Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's $30 Season Pass Gets You Four DLC Packs
Gearbox Software and 2K Australia have announced their post-launch support plans for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
Gearbox Software and 2K Australia have announced their post-launch support plans for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel at their PAX 2014 panel. The Pre-Sequel, which takes place between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, will get four DLC packs that include new characters, missions, and experiences.
You can buy the DLC packs separately at $10 a piece, or get the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Season Pass, which will get all the DLC as it's released for $30 total. The Season Pass does not include the pre-order bonus content for the game, Shock Drop Slaughter Pit, but you will be able to purchase it separately at a later date.
Gearbox and 2K Australia said that they are still busy putting the finishing touches on the main game, but that once they shift focus to the DLC they'll have more details.
During the panel, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said that the team is considering adding Handsome Jack's body double as a playable character. After the crowd's enthusiastic reaction, he said Gearbox is going through with the idea. Pitchford also revealed that playing Telltale's Tales from the Borderlands will unlock content in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
The Pre-Sequel is scheduled for release on October 14 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. It's being developed at 2K Australia with assistance from Gearbox. 2K said that it will consider publishing the game on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 if fans really want it.
