New Borderlands 2 DLC Release Date Announced

New Borderlands 2 DLC Release Date Announced

You might recall us informing you on what appeared to be the first of four DLCs planned for Gearbox’s Borderlands 2. It didn’t take long for the developer to officially announce that Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty will be making its way to gamers a lot sooner than any of us could have imagined.

The $10 add-on will give off quite the pirate feel to the new Oasis area, a desert region where pirates roam via sail barges. Gearbox President Randy Pitchford offically revealed the DLC today in an interview with the Associated Press. Here is an excerpt from it:

“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.”

Borderlands 2 hasn’t been out a full month and already it’s proving to have strong sales. Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty is set to be released on October 16. This is less than a week away. I wonder if the release date has anything to do with the reports of information uncovered by savvy PC owners.
