Ships Ahoy - Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt

2K Games and Gearbox Software announce the release of Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt, the new DLC for the Windows and console editions of Borderlands 2, the role-playing shooter sequel. This is included for season pass holders, or available as a separate purchase for other owners of the game. Here's word on what this adds:

Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt takes place in Aegrus, the uncharted territory deep in the swamps of Pandora and features new appearances by familiar friends like Sir Hammerlock and Claptrap. It also introduces some all-new characters, like Hyperion Scientist Professor Nakayama, who wants nothing more than to derail your hunting trip. With Borderlands 2’s cheeky adventurer as their guide, vault hunters will explore the all-new environments of The Sun Swamps while on memorable quests to collect irresistible new loot and fight devastating new bosses, such as the cave-dwelling beast Thermitage. All the while, up to four friends will cooperatively hunt down new enemies such as the spider-like Two-Legged Drifters, flying Slagged Spores and insane Vampire Witch Doctors – that unleash swarms of blood-thirsty bats. Vault hunters beware: this is sure to be the most dangerous Borderlands hunt yet!

I'll revisit it later when all of the DLC is out. I was not a fan of the idea of them doing another round of DLC that the pass I bought I wouldn't cover though so I hope they don't go through with that.

The season pass includes the 4 major DLC (3 of them have been released: scarlett, torque, hammerlock)

There's a few others which it doesn't include, but which are mostly pointless.

1) The mechromancer (aka pre-order) pack. If you preordered (it was like $30 or less at GMG at various times) then you have this already. If not, you can get it AND pretty much all the pre-order bonuses (including the reskinned guns, the vault hunter relic to increase drop rates, and the extra golden key).
2) The collectors edition pack. This includes some silly useless fireworks grenade, and some skins. Thats it.
3) The creature slaughter dome. This was the gamestop pre-order bonus. There's another arena included in all copies of the game, so this is just an extra arena. Not all that great, and nearly identical to whats already in the game.

So really, there's not much point to most of it except the mechromancer, and if you pre-ordered you have that already.

The last major DLC (4th part of season pass) is scheduled to be out around June. I'd expect a GotY version during the holidays. So if you don't mind a year wait, I'm sure everything BL2 will be on sale then.

Also, I've heard there's a way to unlock #2 and #3 with just some ini file editing.
