Gearbox have accidentally outed the first of their major DLC instalments that are planned for Borderlands 2. It turns out that they were preparing for it in advance, and included some of the files in yesterday’s Mechromancer DLC pack.
Thanks to PlayStation 3 Trophies, who were checking for new achievements they found evidence of Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty, which suggested a theme for what could very well be the first DLC pack. Some digging around in Steam files revealed yet more data, including the entire script which confirms it as DLC.
From what can be determined, Captain Scarlett is set to offer a lot of new features including a new location as well as many missions, weapons and bosses. Apparently there will also be a brand new rarity level (The return of Pearlescent?), which means there’s got to be plenty more loot.
Past that, we don’t have many details on Captain Scarlett other than it will be set in a place called Oasis (The middle of the desert?), but hopefully it will live up to the legacy of Borderlands DLC such as The Secret Armory of General Knoxx and Borderlands 2 itself!
