A third Headhunter DLC pack for Borderlands 2, How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day, will be released on December 17.

The DLC will be released across all of the game's platforms--PC, Mac, Xbox 360, and PS3--for $2.99/£2.39/€2.99, and will contain a Christmassy mission alongside an unlockable head and skin for each character.

The new mission is set in a town called Gingerton, which is nestled snugly in the snowy area of Frost Bottom. The area also features a carol-singing bandit, christmas trees, and a rampaging monster snowman called Mister Tinder Snowflake.

Defeating Mister Tinder Snowflake unlocks the character head, with a unqiue expression for each class, alongside unique costumes: Salvador gets a Santa outfit, for instance, whereas Krieg has to make do with a gaudy sweater.

How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day follows Thanksgiving-themed Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler and the Halloween-based TK Baha’s Bloody Harvest. Gearbox Software says it will have more Borderlands 2 Headhunter DLC content to talk about in the new year.

Another game set in the Borderlands universe, an adventure series developed by Telltale Games, was announced at the weekend.
