First Borderlands DLC Announced

2K Games announces the first DLC for Borderlands, even though Gearbox Software's role-playing shooter isn't due until next week. The DLC called The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned is due for release by the end of this year. Here's word:

New York, NY - October 15, 2009 – 2K Games announced today that the first piece of downloadable content for Borderlands™, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, is planned for release later this year for all available platforms for $9.99 (800 Microsoft Points). The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned is in development at Gearbox Software and is the first in a series of downloadable expansions that will enhance the Borderlands mayhem in fun and exciting ways.

Tasked with keeping the workers of Jakobs Cove alive, Dr. Ned (who is not related to Dr. Zed from Fyrestone) does his job a little too well, creating zombies and other abominations that now run rampant in this region. Players will have to work alongside Dr. Ned as they embark on a quest to cure the inhabitants of Jakobs Cove in this full-fledged expansion filled with new enemies, new quests and rare loot drops.

yeah, I'd be pissed if I paid full retail for the game. I kind of doubt this is content held back from the game just to be doled out in a $10 DLC pack though.

It doesn't sound like the game itself is particularly lacking in value and if you get in on the discounts available for the game it lessens the blow of having DLC content so soon, though it's optional to get it.

I think Dragon Age wins the douche bag award for DLC "too soon" as it'll have two DLC packs on the day of its release.
