    Gearbox Confirms Borderlands 2 Pirate DLC

    Gearbox has now confirmed Borderlands 2’s Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty downloadable content to the Associated Press. The pack will be available on October 16th and “focuses on the one-eyed pirate queen Captain Scarlett and is set amid an expansive desert that features a bandit-filled shanty town called Oasis.”

    The add-on will be available for $10 and is the first of four campaign add-ons that will be released for Borderlands 2. Players can alternately purchase a Season Pass for $29.99, which will offer access to all four add-ons as they’re released. As details below suggested, Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty has players “battling new enemies like sand worms, hovering across the terrain in the new sand skiff vehicle and collecting a new currency called seraph crystals.”

    Original story follows:

    Information on downloadable content for Borderlands 2 has leaked online. Called “Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty,” the pack appears to have been leaked by files included in yesterday’s early release of the Mechromancer class and features new missions, a new rarity color, new loot and more.

    According to a trophy list on PS3trophies.org, three additional Trophies (and presumably achievements) will be included along with the pack: one for completing a mission called “X Marks the Spot,” one for discovering all named locations “in Oasis and the surrounding Pirate's Booty areas,” and one for completing “all Pirate’s Booty side missions.”

    In addition, files from the Steam version of Borderlands 2 have leaked significantly more information. A thread on the official Gearbox forums includes multiple images, showing off a new currency called Seraph Crystal, a new pink item rarity, new head customization options for the game’s original four classes, a new vehicle and a plethora of new items, weapons, enemies and bosses. In addition, a text file on Pastebin allegedly includes all of the Echo dialog from the game. According to one entry, the story of the pack is summed up as follows: “legends speak of Captain Blade's Lost Treasure of the Sands. Of a prize so great that men would turn the sands red in pursuit of it. Of a pirate queen, courageous and deadly, who would stop at nothing to find it. Of a monstrous Leviathan. Of the Vault Hunters who journeyed to the desert town of Oasis, not knowing the horrors that would befall them.”

    For now, the content is unconfirmed, but we’ve reached out to 2K and Gearbox for comment. Previously, rumors suggested that new downloadable content called Torgue could be in the works for Borderlands 2, but it’s unclear if that and Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty are related. Gearbox hasn’t detailed any downloadable content for Borderlands 2, though a Season Pass currently available for purchase indicates that multiple packs will be coming in the future.

    Thanks ADDZ great story find it should be on the main menu this as Borderlands is so popular, all the new stuff looks amazing really excited for all this I can't wait. This is how season pass dlc content should be, released soon after game releases (not 8 months after release when everyones board of it) and loads of content, shame about the only 3 achievements (strange only 3 just like GRFS I hope its not the start of a new trend) that aside this is great stuff and I read somewhere Gearbox said that all four of the future dlc packs are the size of and bigger than Borderlands 1 General Knoxx. Thanks ADDZ +Rep ;)
