Get ready for some plundering next week.

     In an recent interview with the Associated Press, Gearbox President Randy Pitchford revealed the latest DLC expansion Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty and announced that it will be released on Oct. 16. Players will be exploring a new area of Pandora, an expansive desert wasteland that was once a beautiful resort called Oasis, now a Bandit-filled Scanty town. Players will get to face new enemies, such as pirate bandits and sand worms, meet new characters, ride on the new sand skiff vehicle, collect a new currency called Seraph Crystals, battle new Raid Bosses, and embark on a journey to find Captain Scarlett's secret treasures.

The DLC will be available for $10 when it gets released, or if you have the season pass (which is $30), then this DLC will come as part of the Pass.


I'm was a bit surprised to hear that the first major expansion for Borderlands 2 would be coming out the day the Mechromancer was originally supposed to be released on. To learn about what we could expect to see in this expansion makes me want to get this now, such as the new weapons that will be available, the new currency (seraph crystals), which I figured we'll know what that will be used for later on, the new vehicle (A Sand Skiff), and new raid bosses. I still need to get me a season pass at some point, though, in order to fully enjoy the rest of the game. Also, is it me, or does it look like there's a couple of Star Wars references to be found in this expansion?


What do you think of Gearbox releasing this next week? Will you be getting this expansion? Leave your comments down in the bottom. Don't Forget to Vote and Share, and don't be a JIMMY!!
