Yesterday we saw
some investigation into the latest update for Borderlands 2 yield high results, with PS3Trophies confirming what many believed was the first DLC themed around pirates. It seems these rumours are actually true, with Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford confirming via Associated Press
that the DLC will indeed be pirate themed, and that we will be seeing it as early as October 16th.
"You can sense the pirate theme across the landscape, even though there's no water," said Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford. "It's all dried up. It feels more like Tatooine than an ocean. These bandits have really embraced the pirate lifestyle, and there's the legend of a treasure. That kicks off this whole adventure that the players can go on."
The new campaign tasks players with battling new enemies like sand worms, hovering across the terrain in the new sand skiff vehicle and collecting a new currency called seraph crystals. Pitchford said the new campaign was designed with all players in mind - from those who haven't finished the game to the elite who are replaying it again to discover more swag.
This will the first of four DLC's planned for Borderlands 2, with users able to purchase them either separately or in the Season Pass. Currently no price has been said yet for Australian gamers, however the US will be paying $9.99 for each separate DLC so most likely around that mark.
