Seldom does a retail title bring you as much downloadable content as Borderlands 2
. Will the latest installment bring holiday cheer or have skeptics referencing the "ho ho ho" DLC approach?
In less than a week, fans of the series will be treated to "How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day". The story finds Marcus enlisting the help of the vault hunters to rescue a missing shipment of guns. Along the way, you'll fight new enemies as well as new takes on familiar ones. This all culminates in your showdown with Mister Tinder Snowflake.
Your reward? For starters, you'll get a snowman head with different expressions for each character. Additionally, there's unique holiday-themed costumes, such as a Santa suit for the Gunzerker and an ugly sweater for the Psycho. Let's not forget the overall reward of more gameplay if you enjoy the series.
