Borderlands 3 returns with the final of the four DLC packs included in the season pass with Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck (no, that’s not a typo). As is tradition with Borderlands, the game tends to get more wacky and crazy the further that you progress and the fourth DLC does not disappoint in that department.

Disclaimer: if you did not like Borderlands 3 or any of the DLCs 1 to 3, you probably won’t like this DLC either. But why would you be reading this anyway if you didn’t like them? Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck doesn’t bring anything new to the table, it just gives you more of that crazy Borderlands goodness and, lets be honest, who isn’t satisfied with that?

The majority of this DLC happens inside the mind of Krieg and I mean that literally; you will be inside of the brain of a psycho. I emphasised that because it’s supposed to be strange but now that I think of it… we are talking about Borderlands so it’s pretty normal, actually!

The main focus of this DLC is giving the player some insight into the backstory of one of Borderlands 3’s most mentally insane characters, delving into his deep backstory and also get a sense of his perspective of everything around him. This helps in developing the character in a much more impactful way than the game had previously managed, however, I don’t think that the DLC quite nails the shock factor. Krieg ends up being more or less how you would have expected him to be, with a fairly predictable backstory. Nonetheless, the journey deep into his mind is a fun one and you’ll certainly enjoy yourself.

One area where the DLC absolutely nails it is, in my opinion, in the environments you visit within Krieg’s mind. The developers have done an incredible job of creating creepy, demented areas which could only come from the mind of a Psycho. These areas are very different from anything else you’ve explored during your time with Borderlands 3 thus far and that is something which manages to make the DLC substantially more enjoyable to play.

The best part of the DLC by far though, is the boss fight which you’ll encounter deep into the story. You’ll face off against a train called the Locomobius which will haunt you as you try to wade your way through the environment. The train is alive and can suddenly teleport into the area in any direction it desires, eviscerating anything which stands in its path. This boss fight is so unique and surprising that it makes the DLC worth playing just to experience it alone. I don’t want to spoil too much about the boss fight due to the sheer shock value that the train offers, however, there are some very cool and interesting things the boss will do as you get closer to the train’s personal lair, where you will have a final showdown with your automotive enemy.

Overall, Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck doesn’t add much new to the Borderlands 3 formula, bar the absolutely stellar boss fight, but frankly, it doesn’t need to. The final DLC of the season pass delivers more of the same tried and tested Borderlands fun, and I’m more than happy with that!
