We’re a game in, a new character most likely capped by now and a ton of golden keys used in the pursuit of happiness and head explosions. What’s next for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel? Why, a return to the arenas of death and carnage it would seem.
Some new achievements for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel have leaked from Xbox Achievements, which suggest that the game will be dipping into its own Circle of Slaughter quests, via The Holodome. See for yourself below:
If this one pans out to be true, this will account for 75% of the revealed DLC so far: Jack’s Doppleganger DLC character, the Holodome itself and Aurelia the Baroness. This isn’t the first time that Borderlands has released a more arena-centric expansion that operates on Thunderdome rules wherein many, many bandits enter and only one vault hunter leaves. Way back when the original Borderlands was released, the second DLC expansion introduced fan favourite character Mad Moxxi and the Underdome, which was balls-to-the-wall difficult if you weren’t playing with friends.
Now that a couple of years have passed since then, I’m digging the idea of a brand new dome within which to murder moon-bandits. Everybody playing is undoubtedly far more connected now than they were in 2009. Bring on the social fun I say. Because truly, nothing beats a night of Borderlands arena missions coupled with alcohol.
