Yarr! Who’d’ve thunk that pirates woulda been included in a Borderlands game! Not sure why they thought a British woman would fit the part, Scarlett would probably be better being French or something.
“We’re so excited at how the Borderlands 2 experience continues to grow with Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty and the fifth playable character class, the Mechromancer,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “With hours of new story-driven content to play through and an entirely new character to play as, gamers are getting a lot of additional value. The really exciting part is that we’re just getting started.”
“The love we’ve felt for Borderlands 2 is driving us wild and ever since we completed development of the main game, we have been fired up about creating great, new content to expand the experience,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “I am thrilled to announce the release of Borderlands 2’s first additional player character, Gaige the Mechromancer, delivered ahead of schedule. I’m also incredibly excited about Captain Scarlett and her Pirates’ Booty, which is an all-new grand adventure for Borderlands 2 and the first of a four-part season full of big, original campaign expansions.”
Captain Scarlett and the Pirate’s Booty is the first of four add-on content campaigns for Borderlands 2. These four add-on content campaigns will be available individually or as a combined purchase of the Borderlands 2 Season Pass. This special offer, available now, includes nearly $40.00 of add-on content and is available for $29.99 (PlayStation Network) / 2400 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE online entertainment network) / $29.99 (Windows PC). Once purchased, the Borderlands 2 Season Pass enables gamers to download all of the announced add-on content campaigns as they become available on the PlayStation®Network, Xbox LIVE and Windows PC. All four add-on content campaigns are scheduled to be available by June 2013.
The season pass is around £20 in UK dolla.
