Borderlands 2 Captain Scarlett DLC Next Week

The CBS 3 Website has a confirmation of Tuesday's rumors of DLC for Borderlands 2 called Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty. It turns out the release of this pirate-themed DLC is expected next week on October 16th for $10.00 USD (except for Season Pass holders). Here's what they have about this for now:

The downloadable content focuses on the one-eyed pirate queen Captain Scarlett and is set amid an expansive desert that features a bandit-filled shanty town called Oasis.

"You can sense the pirate theme across the landscape, even though there's no water," said Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford. "It's all dried up. It feels more like Tatooine than an ocean. These bandits have really embraced the pirate lifestyle, and there's the legend of a treasure. That kicks off this whole adventure that the players can go on."

The new campaign tasks players with battling new enemies like sand worms, hovering across the terrain in the new sand skiff vehicle and collecting a new currency called seraph crystals. Pitchford said the new campaign was designed with all players in mind - from those who haven't finished the game to the elite who are replaying it again to discover more swag.

I might pick this up, dunno. There's Treasure! Yeah, it'll be a chest that drops four shitty-ass green weapons.

Amen brother, so tired of getting shitty drops in that game. After 70 hours I've seen 3 legendaries and 2 of them weren't even very good. Maybe a dozen purples, half of them total garbage because of that multi-barrel nonsense or some other stupid modifier. The loot was the one thing they did pretty well in the original, not sure how they messed it up so much this time. Give me 87,000 unique and useful guns instead of 87 bazillion pieces of shit that I need to farm hours on end for.

If they are smart they will drop good one's. You pay $10, we give you great virtual drops. Anything less is stupid on their behalf. Like Mecromancer, you give us $10 and we'll give you an over-powered character to play.

OR else.... You'll keep the shitty drops and standard characters.

Slots FTW!

Haven't quite finished play through 2 on my Siren only because I spent the last 24 hours smashing through play through 1 on a mechromancer. Hit 32 and finished just in time for bed last night. So for me it's perfect timing plenty of time to finish play through 2 on the Siren and maybe even get the mechromancer close.

This game is taking up all my free time...

I'm going to play the sniper challenge today, then Dishonored, then XCOM (once it's patched), then Hitman.

I didn't know they've had Chuck Norris in Dishonored

Dishonored is really, really good and being overshadowed by BL2 and XCOM. I hope it sells well enough for a sequel, I am just having an awesome time with it.

Yeah, as much as I'm enjoying not knowing what the fuck I'm doing in Xcom, I'm beginning to think I'd have enjoyed Dishonored more...

Doesn't this breach copyright IP of Captain Scarlet? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Scarlet_and_the_Mysterons)

Surely adding the extra "T" doesn't let you off the hook, or can we have a new game called "The Muppett Show" or "Harry Potta" and get away with it? Distinctly dodgy.

I would assume that Gearbox made a deal with the original IP owners to be allowed to use the name (and perhaps likeness) of the character.

Wonder how Dishonored will stack up against Hitman. I do want to buy either of them, but both looks so good.

I'm going straight from BL2 to Dishonored. XCOM sounds good, but at this point, it'll have to wait.

Seems a bit hasty, I think I'll hold off and just keep working through the backlog then pick it up when its cheaper.

Too many good games to play not enough time in a day
Same problem many people seem to be having lately

Yeah, I've still not installed TL2 yet. I finally organized my steam games into 3 sections: Classics/Favs, New/Unplayed, and everything else. As I finally get to play something, it either gets moved to the Classics category or tossed into the dreaded "never play again" pile.

Seeing how XCOM sucks my gaming time away from Borderlands, I doubt I will be near finished with BL2 by next week.
