Borderlands 2 Mr. Torgue DLC Out Today

Mr. Torgue wants you to enter his Badass Crater of Badassitude.

Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage downloadable content package for Borderlands 2 is available today on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Gamers can purchase the DLC pack for Borderlands 2 through the Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 Microsoft Points or $9.99 via the PlayStation Network and PC. Players who purchased the Season Pass for the game will be able to download Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage at no extra charge.

The new DLC puts players in Mr. Torgue’s Badass Crater of Badassitude. Much like Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot DLC for the original Borderlands, arena battles will be a big part of the expansion. Unlike that DLC, however, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage is story driven.

Arena battles are available as players must win Mr. Torgue’s tournament to uncover the secrets of the Badass Crater of Badassitude. Of course, it won’t be that easy. In order to enter the tournament, gamers must first complete missions for a new character named Piston to earn his sponsorship.

Also included in the new expansion are new quests, heads, skins, bosses, and new weapons and currency drops.

Borderlands 2, developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games, released on Sept. 18. The game has received great reviews from game critics, including an Editor’s Choice Award from Gaming Illustrated. Borderlands 2 has shipped over five million copies since its release.

This is the third DLC pack for the game. The first package, the Mechromancer Pack, released on Oct. 9. It was originally a pre-order bonus adding a fifth playable character. Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty, released Oct. 16, was the first DLC pack with new campaign content.

If you have not already played Borderlands 2 and are still on the fence about the game, be sure to check out Gaming Illustrated’s Borderlands 2 review.
