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.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
