It's that time of the month again, with information on the next DLC for Borderlands 2 being leaked. Just like the last two times, information on the DLC, titled Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt, was leaked via trophy names in the latest Borderlands 2 patch. Soon after the leak, developer Gearbox confirmed the DLC to Polygon.
There isn't much information that was revealed through the trophies though, other than the name of the DLC and the existence of trophies for completing some missions. The trophies mention hunting side missions, discovering 'named locations' and the 'Fall of Nakayama”.
Getting a third DLC
Here is what Gearbox said about the DLC: “There are still two add-on campaigns scheduled to release as part of the Borderlands 2 Season Pass and we are really looking forward to sharing news about our third add-on campaign and other downloadable content soon. A recent update addresses many of the issues brought to our attention by the community, including a fix to restore lost Badass Rank. Full details of this patch are available at support.gearboxsoftware.com and further updates are in the works. Thank you to all the gamers who took the time to contact us and provide feedback about their experiences. 2K and Gearbox have some of the most passionate fans in the world and it's their passion that drives our team to keep improving Borderlands 2.”
Back in November, Gearbox had released the Mr Torgue's Campaign of Carnage DLC alongside a trailer that showed some of the aspects of the DLC. The trailer shows many of the new features making their way into the game. The DLC features new zones with new quests and revolves around a tournament that Mr Torgue is holding. The aim of the tournament seems to be to find the most badass person in all of Pandora. The game also features new weapons, and one major character from the first game – Mad Moxxi – is making her comeback.
Gearbox had earlier confirmed the DLC through a tweet on a fake Twitter account for Mr Torgue. “Are you badass enough to survive 'Mister Torgue's Campaign of Carnage?” read the tweet. “I'm legit curious cause I dunno you that well.” The account later added, “here's a picture of me throwin up the horns like a badass.”
The price for the DLC is the same as that of the previous DLC – Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty. The DLC will cost 800 Microsoft Points or $9.99 (approximately Rs 546), depending on the platform you buy it on. The release date will be announced by Gearbox in a few days.
The information had been leaked in October thanks to three trophies that had been added to the game for Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, which reveals the objective “Long Way to the Top”, some side missions and a trophy for collecting hidden pictures of Moxxi – a character who had her own DLC for the first Borderlands.
Borderlands 2 is available in retail stores for Rs 999 for the PC version, and Rs 2,499 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions. The PC version of the game is also available on Steam for $59.99 (around Rs 3,100). The DLCs for the game are available on Steam, Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.
