Borderlands 2 Getting New Character, DLC
Ryan Bloom / Dec 13th, 2012 No Comments
Borderlands 2 will be getting a new character and more downloadable content and it could be coming very soon, according to the President of Gearbox Software Randy Pitchford.
Replying to a fan on Twitter, Pitchford stated the team was working on a new character. Another user provided the follow-up question by asking if new content would be released before the end of the world on Dec. 21. Pitchford guaranteed more DLC for Borderlands 2 will be coming out “before the world ends.” However, it is difficult to determine if he meant the Mayan end of the world or just sometime in the future.
[adsense250itp]No concrete details regarding the future DLC and when it could be ready for release have been discovered. It is fairly easy to add a new character so that should be ready soon but any DLC containing actual in-game missions takes longer to create.
Borderlands 2 is a unique first-person shooter that combines gunplay with elements from role-playing games. An artistic style and experience points system combine to separate the Borderlands franchise from boring and repetitive modern shooters.
Released on Sept. 18, Borderlands 2 received excellent review scores from across the gaming industry. Kalvin Martinez handled the Gaming Illustrated Borderlands 2 Review and gave the game a 90 percent. He also gave the game the honor of becoming a Gaming Illustrated Editor’s Choice Award winner. It is also a Game of the Year candidate for many gaming publications.
The Mechromancer DLC released in October introduced Gaige as a new character. It was previously only available to members of the Premiere Club but later became available to all Borderlands 2 players. Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty and Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage are the DLC packs containing new campaign content that have released since the game’s launch.
Borderlands 2, developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games, has shipped over five million copies since its release.
