More Borderlands 2 DLC out next week

Halloween-themed Headhunter 1: TK Baha's Bloody Harvest launching October 22 for $3.

More than a year after release, Gearbox Software continues to offer new content for its stylized shooter Borderlands 2. The previously announced Halloween-themed Headhunter 1: TK Baha's Bloody Harvest digital expansion will be released on October 22, 2K Games announced today.

The content, the first of multiple Headhunter add-ons, will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Mac on that day around the world for $2.99 / £2.39 / €2.99.

In TK Baha's Bloody Harvest, players will seek out the pieces of a key that will lead them into the heart of the Pumpkin Kingpin's pumpkin patch where they will battle against the Kingpin himself.

Throughout the DLC, players will find "augmented candy," which will drop from enemies and provide temporary player buffs, ranging from faster movement speed to increased damage.

Details about the next Headhunter expansions will be announced later.

Borderlands 2 originally released in September 2012. It has since shipped over 7 million copies and is on pace to become the highest-selling title in the history of 2K. A Game of the Year Edition was released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on October 8.

this is why I'll be waiting till they're done with DLC to buy it.

Since this was a Halloween themed content, I smell a Christmas DLC comming near the end of the year. It would be really awesome!

Y'all need to quit your whining.  I seem to remember a lot of games, like 'WOW', charging for the game and the charging another MONTHLY fee just so you could play online.  I'm no "kid gamer" either, I play online with my oldest son, 26 and his wife, and my 17 year-old, we have a blast.  If you're done with the game, so be it.  Don't sit there and complain.  OBTW, it's 3 DOLLARS, just skip a Happy Meal, kiddies. As long as they keep producing DLC, I'll keep buying it.

Anyone know what the record is for most DLC released? I have a feeling this game is very close if it doesn't already have it.

They even screw those that were smart enough to wait for the GOTY edition. I'm not interested in Borderlands 2 anymore.

i don't understand.. I love DLC it adds more to the game and can bring a game back to life with more bosses, weapons, and things to do.  You can't just add that stuff to the original game bc it would require too much memory on a xbox dual layer dvd. its also gives us something to look forward to instead of paying $60 for a new game bc your game with no dlc is boring now. If gearbox release another season of dlc i would be buying for both PC and Xbox.


why is it greed when a company makes you pay for their product? i mean, they have to hire ppl to make a game.  when you have employees you have to pay them. I can see someones boss sayin, " I paid you for 40 hours, you should work overtime for free."  LOL

Not all dlc's are going to be the best in the world but it's only 4.99 or $10.00... thats not a lot of money if you have a job.

I didn't like so much Borderlands 2. But Duke Nukem Forever and Aliens Colonial Marines are two of my favorites fps ever. Maybe with this DLC, they can make Borderlands interesting after all.

You know what's funny about these low self-esteem fanboys? They say "just don't buy it then" so we can't complain, but at the same time they say "OH MY GOD, THANK YOU GEARBOX FOR LYING TO US OUT OF GREED. YOU SHOULD DO THIS MORE OFTEN AND OTHERS SHOULD FALL FOR YOUR BULLSHIT."

That's why they don't want us to say anything because they're afraid of us exposing them for the frauds that they are.

It should be free to those who bought GOTY. Also, make Borderlands 2 (along with ALL THE DLC CONTENT) available for Wii U because Aliens CM was so bad that Sega had to cancel the Wii U version. Fucking Gearbox. . .

So is this also exempt from the dlc pass?? Stop buying Gearbox games and let them die in obscurity like they deserve

They already announced when the Dlc's are going to stop. 

I will play the crap out of what comes next but it's nice to know i will have my bl3 in about 2 to 3 years from now.

Borderlands has too much DLC, to be perfectly honest. I haven't even finished the first game, and there are already like 11 DLCs for Borderlands 2. Shit I haven't even installed my Borderlands 2 yet.

Ooooooo, and for only $3.  I'll buy it, for sure.

Let this game die already.  Really without the over the top characters, this game is pretty boring at this point.

Eraldus

@SpookyJack Oh yeah... they've screwed people over what? 5 or 10$? Get a job really you guys... and stop being stingy

@xukxj0nny Uh, because it's not about the god damn money and about the principle of the matter. And no, paying $60 for a game, then spending even more to have the complete experience, is not a good deal.

You make it sound like paying money for a game that has no DLC is a bad thing.

@Diegoctba I feel the exact opposite (Aliens was allright, not as great as Borderlands 2 though). I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinions (Very rare on GameSpot)

@DarkSaber2k Hey 2K is in the same basket of shit too they said they will fund DLC so long as people buy it.

@wexorian remember, they can always release a "legendary" edition like bethesda and include ALL the dlc

@halo-freak If they don't do the moon station DLC I'm gonna hate them forever!!! As you said... it has been practically announced at the ending of the certain DLC!

Eraldus

@GONtheSKYLORD Yes, let the game die because I had enough of it and don't play it anymore and that automatically makes the whole world think exactly like me.


PixelAddict
PixelAddict

@GONtheSKYLORD so go play something else and let the rest of us, who enjoy the game immensely play it.

Because really, what's it to you that the game gets more content?  Do you have some basic need to complain?

@pound-u @xukxj0nny Wait, you want to charge me for fries to eat with my Big Mac?  I should be able to get those for free!  It's part of the entire Big Mac Experience!  You shouldn't sell fries at all, you bastards!

Eraldus

@pound-u @xukxj0nny Explain to me how adding additional OPTIONAL content to a an awesome game is a bad thing?

xukxj0nny
xukxj0nny

@pound-u @xukxj0nny Principle of the matter? whats the matter with more game? the complete experience is the $60 game. The DLC is extra content, Uh, more achievements, more maps, missions, and weapons.  Sounds like a great deal to me. I wouldn't want a game that had no dlc. I'm not tryin to argue here or nothing.. but I don't see why ppl are against it, if its not about the money, then either buy it or don't. Disk's that games are on do not have unlimited storage.

halo-freak
halo-freak

@Shinteikun @halo-freak So many chances for Easter eggs! Halo, Star wars, star trek, battlestar, Starcraft, mass effect etc etc. Too bad we know for certain it aint gonna be big. Oh well they can save the rest for bl3 i guess.

@xukxj0nny Thank you for proving you don't actually get it. It's not about being entitles. Try not being an idiot, how about that? Or is that too god damned difficult for you pathetic apologists?

*BREAKING NEWS* Nothing in life is free. Unless you are part of this entitled to everything generation, then I want it all to be given to me, NOW!

@the_repo_man6754  Looks like you and the other guy can go play some other game... while the rest of us enjoy Borderlands 2.

There are few enough games where I play 100 hours.  This is one of them.  Move along, troll boy.
