As you may already know (due to this being a catch-up post), 2K Games announced that a fourth add-on was coming soon which ties in great with the recent sale on Steam in which it was possible to buy Borderlands and all the downloadable content for under £12.
“A year ago Borderlands was an untested brand that through hard work and a lot of passion, turned out to be one of the best-selling, claptastic and skagtacular games we have ever created,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “A year later, we are releasing our fourth DLC installment, Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution, which illustrates our enthusiasm for creating highly entertaining content that enhances a franchise. In addition to serving as the perfect bookend to the original game, what gamer doesn’t love a kung-fu-wielding Ninja Assassin Claptrap with nunchuck skills?”
Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution invites single-player and co-op fans back to try to suppress a deadly Claptrap revolution using one of four infamous vault hunters. The foursome find themselves caught in the crosshairs of a deadly civil war between the Hyperion Corporation’s well-armed armadas and the ever-amassing army of homicidal Claptraps led by one of the most eagerly awaited characters in the franchise’s history – the cunning Ninja Assassin. As vault hunters, players must put aside their past differences with the Hyperion Corporation, namely the organization’s repeated attempts to wipe them from existence. For a hefty payday, they will join forces to help beat down the mechanical uprising and thwart the dastardly kung-fu expert, the Claptrap known only as Ninja Assassin.
There’s a whole load of stuff packed into the DLC which includes ten more skill points that puts your level up to 71, twenty new missions should keep you busy for some time and if you’re wondering how you’ll be able to carry any new and better weapons, three more backpack slots should help keep you stocked up.
The previous add-ons are still available, obviously since the game is still selling fairly well on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Games for Windows. The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot and The Secret Armory of General Knoxx can be bought for 800 MS Points on the Xbox Live Marketplace and £6.29 for the PlayStation 3 and PC, Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution will cost the same.
