There are these people out there that like to read PC patch notes. I'm not talking about just reading the notes presented, but digging around for the real
patch updates. One such user, named Legendrew, discovered something marvelous in the latest Borderlands PC Patch.
Ok, i know Gearbox probably didn't want this to come out but i might aswell post it up for everone now a large proportion of the community knows anyway. Dlc is close to being among us and recently in the pc patch 1.31 a folder which contained information about the next dlc was found. If you don't want to know this or want to keep the suprise in the DLC then stop reading now... seriously now.
It gets better!
Basically the ninja claptrap was created by Hyperion to stop the vault hunters from taking all the guns and treasure etc... but was too clever, he saw other claptraps being 'enslaved' and 'killed' - he wanted it to stop so he started a claptrap revoloution. Now Hyperion have asked the vault hunters to help them stop the claptrap uprising and return things back to normal but the claptraps have gone about... re-animating dead people and adding claptrap robot parts to them to fight in their army. Some of the people re-animated include Dr Ned. Commandant Steele and General Knoxx.
Legendrew has dialog, characters, locations, enemies, and items all listed from his discovery.
You'd think Gearbox would be slightly upset about this, right?
Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford, via IGN:
There are a few things there, but I think it's like reading a draft of a script for a movie that hasn't even been announced yet, let alone launched - yeah you might learn something, but it's not the real thing and it could just drive you crazy thinking about it.
When asked about the premature release of the information Pitchford provided the following:
Seeing that this happened does make me want to hide some super juicy secrets in the DLC, though. If we do, we'll be sure to hide them really good, though, so it takes more than a day to find them.
I wonder who will find them first?
Hear that gamers? Mr. Pitchford just issued you a challenge, and it involves finding an adventure on par with capture Carmen San Diego and Waldo, together with the same net! Okay, slight exaggeration, but I think Gearbox has taken this in stride and instead of denying it and letting it go, they could be tweaking the DLC to be even better!
