News: 2K calls it a "bookend," so it's likely the last DLC expansion.
2K Games and Gearbox Software have announced that the fourth (and possibly final) downloadable expansion to Borderlands will be available this September. Dubbed "Claptrap's New Robot Revolution," the expansion will be available on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for $9.99 (or 800 Microsoft Points).
?A year ago Borderlands was an untested brand that through hard work and a lot of passion, turned out to be one of the best-selling, claptastic and skagtacular games we have ever created,? said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. ?A year later, we are releasing our fourth DLC installment, Claptrap's New Robot Revolution, which illustrates our enthusiasm for creating highly entertaining content that enhances a franchise. In addition to serving as the perfect bookend to the original game, what gamer doesn't love a kung-fu-wielding Ninja Assassin Claptrap with nunchuck skills??
Gearbox has said that "Claptrap's New Robot Revolution" will provide more than 20 new missions and that gamers can earn an additional 10 skill points for a total of 71 available skill tree points and three more backpack slots. The expansion will also include a variety of new enemies including several news bosses and a ton of killer robots:
Claptrap's New Robot Revolution invites single-player and co-op fans back to try to suppress a deadly Claptrap revolution using one of four infamous vault hunters. The foursome find themselves caught in the crosshairs of a deadly civil war between the Hyperion Corporation's well-armed armadas and the ever-amassing army of homicidal Claptraps led by one of the most eagerly awaited characters in the franchise's history - the cunning Ninja Assassin. As vault hunters, players must put aside their past differences with the Hyperion Corporation, namely the organization's repeated attempts to wipe them from existence. For a hefty payday, they will join forces to help beat down the mechanical uprising and thwart the dastardly kung-fu expert, the Claptrap known only as Ninja Assassin.
We'll have more soon.
