It's not very often that the Associated Press gets gaming news before gaming sites, but this is the case today. According to the AP
, everyone's favorite shooting and looting game, Borderlands 2
, is going to be getting its first taste of campaign DLC very soon.
Titled "Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty", your favorite vault hunter is going to be heading to a dried up ocean in search of more loot.
The AP is quoting Randy Pitchford with the following:You can sense the pirate theme across the landscape, even though there's no water. 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.Joystiq
has also managed to snag a few screenshots of the DLC and the box art (because digital content needs box art) featuring the eponymous Captain Scarlett.
According to the AP, "Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty" will be dropping on October 16th (hey, that's next week!) and will cost you 800 MSP (or free as part of the Borderlands 2
Season Pass). We'll be sure to keep you updated as more details and developments emerge.
