2K Games today announced the first DLC package for Borderlands, Gearbox's open-world "role-playing shooter" due to hit the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on Tuesday. "The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned" is the DLC's title.
A 2K release describes the pack's story thusly:
Tasked with keeping the workers of Jakobs Cove alive, Dr. Ned (who is not related to Dr. Zed from Fyrestone) does his job a little too well, creating zombies and other abominations that now run rampant in this region. Players will have to work alongside Dr. Ned as they embark on a quest to cure the inhabitants of Jakobs Cove in this full-fledged expansion filled with new enemies, new quests and rare loot drops.
The same release said only that "The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned" is "planned for release later this year." Price will be $US9.99 on PSN and for PC, 800 Microsoft points for the Xbox.
"The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned is in development at Gearbox Software and is the first in a series of downloadable expansions that will enhance the Borderlands mayhem in fun and exciting ways," says 2K.
