One week ago, Gearbox Software revealed a third downloadable add-on was in the works for the studio's double-platinum action RPG Borderlands. Without revealing a name, a member of the development staff did say the expansion would raise the game's current level 50 cap and also be the "biggest" downloadable content yet.
Today, Gearbox named the expansion, which will be called The Secret Armory of General Knoxx. As the name implies, the expansion will focus on providing players with new weapons, presumably from the weapons locker of the aforementioned military officer. Gearbox said the add-on's quests will be geared at players level 34 to 50 but did not give a release date or price for the new content.
Two shots accompanying the announcement indicated that General Knoxx is likely a commander of the Crimson Lance, the elite corporate army featured in the latter levels of the original game. One shot shows that the already heavily armed Lance troopers will be backed up by full-blown mechs with thick armor and nasty ranged and melee weapons. Another screen shows players driving a new type of vehicle: a six-wheeled off-road truck battling what appear to be giant spiders in the desert.
