2K Games and Gearbox Software have announced that Borderlands 2 will offer four brand new add-on content campaigns following its release for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. The four add-on content campaigns each offer several hours of game play, introducing new adventures, allies, enemies and environments.
They each retail for $9.99, about 800 Microsoft Points. For players who intend on purchasing all campaigns, the Borderlands 2 Season Pass, available September 18 for $29.99 or 2400 Microsoft points, will grant players access to all four campaigns as they become available by June 2013.
Gamers who pre-order Borderlands 2 from participating retailers will also gain access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, which allows them to download the Gearbox Gun Pack, a Golden Key, the Vault Hunter’s Relic and an all-new fifth character class, the Mechromancer.
The Gearbox Gun Pack is a collection of unique guns to help players begin their journey on Pandora. The Golden Key is used to unlock a rare in-game item in the mysterious Golden Loot Chest found in the town of Sanctuary. The Vault Hunter’s Relic is an in-game item that boosts players’ gear-hunting fortune while playing solo or teaming up with friends. The Mechromancer character class will be available following the launch of Borderlands 2 once development of the character is complete.
If you aren’t pre-ordering Borderlands 2, you can still buy The Mechromancer at a later date.
The Mechromancer character class and other preorder items are not included in the Borderlands 2 Season Pass.
Borderlands 2 will be available in North America on September 18, 2012, and internationally on September 21, 2012. Borderlands 2 is rated M for Mature.
