More Borderlands DLC emerges

By
Viva La Robolution! Fans of the breakthrough IP first person shooter Borderlands will be extremely happy to learn that more content is wheeling their way.  This time it is a Claptrap revolution needing to be suppressed.   Claptrap's New Robot Revolution to be exact.

The cell shaded four player co-op, post apocalyptic shooter, Borderlands, was a surprise hit from late last year.

The game sparked enough interest for 2KGames to heavily support the title with tons of interesting DLC.  Currently available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 system and PC. The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned*, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot* and The Secret Armory of General Knoxx* add-on packs are all available separately on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360 for 800 Microsoft Points and on the PlayStation Network and PC for AU) $12.95 and (NZ)$15.50



But now the robotic led revolution is upon the denizens of Borderlands as 2KGames point out: 2K Games and Gearbox Software announced today that Borderlandsâ„¢ fans can return to Pandora's inhospitable environment to enjoy a brand-new destructive downloadable adventure in Claptrap's New Robot Revolution*.  This fists-of-fury-filled fourth add-on pack from the popular franchise will be available this September via Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for 800 Microsoft Points and the PlayStation®Network for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC for (AU) $12.95 and (NZ)$15.50.

Claptrap's New Robot Revolution invites single-player and co-op fans back to try to suppress a deadly Claptrap revolution using one of four infamous vault hunters. The foursome find themselves caught in the crosshairs of a deadly civil war between the Hyperion Corporation's well-armed armadas and the ever-amassing army of homicidal Claptraps led by one of the most eagerly awaited characters in the franchise's history - the cunning Ninja Assassin.  As vault hunters, players must put aside their past differences with the Hyperion Corporation, namely the organization's repeated attempts to wipe them from existence. For a hefty payday, they will join forces to help beat down the mechanical uprising and thwart the dastardly kung-fu expert, the Claptrap known only as Ninja Assassin.

'A year ago Borderlands was an untested brand that through hard work and a lot of passion, turned out to be one of the best-selling, claptastic and skagtacular games we have ever created,' said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. 'A year later, we are releasing our fourth DLC installment, Claptrap's New Robot Revolution, which illustrates our enthusiasm for creating highly entertaining content that enhances a franchise. In addition to serving as the perfect bookend to the original game, what gamer doesn't love a kung-fu-wielding Ninja Assassin Claptrap with nunchuck skills?'

Like its add-on predecessors, Claptrap's New Robot Revolution offers extensive co-op integration that seamlessly melds single and multiplayer experiences, and incorporates the most explosive role-playing shooter fun imaginable.  Claptrap's New Robot Revolution will provide more than 20 new missions to loot and tons of fresh enemies to blast through, including original boss battles, waves of homicidal Claptraps, well-armed Hyperion soldiers, and local creatures that have been Claptrap-ified - including crab-traps, rakk-traps and skag-trapps.  Fans can earn an additional 10 skill points for a total of 71 available skill tree points, and three more backpack slots for additional blood-yielding weapons and many hours of enjoyment.
