Gearbox has now confirmed that the rumors were indeed true, Borderlands 2 new DLC will be Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty. It’ll be available on October 16th (Hey, that’s my birthday!) which is replacing the Mechromancer’s original release date (who got released ahead of schedule).
This DLC “focuses on the one-eyed pirate queen Captain Scarlett and is set amid an expansive desert that features a bandit-filled shanty town called Oasis.” it will also feature players “battling new enemies like sand worms, hovering across the terrain in the new sand skiff vehicle and collecting a new currency called seraph crystals.”
Only costing $10, it would make for a great gift. Alternatively, if you want to take a gamble (is it really gambling, when it comes to Borderlands 2 content?) you can purchase a season pass for $29.99 and get access to all four campaign add-ons, for the price of three.
