2K Games and Gearbox Software announced today that the first add-on content campaign for Borderlands 2, Captain Scarlett and her PirateÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Booty, is now available for download worldwide on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3Ã‚Â and Windows PC. In Captain Scarlett and her PirateÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Booty, up to four players cooperatively enter the hostile sand dunes and wastelands of Pirate Bay in search of ancient treasures. The add-on content campaign features new characters, including the eccentric and eager Shade; locations such as the town of Oasis; enemies including the Sand Pirates and Anchormen; and special weapons and loot that make it a must-play experience. No trip to Pandora is complete without a stop in Pirate Bay.
Captain Scarlett and the PirateÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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.
Also available now is a fifth playable character class, Gaige, the Mechromancer. This mechanically menacing teenager summons a giant robot she named Deathtrap that, through various devastating ranged and melee attacks, helps Gaige and her fellow vault hunters clear the battlefield of enemies. The Mechromancer character class is a separate piece of downloadable content and is free to all customers who pre-ordered Borderlands 2 at participating Premiere Club retailers and is available to anyone else for $9.99 (PlayStation Network) / 800 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE online entertainment network) / $9.99 (Windows PC). Customers who purchase the Mechromancer will also be rewarded with other Premiere Club bonuses including a free Golden Key and LuckyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Relic.
