DLC is coming to Borderlands before the end of the year, though the premise of the first expansion may not be all that creative.
2K Games has released details on the first DLC expansion pack coming to Gearbox's Borderlands. Borderlands is a shweet looking co-op shoot-and-loot (I'm trademarking that) coming to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC later this month.
Borderlands' first expansion is called The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned. It features an island called Jacobs Cove, with zombies on it, and a guy named Dr. Ned. Okay, there's a bit more to it than that: Dr. Ned was supposed to protect the island's inhabitants, but he seems to have gone a few steps too far into the deep end, and has made them into zombies to keep them alive instead. Zombies are notoriously hard to control, and now players must work with Dr. Ned to cure the inhabitants of Jacobs Cove, while killing as many of them as possible and looting lots of guns presumably.
I love myself some zombies, preferably the old-school ones that haven't learned how to run and chase me up ladders, but this expansion's premise could be considered a little played out. I don't really care though, because Borderlands is the type of game that would actually suffer if it didn't contain an island full of zombies to annihilate.
The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned is planned for release before the year's end, and will be priced at 800 Microsoft points, or $9.99 in real money. As will be the case with all of Borderlands' DLC expansions, it will include new guns, enemies, quests, guns, rare loot drops, guns, and guns.
Borderlands has lots of guns in it.
