

You can find the reveal trailer below.

You can find the full rundown of the base game (via Steam) below:

The original shooter-looter returns, packing bazillions of guns and an all-new mayhem-fueled adventure! Blast through new worlds and enemies as one of four brand new Vault Hunters – the ultimate treasure-seeking badasses of the Borderlands, each with deep skill trees, abilities, and customization. Play solo or join with friends to take on insane enemies, score loads of loot and save your home from the most ruthless cult leaders in the galaxy.


Stop the fanatical Calypso Twins from uniting the bandit clans and claiming the galaxy’s ultimate power. Only you, a thrill-seeking Vault Hunter, have the arsenal and allies to take them down.


Become one of four extraordinary Vault Hunters, each with unique abilities, playstyles, deep skill trees, and tons of personalization options. All Vault Hunters are capable of awesome mayhem alone, but together they are unstoppable.


With bazillions of guns and gadgets, every fight is an opportunity to score new gear. Firearms with self-propelling bullet shields? Check. Rifles that spawn fire-spewing volcanoes? Obviously. Guns that grow legs and chase down enemies while hurling verbal insults? Yeah, got that too.


Discover new worlds beyond Pandora, each featuring unique environments to explore and enemies to destroy. Tear through hostile deserts, battle your way across war-torn cityscapes, navigate deadly bayous, and more!


Play with anyone at any time with online co-op, regardless of your level or mission progress.

Borderlands 3 is out now on Windows PC (via the Epic Games Store, and Steam), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia.
