Less than a week after the release of Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty DLC for Borderlands 2, information about the next DLC has already been leaked. According to Eurogamer, the information was leaked thanks to trophies that have been added to the PlayStation 3 version of the game – the same way that information on Captain Scarlett was leaked earlier this month. The DLC, named Mr. Tongue’s Campaign of Carnage, is speculated to be another big campaign mission that will be the second DLC for the game’s Season Pass.
There are three trophies that have been added to the game for Mr. Tongue’s Campaign of Carnage which reveals the objective “Long Way to the Top”, some side missions, and a trophy for collecting hidden pictures of Moxxi – a character who had her own DLC for the first Borderlands. So far, there has been no word from Gearbox about the DLC, so it could be weeks or months before release.
Maybe Gearbox should stop adding new trophies in so soon
Gearbox had confirmed the Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty DLC earlier this month. "You can sense the pirate theme across the landscape, even though there's no water," said Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford. "It's all dried up. It feels more like Tatooine than an ocean. These bandits have really embraced the pirate lifestyle, and there's the legend of a treasure. That kicks off this whole adventure that the players can go on."
Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty is the first major DLC released for Borderlands 2 and will be included in the Season Pass. The DLC by itself is costs $9.99 (around Rs 524), but players can also buy the Season Pass for the game, which includes all four planned major DLCs and costs $29.99 (Rs 1,574 approx).
The Mechromancer DLC was recently released for those of us who hadn’t pre-ordered the game. The DLC contains a new character called Gaige the Mechromancer. Like every other class in the game, Gaige the Mechromancer also has a special ability called Deathtrap, which is a robot she can summon to presumably go on a murderous rampage against her enemies. Her three skill trees are Best Friends Forever, Little Big Trouble and Ordered Chaos. Gearbox has made her skill tree available on the skill calculator so you can get a closer look at her skills.
Gearbox’s role playing shooter might get a release on the PlayStation Vita. In an interview with IGN, head of Gearbox Randy Pitchford said, “If some other studio was capable and could be trusted by us, and by a publishing partner, and by Sony, and someone wanted to invest in making that happen? I think Sony should step up and make that happen”. Pitchford will be meeting with Sony on the matter soon. This could possibly mean a PlayStation Vita version for Borderlands 2. And if we’re making wishes, we could also wish for cross-platform co-op between the PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation 3.
Borderlands 2 is available in retail stores for Rs 999 for the PC version, and Rs 2,499 for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 versions. The PC version of the game is also available on Steam for $59.99 (around Rs 3,100).
