Borderlands 2 Mister Torgue DLC Next Week; More Details

There are some details on IGN about the Mister Torgue's Campaign of Carnage DLC for Borderlands 2 that was officially revealed yesterday after being outed last month. They offer some concept art from the pack along with a trailer where artist Scott Kester shows off some gameplay and discusses Gearbox's goals for the DLC. Word is this will launch next week, and they have details on what to expect:

Borderlands 2’s second expansion -- Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage -- will launch on November 20th. Like Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty before it, Campaign of Carnage offers new areas for players to explore, three new achievements, a new currency and plenty of new missions for players level 15 or higher, with enemies scaled to your level.

The basic story of Campaign of Carnage revolves around a new vault discovered in Pandora, buried in the center of a large crater that will only open “once the champion of Pandora feeds it the blood of the ultimate coward.” Your introduction to Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage comes via Mr. Torgue himself, screaming at you like a terrifying mix of Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage with a deep love for explosions.

As Mr. Torgue describes the new vault, “we at the Torgue Corporation sincerely believe this is f**king awesome -- so awesome that we're going to set up a tournament to find this number one badass.” That tournament takes place in an arena that will serve as the centerpiece of the expansion, built around the Badass Crater of Badassitude where the vault is buried. You’ll need a sponsor to participate, and one of the first new characters you’ll meet is Piston, a scarily-large brawler with engine pistons for hands.

Oooooooh.

Now I'm the one not reading.
Sorry about that, I totally missed what you meant and yeah, you're totally right on that. People do keep buying crap. But if a company keeps ripping people off people will stop buying it. Madden didn't innovate and people stopped buying them. Yeah, they're made, but they're no longer a huge hit because people realized that they didn't need the new versions every single year.

CoD won't quite hit that, because the new versions actually offer something new. That "new" may just be new maps, but it's enough to get the bulk of the community to shift, and most people play the games not because of the games themselves but because of how large and competitive the multiplayer community is.
