Season Pass, fifth playable character class and four substantial, story-driven add-on campaigns fuel popular shooter-looter's market mayhem
2K Games and Gearbox Software have announced that, to date, more than 5 million units of Borderlands 2 have been sold-in to retailers worldwide, making it one of the most popular video games of the year. A fifth playable character class, Gaige, the Mechromancer, was released earlier this month and is free for members of the Premiere Club who pre-ordered Borderlands 2 from participating retailers. For those who are not members of the Premiere Club, Gaige is available for purchase separately for $9.99 (800 Microsoft points). Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty, the first add-on campaign content for Borderlands 2, was also released earlier this month and can be downloaded now by anyone who has purchased a Season Pass, or can be purchased individually for $9.99 (800 Microsoft points).
The Borderlands 2 Season Pass includes $39.96 of add-on content and is available for $29.99 (PlayStation Network) / 2400 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE) / $29.99 (PC). Once purchased, the Borderlands 2 Season Pass enables gamers to download all of the announced add-on content campaigns for free as they become commercially available on the PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE and PC. All four add-on content campaigns are scheduled to be available by June 2013.
