Christmas DLC coming to Borderlands 2 next week

How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day will feature a fight with a giant snowman and new unlockables.

by

A third Headhunter DLC pack for Borderlands 2, How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day, will be released on December 17.

The DLC will be released across all of the game's platforms--PC, Mac, Xbox 360, and PS3--for $2.99/£2.39/€2.99, and will contain a Christmassy mission alongside an unlockable head and skin for each character.

The new mission is set in a town called Gingerton, which is nestled snugly in the snowy area of Frost Bottom. The area also features a carol-singing bandit, christmas trees, and a rampaging monster snowman called Mister Tinder Snowflake.

Defeating Mister Tinder Snowflake unlocks the character head, with a unqiue expression for each class, alongside unique costumes: Salvador gets a Santa outfit, for instance, whereas Krieg has to make do with a gaudy sweater.

How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day follows Thanksgiving-themed Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler and the Halloween-based TK Baha’s Bloody Harvest. Gearbox Software says it will have more Borderlands 2 Headhunter DLC content to talk about in the new year.

Another game set in the Borderlands universe, an adventure series developed by Telltale Games, was announced at the weekend.

STAHP Gearbox! Enough is enough. Having purchased the GOTY edition, I'm a little pissed that they keep releasing DLCs for this game.

I'm looking forward to this. I've liked the first two headhunter packs.

They just cann't resist to milk their customers can they? even after releasing the GOTY edition. Then what is the purpose of GOTY?

My wish would be BL2 coming to PS4\XB1 next week.  Merry Christmas indeed.

If you've seen BL2 with all the latest patches on new nvidia HW, then it makes total sense.  The PS4 & XB1 could both handle a port of the PC version.


I think the issue is that pretty much the entire audience that WILL play BL2 already has done so.

@Pyrosa yeah that's probably true. I played BL2 at launch, pawned it. I'd maybe get an X1 version if it had all DLCs, and I do mean ALL DLCs. GOTY bullshit that doesn't include all the DLCs what is that all about?
