Here Are All The New Enemies You'll Face In The Next Borderlands 2 DLC

Gearbox, the creators of the Borderlands series, say the next campaign DLC — Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep — is the biggest piece of content for their sequel yet. More areas to wander, more guns to fire and, more importantly, more enemies to shred to pieces.

What do those enemies look like? Well, here they are. All of them. (Images and descriptions courtesy of Gearbox.)

    I remember when companies released big games with all their content included. Maybe releasing an expansion pack a year or two later. Anyone else remember that? I'm torn with the Borderlands franchise, I really enjoyed Borderlands and picked up the Game of the Year edition but I just can't bring myself to buy Borderlands 2 then spend more than the game is worth on DLC. Looks like I'll be picking it up once it goes GOTY.

      I can remember big game releases usually not being much bigger than the BL2 base game, or if it is it's cause they added heaps of similar, repetitive content. I know some companies get pretty ridiculous with how they handle DLC but ImO Borderlands is nothing like this, the DLC addons are pretty big and comparable to expansion packs from when "companies released big games with all their content included."

        This particular DLC and psycho pack don't actually bother me so much considering they came out what 9 months and 7 months respectively after BL2 was released in September. But Captain Scarlett and Mr. Torgue within two months after release definitely would have been ready to go on launch of BL2 and should have been included. Mechromancer pack fair enough they wanted a pre-order bonus.

      They haven't not released content to sell later. They made a full game BL2 which can take 20+ hours to complete plus multiplayer and replay value. To add further value to the game you like they have continued to expand the universe so that you can replay it even more. These are all new assets.

      This is no different to what used to be called an expansion pack. This isn't content that should've or would've been included in the original game.

      I've pumped well over 200 hours into BL2, and maybe only 30 of that has been the DLC so far (I've only finished Torgue's Campaign of Carnage so far, due to career commitments). To say that BL2 is not a complete game on its own is pretty far fetched, especially considering the Diablo-style replayability which, like Diablo, is improved with friends. As a dollar to time ratio, it's easily amongst the best value gaming experiences of my nearly 20 years of gaming.

    Yea, if this is not included in the season pass, I will not be happy. usually only get a season pass if I think I will use all of the DLC, which I have so far with BL2. If they want another 15 bucks or whatever for this over the season pass, i probably wont get it. Whats the point of season pass if they do not include everything for you? Hope its in there..

      This is the final DLC included in the Season Pass (ie the last of the 'planned' 4 expansions). However, if they decide to create more DLC expansions you will have to purchase separately.

      Out of all the DLCs this one defiantly looks the most interesting, still happy I managed to get the pass during the Steam price mixup and get it $16.

    Borderlands 2: Assault on Dragon keep or - Skeleton Simulator 2013.

    I was hoping Spiderpants would be an enemy. Gearbox does not disappoint.

    For those who are wondering, "Spiderpants" was a typo that a person made on the forums when referring to "Spiderants" and then people just ran with it from there.
