About this time last month, Gearbox Software announced that it was prepping a third add-on for its 3-million-unit-selling Borderlands, an expansion the studio promised would be its "biggest" yet. 2K Games didn't give gamers much of a heads-up on an exact date, saying today that The Secret Armory of General Knoxx will be available on Xbox Live tomorrow. The PlayStation 3 and PC release will follow this Thursday, February 25.
Like the critically welcomed Zombie Island of Dr. Ned and the welcomed critically Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot add-ons, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx will cost $9.99 (MSP800). Gearbox claims the add-on offers nearly double the amount of content packed into Zombie Island. Included in the package will be a new class of high-end weapons, a level-cap increase to 61, a new vehicle that seats up to four, nearly 30 new villain types, and tweaked AI.
The Secret Armory of General Knoxx will also include a new storyline that picks up immediately after the events in the original game. As detailed in GameSpot's first look at the DLC, players find themselves being hunted by the Atlas Corporation. Of course, this kind of affront isn't to be taken lying down, and players will team up with a former Atlas employee named Athena to take the fight to the corporation.
