If you’re on the Borderlands 2 train, get out your cash or show your season pass to the conductor because the first downloadable content is almost here.
Publisher 2K Games announced today its first add-on pack for Borderlands 2. Developer Gearbox Software is preparing Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty, the first DLC, for release on October 16. Scarlett’s Booty costs $9.99, or 800 Microsoft Points on the Xbox 360 … and I’m really starting to think they named it that just so I would have to write that sentence.
This add-on expansion includes a new minicampaign, characters, missions, enemy types, and guns. Players perform objectives for Captain Scarlett, who could be good or bad but is definitely a pirate. If I were to judge her book by the cover, I’d have to say she looks wicked evil.
Players also get to play around with a new sand skiff vehicle, which looks oddly familiar. Pray that no one makes you walk the plank into a monstrous desert hole creature — and if they do, hopefully you won’t accidentally kill the coolest character. Never forget.
