2K Games and Gearbox Software announced today that Borderlands 2 will offer four brand new add-on content campaigns following the release of Borderlands 2 for X360, PS3 and PC. These four add-on content campaigns will each feature several hours of gameplay and introduce new adventures, allies, enemies and environments. They will retail individually for $9.99 (PlayStation Network) / 800 MS Points (Xbox LIVE) / $9.99 (PC).
The Borderlands 2 Season Pass will grant access to all four of these add-on content campaigns as they become commercially available. The Borderlands 2 Season Pass will be available for purchase when Borderlands 2 is available on September 18, 2012.
The Borderlands 2 Season Pass includes $39.96 of add-on content and will be available for $29.99 (PlayStation Network) / 2400 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE) / $29.99 (PC). Once purchased, the Borderlands 2 Season Pass enables gamers to download all of the announced add-on content campaigns for free as they become available on the PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE and PC. All four add-on content campaigns are scheduled to be available by June 2013.
Gamers who pre-order Borderlands 2 from participating retailers will gain access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, allowing them to download the Gearbox Gun Pack, a Golden Key, the Vault Hunter’s Relic and an all-new fifth character class, the Mechromancer.
The Gearbox Gun Pack is a collection of unique guns to help players begin their journey on Pandora.
The Golden Key is used to unlock a rare in-game item in the mysterious Golden Loot Chest found in the town of Sanctuary.
The Vault Hunter’s Relic is an in-game item that boosts players’ gear-hunting fortune while playing solo or teaming up with friends.
The Mechromancer character class will be available following the launch of Borderlands 2 once development of the character is complete.
For those who do not pre-order Borderlands 2, the Mechromancer will be available for purchase at a later date. The Mechromancer character class and other preorder items are not included in the Borderlands 2 Season Pass.
Borderlands 2 will be available in North America on September 18, 2012, and internationally on September 21, 2012.
