For those of you craving more Borderlands 2, get ready to unfurl the sails and explore new lands as the first DLC pack for the game has been announced. Titled “Captain Scarlet and Her Pirate’s Booty,” the campaign takes place in what Randy Pitchford describes as a place that
“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.”
It seems like Gearbox is following some of the same conventions set with all of the original Borderlands DLC, where Mad Moxxi, General Knoxx, Dr. Ned, and Claptrap were the narrative focal points of the packs. This upcoming campaign seems to focus on the pirate queen, Captain Scarlet. Other details include that the DLC will add new vehicles, a new currency called seraphs, and new enemies.
The DLC releases October 16th and costs $9.99. It can also be acquired through the $29.99 season pass that will include three other DLC packs in addition to this one and giving you a 25% savings if you’re already intending to buy all the DLC campaigns.
