Gearbox confirms next downloadable add-on to double-platinum RPG/FPS hybrid will raise level cap, be larger than the previous two DLCs.
With reviewers, Borderlands' downloadable content record currently stands at 1-0-1. The first add-on to the acclaimed "role-playing shooter," The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, was a hit with critics--who weren't quite as hot on DLC number two, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot.
Now comes word that Gearbox Software's plan to regularly update Borderlands with DLC is moving ahead full steam. In a post on the game's official forums, level designer Jason Reiss revealed that the Dallas-area developer is readying a third-add-on for the game--which will be its largest yet.
"This is the biggest DLC we have made," declared Reiss after teasing, "Level cap increase anyone?" He offered neither a release date nor a reveal date, saying only, "Hopefully we can get a full announcement out to you guys soon."
Even without the new expansion, Borderlands has exceeded industry expectations. After being written off by top analysts as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 cannon fodder, the all-new property proved to be an international hit. As of December, it had sold more than 2 million units worldwide, according to publisher Take-Two Interactive--which is grooming it to be a "major franchise."
watch this:http://www.destructoid.com/-secret-armory-of-general-knoxx-borderlands-dlc-revealed-161891.phtml its called secret armory of general knoxx and its for higher level and possibly increased level caps, also there are new vehicles
Considering all of the cheats and hackers in CoD: MW2, I think Borderlands is a far superior game. And considering how Gearbox/Take 2 are supporting Borderlans, MW2 is just another also ran.
Sweet. My fav. game of last year so I'm personally def. game for the biggest dlc yet, esp. if it can at least be as good as zombie island.
@ Vodoo It was not pulled from the game. It's basically an arena and a storage device. The storage device was begged for by players since day one, and the arena is just gearbox's rip of horde mode. And for people saying this game is worth it...yes, for consoles. No for PC. Pc version is lowest on the list of priorities and is just a badly done port from the consoles.
I read that the Underdome Riot was just an arena... Who the heck would pay just to play an arena?!! That was clearly something that was held back from the original game or they couldn't fit into the story at the time. Now people aren't gonna trust their dlc. Maybe we will know because we read reviews online, but most people don't and after spending money on that last dlc, they're prolly not gonna waste any more on it.
I have to add my voice to everyone who says this game is worth 60 bucks. No doubt about it. GET THIS GAME!
I would say that this is one of the best bang for your buck game that many of us can play. I did all the quest on the regular game and spent a long time each night working those quests out and had fun doing it. The only real bad aspect of this game is that is is repetitive by design. If the devs could find a way to modify a bit a of that repetitivness then the game should shine even more. I am all for more of this game!
Personally, I found the original game to be rather complete, I never really ran into issues. Using the PS3 there were a few hiccups but other than that, I can't think of a single glaring glitch....
Yeah right. Biggest as in most glitches yet!!!! I wouldnt buy this or any other Borderlands DLC after the Underdome Riot. I loved this game until I read the negative reviews on it. Who would want to play it for 3 hours and it glithches out so you cant even finish it. Then when you exit the Dome, you lose all your 3rd playthrough high end weapon, mods. Yeah they say they fixed it. But its already too late for the ones before the patch. Why bother with this newest one. Why do players support developers who charge you 60 bucks for an unfinished game. Do they not test things anymore? This is a growinf problem. I will stick to my PS3 only games. Not saying they arent with problems, but they are nothing like multiple platform games!!
That was a pretty lame article..I loved this game, but I do need breaks from it. I go between this, L4D2, CoDMW2 and Plants vs Zombies.. ;)
Wash rinse and repeat. - Got Milk. Already traded game in, it was bad enough of a grind to play the first time, let alone they expect you to play it all over again to get to level 50. - It was fun for a while, I'll give them that.
Thanks a lot for reminding me about this game. I thought I had gotten it out of my system, but now I gotta go start playing again.
I've been meaning to buy Borderlands for a while but i think my friends are over it by now so i'll think i'll just miss it.
I bought the Dr. Ned DLC but i never really played the game that much after i bought it. Not going to bother with the Mad Moxxi though not played the game since.
I'd love to see an expansion that somehow continues from the current story in some way, with a twist to the ending which seemed to be unpopular with a lot of players.
I had just bought Borderlands and my ps3 got the YLOD for the 4th time, now i have to wait ages for it to get back from sony australia and i can only sit here and watch vids of borderlands, also if u wanna add me on psn my psn id is my name.
Don't care, won't be buying it. DRM on top of Steam and a 30% mark-up (on Steam) in Australia over the US means 2K and Gearbox can go to hell.
Hopefully these game companies are taking notice. The most popular games are multi-player games like Borderlands, Left 4 Dead 2 and Modern Warfare. I'm guessing these types of games are not easy to design though.
looking forward to a bundled expansion. hdd is almost full and i have dial up :[ really need a weapon bank though.
This is great news! Heres hoping in time there will be a DLC megapak released in the stores for us internet purchasing weary types. Plus i always prefer a hardcopy..hard like Bricks fist on a raiders smashed brain matter in BERSERK! mode. Oh i forgot something...RARRGHHH!!!!
i wish they add a "join game to dlc" option because currently its very hard to find hosts in dlc cause of the plot mission info is always at the main game
I really enjoyed this game and bought both DLCs. However, I really wish they would focus on a way to get the rampant modding out of the game, because in my opinion it has destroyed it. I can't even consider buying this third one because I can't see going back in to the game with people griefing players by firing 100 rockets at once and other absurdly over powered weapons, as well as people with unbreakable shields because they used the cash/sheild mod to jack it up to infinity. I really hope they fix this for the sequel and keep these jackasses that insist on modding everything out of the game.
Don't get me wrong, this is good. But I don't see why people are going "finally, developers are maintaining a game". You're paying for all these updates, of course they're maintaining it. You know it's bad when people can't tell the difference between what DLC used to be and what expansion packs are.
Borderlands is an amazing game, im glad they have yet another DLC in store for us, keep them coming plz
Nice good to see continued support and someone actually backing up promises made! Havn't maxed out my character yet and was hoping Mad Moxxi would give exp....this DLC hopefully will erase that bad taste out of my mouth!
@jadefury17, sicklysunstorm, thats nothing i have a shot gun that does over 1500 dmg and a revolver that does over 600!...plus my beloved rocket launcher 1800 dmg
" Okay, time to search for some dirty mags in the dump.... HOLY SWEET LUCIFER ON A UNICYCLE!! 780 DAMAGE AWESOME WOO!! "
