Rumours swirled yesterday about Borderlands 2‘s first piece of big downloadable content. They’re true. The game’s first official campaign add-on is all about pirates.
It’s called Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty. It will take you to an entirely new area of Pandora, a wasteland that was once a beautiful resort by the ocean called Oasis. There you will meet new characters, embarking on a journey to find Captain Scarlett’s treasure and battling pirate bandits and sand worms along the way. Don’t worry, you can run most of them over with a sand skiff, the DLC’s new vehicle (pictured below).
The DLC will be out on October 16 — same day as the original release date for the Mechromancer character class — and available for $US10 on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
We’ll have hands-on impressions of the campaign DLC next Monday.
