Blue Origin’s National Team won a $3.5 billion contract to develop and deploy a lunar lander for the Artemis program, this is for landings after Artemis III which is currently supposed to be handled by SpaceX’s Starship.
Blue Origin’s lander won over 3 other options with only the Dynetics Alpaca lander coming close.
Blue Origin is the leader of the National Team which includes Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Draper, Astrobotic and others. It’s a 16 meter tall 100% reusable lander with the propellent tanks placed above the crew module, allowing the crew to be close to the ground upon landing.

While we don’t really know that much about the vehicle, that does give me a perfect excuse to play with it in Kerbal Space Program 2
