2K Games and Gearbox Software have been clear about the ambitions of downloadable content for their fast-selling new property Borderlands, saying that they hope to release a number of add-ons for the game. In November, the first of those expansions arrived for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in the form of The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned. However, little has been heard about the status of the PC launch of the Borderlands expansion.
That changed this week, though, as Gearbox has released the PC version of The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned. Those who picked up the retail edition of Borderlands can buy the add-on pack for $9.99 through Gearbox's Web site. Versions of the game purchased through digital distribution services, such as Steam, can find the add-on through their respective channels.
The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned will feature undead opponents aplenty, accidentally created by the titular doctor. Players will join up with the semimad scientist to track down his creations, which are running amok in a new region the DLC adds to the game, Jakobs Cove. The new area will also be infested with were-skags, which are fearsome cousins of the aggressive scaled creatures that infest the planet Pandora, the game's setting.
