For all the hate cast towards Gearbox for their mismanagement of the Aliens franchise, you have to appreciate all the effort they’ve put in to making Borderlands 2 a better, bigger game. Season pass holders have already been treated to 3 bits of expansive campaign DLC (two of which weren’t rubbish!) – and soon, there will be a fourth.
Coming on June 25 is a new DLC bolt-on featuring everybody’s favourite ebonics-spewing, explosives-obsessed teenage miscreant, Tiny Tina in “Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep.”
Played as a meta-game, the DLC will see you, the Vault hunter playing a board game against the Vault Hunters of old, with the ebullient miscreant as the game’s Dungeon Master. sounds neat…and geeky. And with Tiny Tina involved, possibly just a tad racist.
Here’s a little teaser of the DLC that IGN captured at PAX East this year. It’s out on all platforms on June 25, and will cost $9.99 (800 Microsoft clown coins). It will also be free to season pass holders.
I recently fell in love with Borderlands 2 all over again, after a brief stint of hating the hell out of its first DLC, the terribly dull, pirate-themed expansion, Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty. I’m looking quite forward to returning to Pandora to loot-and-shoot for what must be the millionth time.
