Borderlands 2 DLC news tomorrow

Gearbox president says company will announce new downloadable content for shooter at PAX Australia on July 20.

by

Gearbox Software will announce new Borderlands 2 downloadable content tomorrow at PAX Australia, president Randy Pitchford has said on Twitter.

Pitchford did not give any details regarding what will be included in the forthcoming DLC pack. Earlier this month, he confirmed new DLC for Borderlands 2, saying during a podcast, "We've got more stuff in the hopper that we're planning and getting pretty excited about."

Previously released Borderlands 2 expansions include Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, Captain Scarlett and Her Captain's Booty, Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage, and Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt.

These expansions are available as part of the $30 Borderlands 2 Season Pass or individually for $10 each. It is not clear what the new content will cost or when it will be released.

Got milk? Man, Gearbox are getting really lazy. " Hey, should we make another Bordelands game?"  - R.P. " No,no money! We still have to give Sega back those $60 million we stole from them. Just keep making DLC's."

I'm happy they're making more DLC, but I wish I woulda' bought the season pass.

This news is irritating. People (like me) paid for the seasons pass, I think that is enough. I really don't see why they need more DLC. It's been milked now, so stop. Just make BL3 and focus on that.

I find it pretty disappointing that I don't get everything with the season pass.... I call shenanigans.

Tiny Tina is really good, i found it to be more enjoyable than the main campaign!!! It's so well written and funny.

Got seriously bored with this game after the 2nd DLC. Never completed Hammerlock and haven't even downloaded Tiny Tina and I paid for the Season Pass. I just don't like how they've done this one. The first game was set up much better. This one is just tedious. And having to go through the game 3 times with each character to get to the max loot is just a pain. No thanks.

GEARBOX - Borderlands 2 is an Infuriatingly Boring Chore!---------------  Fix the poor leveling system,,,,,, make the AI do something else besides stand there and get shot for a hour while i die in two shots after level up for 200 hrs,,,,,,,, Add back in Legendary and Pearlscent Weapons so players have some to play with and play for......Put guns you can actually buy in vending machines with the money you pick up that you have made worthless.....,,.... Then ill buy any decent DLC  :)

I thought Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep was supposed to be the last DLC for Borderlands 2. I wonder how much content they cut from the game to sell back to you later. I guess with even more DLC, I will be waiting even longer for the Borderlands 2 Game Of The Year edition also known as simply Borderlands 2.

I have all the dlc, got the season pass for 10 bucks the other day.  The ultimate vault hunter should be called the ultimate want to punch your screen hunter.  Used an entire load out and ammo to kill 15 baddies.  What do they have...millions up million of hit points?

Really?  So I'm going to have to wait even longer to buy the GOTY edition?  You're not doing a very good job of parting me from my money.

Hells yeah! Keep em coming, I love a new reason to visit the Borderlands.

DLC done right! Give us a game you can easily sink 50+ hours into, and if we enjoy all that, I have the opportunity to lengthen the longevity of my original purchase. I'm happy to give more of my money to a company that does good work.

Gearbox specifically stated they were going to nerf drop rates through a series of updates. This is why you get nothing from playing anymore, but can readily purchase legendary weapons for 100 $.

@dragonkantus I don't think there will be a GOTY or final edition. I've noticed that since "season passes" came along games don't get a GOTY or platinum hits version. I think right around the time Gears of War 3 came out and then Assassins Creed 3. I have not bought a season pass for any games yet but I think Season passes are the publishers way of handling the huge frustration most have for bleed you dry DLC. I think for PC games this has come into play as well but I think PC exclusive games may be the only games in the future that have a final edition with all the DLC included and even that may not be the case. I could go on but most gamers have made up their minds already one way or the other about DLC and how much they will spend.

@Poison-tooth  

Agreed poison-tooth.  They can keep making DLC forever for all I care; It keeps extending the life of the game exponentially (at least, for me it does).  There certainly is quite a lot of whining about the DLC.

@Dasim64 Dragon Keep is the best one by far! You're missing out.

Everything you said is already in the game... I have a few pearlescent s and legendary weapons.

@XspidervenomX  Why all the crying? Stop playing the game if your so bored with it. The DLC is for the hardcore players that still enjoy the game after playing it since September. Btw you can buy one of the best legionaries from Torgue CC DLC vending machine imo, the DP unkempt harold. Sounds to me like you don't know where to find the best guns at lvl 50 to help you level through UVHM. Look up best builds for your class and play with other people and you should do fine.

@Butt_Chunx I too was waiting for a game of the year addition but on the currrent steram sale i got everything bar this upcoming content for under 40

@Butt_Chunx Basically dude,, this is why they nerfed the loot so bad,, so you keep buying DLC looking for it.  ..,,.. Follow the money

Hey man, don't you like playing for 200 hours leveling up to be so powerful and having such poor weapons that it takes a million dollars to kill a skag that keeps re-spawning?

@Apastron Steam sale.  Season pass was 10 bucks yesterday.  And a few days before that.

XspidervenomX

So chests now have a bunch of green pistols, bosses drop nothing, loot midgets drop useless relics, vending machines sell you the white weapons you've been avoiding since you started the game, you collect money to pay for dieing in two shots after leveling up for 200 hours,,, but is free if you don't have any money, ,,,, so now we shoot a skag with 75 rockets and have to call it fun..

@darkmatter00 @dragonkantus i would prefer a one purchase full game.  but barring that, which is more and more often these days, id usually get the goty/ultimate/complete editions and those are going out of style faster than the current gen... at least in terms of GS.

@leviathanwing @MAD_AI  

The season pass said what it would include when it came out.  It didn't say "This will cover everything, ever" and it never even implied as much.

@penguino522  

I agree with FTCPyro.  All this complaining.... just play something else and let those of us that enjoy it continue to do so.  I know it's all opinion.... but I don't see why so many people have soured on Borderlands 2.  The Borderlands games are (to me) the perfect mix of FPS and RPG..... with INSANE replay value due to 4 chars. in B1 and 6 in B2 with wildly different skill trees.  I just hope all this rapid souring doesn't make Gearbox decide to ax Borderlands 3 and start with some other IP

@XspidervenomX I love it!!!!  At least I only spent 10 bucks.  Sucks for those that paid full price.

@Riddick123 The current season pass is only for the four campaign modes and Ultimate Vault Hunter mode. There was another news story stating that Gearbox is going to have a second season pass for more DLC.

@XspidervenomX This is what we like to call cheap programming. It was as basic and soft as it was to begin with. Its just a bigger bowl of the same shitty soup. If you can finish the soup just as fast as before, then you will question your purchase. So you get the illusion of a change that was made without anything being changed. Just different numbers being crunched for 10 bucks apiece. "lawl these new enemies are so hard!" Ditch this bullshit.

Dude, this the fifth almost identical comment you've posted in an hour and a half bitching about loot drops. Say something new or let it go

@pound-u @darkmatter00 @dragonkantus I hate season passes as well. I really would love if they released goty/platinum hits/ complete editions again but it seems the industry loves making you download extras. I really hate that they think everyone has 1 Gbps fiber optic connections to their homes so its not even an issue that DLC can end up taking away the time that you could be playing the games. We need a better balance.

@brxricano @XspidervenomX and lets remove the Legendary and Pearlscent weapons so players keep playing looking for something that isn't there....Well maybe if you buy this DLC you will get something,,,nooo, ok maybe this DLC,,noo sorry, try this DLC,, got ya again,,try this DLC....

XspidervenomX

@brxricano @XspidervenomX Thats it dude. Their business model is, "lets make it so players level up for 200 hours, make em so weak they die in two shots, and make the AI do nothing else but stand there and take 2 millions dollars worth of shots" yeh will call it hard.....Its very cheap.

@XspidervenomX @Muradin_2  

Seriously dude: shut up.  You keep saying THE SAME THING.  (thanks for pointing that out Muradin.... I actually thought different people were saying it until you pointed that out.)   You got your point out there the first time.  We get it.  You can do something else now.  Mission accomplished.  We know you hate the game.

@Muradin_2 Its great you have the day to waste sitting here commenting about commenting. well done man.


Yeah the loot sucks and each post i made is different but is related to Borderlands 2, so...thanks for keeping an eye on things
