Borderlands 2 Has Four Post-Release Campaign DLCs Planned

Four pieces of campaign DLC will add to your Borderlands 2 experience after the game's release on September 18.

Gearbox revealed their committment to releasing the extra content at their PAX Prime panel today. CEO Randy Pitchford noted to me that they'll be on par with the scope of something like Borderlands 1's General Knoxx DLC. No other details were revealed, though Pitchford stated that the four DLCs will be self-contained experiences for either players looking to continue levelling after completing the main game, or to experiment with new alternate characters.

Fans can get all four DLCs with the $US30 Season Pass.

    I am still put off by the whole Season Pass thing. Its a great idea, but they should look at it differently.

    Rather than slapping people in the face with a $30 charge in addition to buying the game on day one, they should give the Season Pass away for FREE for people that buy the game in the first month of release, as a reward for being an early supporter. Having a free Season Pass will encourage more "day one" sales at full retail price, rather than waiting for a discount in 6 months or "goty" in 12 months.

    Would also encourage people to keep hold of their game after they finish it, rather than trading it in on the next game, causing preowned sales and a loss for the developer/publisher. Sure, you could slap an "online pass" to gain revenue off preowned sales, which seems to be the popular thing to do... which is why I'd rather buy new - but will often wait for a 50% or better sale instead.

    An extra character, skin or theme isn't much of an incentive to buy day one. If all DLC was included, I'd be a lot happier to pay $99 for a game, rather than waiting until its $20 and pick up the DLC at a half price deal of the week.

      You know they're giving a free DLC character away to everyone that preorders the game right?

        To quote myself...
        "An extra character, skin or theme isn’t much of an incentive to buy day one."

          An extra character is heaps of an incentive for this type of game...... It will add like 4-80 hours more game play well for me it will..

            40*

          You know what's a great incentive to buy day one?

          The game.

            Fucking oath i can't wait to play this game!

      We ban everything else in Oz, why can't we ban bloody DLC!!??

      I got the game + the season pass for less than $99 bucks....
      Go ahead and wait till it's $20, i am going to go out on a limb and say you will be waiting more than a year.

      It's also a steamworks game, good luck trading it in....

        I got the game and Season pass for $52 =\

          $49. a winner is me.

    I picked up the Season Pass on Steam during the pricing glitch... Paid $4 per content :)

    I sincerely hope these 4 DLC's don't include the free Mechromancer DLC that's included if you pre-order.

      Same i got it for $15.95 and god damn it was good value i also picked up the game for $37.50 if you head to green man gaming right now and use the code for 25% off.

    GMG25-1BW0K-K1A3G Hurry this is the code for 25% off it ends soon for borderlands 2 $37.50

      6 hours left on this code from this post

      I've been eyeing it off all day on GMG and have just caved. So much for not spending any more money til after I get back from holidays.

      UGH and I read this RIGHT AFTER I spend 70USD on steam FUUUUUUUUUUU

    People actually think these seadon passes are value for money?!
    Sad times.....sad times indeed....

      It is when it was 15.95 :D

    If the DLC is anything like Borderlands 1's, it was high quality, lengthy and lots of fun. Exactly what DLC should be. Borderlands does DLC right.

      You must be getting confused.

      Zombie Island was high quality, lots of fun but not very lengthy.
      Moxxi's Underdome was not high quality, not so much fun, and very lengthy if you wanted to beat the big tournaments.
      Secret Armory was high quality lots of fun and very lengthy. Want more of this.
      Robot Revolution was not high quality, not so much fun and only lengthy if you grind out the random drops.

    As long as we don't get another Mad Moxxi's tournament DLC and another grindfest like the Robot Revolution DLC I'll be a happy camper.
