It was not mentioned what the four DLC offerings for Borderlands 2 would consist of, but Gearbox said additional details will be shared at a later date. The developer is holding an "Inside Gearbox Software" panel at PAX Prime this Sunday, where studio head Randy Pitchford and others will discuss Borderlands 2, as well as Aliens: Colonial Marines, and its other franchises.

Borderlands 2 will join a host of other big-name games in offering a DLC season pass. These include Max Payne 3, Gears of War 3, Saints Row: The Third, L.A. Noire, and UFC Undisputed 3.

Borderlands 2--due out September 18--is the sequel to 2009's well-received loot-based co-op shooter. A recent game guide writer's playthrough of the title took 58 hours, with Gearbox calling the game a "hobby." For more on the title, check out GameSpot's latest preview.
