Borderlands Claptrap DLC rolling out

Gearbox's shoot-and-loot title expands again with New Robot Revolution starring quirky monoped for $10 this September.

by

Gearbox Software's Pandora, the home planet in Borderlands, is a popular place for gamers to visit…but it's now facing a revolution.

2K Games and Gearbox today announced the fourth downloadable expansion pack for the shoot-and-loot sci-fi game. Dubbed Claptrap New Robot Revolution, the content thrusts players into a civil war between the Hyperion Corporation and the Claptraps, led by the elusive Ninja Assassin.

The Robot Revolution downloadable content adds new missions and enemies--including Claptrap-ified monsters--to shoot and loot, as well as new boss battles. Additionally, the content lets gamers earn an additional 10 skill points and three supplementary backpack slots for holstering more weapons.

Viva la Robolution!

This fourth downloadable expansion follows previously released Borderlands content Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, and The Secret Armory of General Knoxx.

Claptrap New Robot Revolution will arrive on Xbox Live, the PlayStation Network, and Windows PC this September priced at 800 Microsoft points or $9.99. For more on the series, check out GameSpot's review.

Just finished getting all the achievements for all the dlc, so I can't wait until this additional content rolls out. Let's just hope for no more Underdome type DLC, I couldn't handle anymore of that! lol

Looking forward to it, hope they release more DLC for a great game. Oh and a GOTEY style re-release

Can't wait for this! Borderlands is the best co-op game this gen in my opinion.

@ jad206 I played the game alone. I assume you played co-op?

Borderlands is my favorite party game right now, and has been for a while. It's just ridiculously fun to play with friends. Since I beat the single-player story this will be a good reason to go back to playing it regularly, and not just with friends.

I just hope this DLC isn't hard on memory. Borderlands DLC use a lot of memory for some reason.

Why does this talk about the new dlc and have a video of Knoxx. :l @alert0 Hard?...I WISH Knoxx was hard. It was in no way, shape, or form hard. I want harder.

Like most, I found Claptraps annoying after awhile. But I still find them overall cute. Alright, I'll get the expansion xD

Knoxx's Armory was already too tough to solo, I hope they won't do the same with the fourth expansion

I really hope they're gonna improve the loot system in co-op, this game has a lot of potential but seriously needs some work on details.

@jad206 - yeah, I don't have a problem with Underdome at all. Just out of the three DLCs, I like it the least. It's still good though. I've beat it with all four classes and several other times helping others get the achievements.

Pfft. Even the armory felt kind of bland with the repetitive enemies. I hope the sequel will have more varied locations and enemies.

I picked up zombie island and the secret armory when they were half off, but lost my saves so I had to start from scratch. Luckily alittle time away eased some of my burnout. Have to wait and see about this DLC though

I got burned out after finishing the main game, and trying to do a 2nd playthru, then installing Secret Armory, and not finishing that either. I'll jump back in for the inevitable Borderlands 2.

@jl0pez The borderlands GotY edition only comes with the 1st 3 DLC @PixelAddict It was good, beside the fact that is broke the rest of the game. @ogio2003 Underdome is the best DLC once you hit level 61

DUDE! Nice - I can't wait. @BlackForestHam - you are correct, Gen Knoxx was such an amazing add-on. HOURS of content (and a story that might be better than the game itself).

Who here thought that general knoxx was one of the best deals on the marketplace!? Hopefully this can live up to that dlc because it was awesome!
