Borderlands - Joins the DLC Bandwagon

by Woges, 2009-10-16 13:35:46

Zombies appear to be the fad of the games industry atm and Gearbox doesn't seem to want to be left out. It does, at least, sound somewhat more substantial than most DLC content. Cheers to Rock, Paper, Shotgun for the announcement.

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. 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.
