2K Games and Gearbox Software announced today that Borderlands 2 will offer four brand new add-on content campaigns following its release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC on September 18th.
These four add-on content campaigns will each feature several hours of gameplay and introduce new adventures, allies, enemies and environments. They will retail individually for $9.99 or 800 MS Points or gamers can purchase the Borderlands 2 Season Pass for $29.99 or 2400 MS Points, which will grant access to all four of these add-on content campaigns as they become commercially available. All four add-on content campaigns are scheduled to be available between September 18th, 2012 and June 2013.
Those who pre-order Borderlands 2 from participating retailers will gain access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, allowing 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.
For those who do not pre-order Borderlands 2, the Mechromancer will be available for purchase at a later date. The Mechromancer character class and other pre-order items are not included in the Borderlands 2 Season Pass.
Borderlands 2 will be available in North America on September 18th, 2012, and internationally on September 21st, 2012.
