Borderlands 2: DLC add-ons, Season Pass, pre-orders

And a partridge in a pear tree?

2K and Gearbox have promised four add-on DLC packs for Borderlands 2, post-launch. There aren't any specific dates, but they'll all be out by June 2013, apparently.

2K has also announced a pre-order camapaign that gifts guns, goodies and the fifth, Mechromancer class - the one the "girlfriend mode" outburst was about. More on the pre-orders below.

Back to DLC.

"These four add-on content campaigns will each feature several hours of gameplay and introduce new adventures, allies, enemies and environments," the 2K press release promised.

Each DLC pack will cost $9.99 on PC and PS3 (no or € available yet), and 800 Microsoft Points (6.80) on Xbox 360.

2K will also offer the option of buying the four DLC add-ons in bulk with a Season Pass. This costs $29.99 on PC and PS3, and 2400 Microsoft Points (20.40) on Xbox 360.

Buying all four DLC packs without the Season Pass would cost $39.96 on PC and PS3, or 3200 Microsoft Points (27.41).

Dare you risk shelling the money out upfront? Well, Borderlands 1 had great DLC - some of the best ever made.

Quick recap: The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned (8/10), Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot (8/10), The Secret Armory of General Knoxx (9/10) and the not-quite-as-good Claptrap's New Robot Revolution (6/10).

Let's hope Gearbox can reproduce the same kind of DLC form.

Back to pre-orders. Pre-ordering either the Standard Edition or the Deluxe Vault Hunter's Edition grants you access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club. When you're in the Premiere Club you can download the Gearbox Gun Pack, the Vault Hunter's Relic (boosts gear-hunting fortune), a Golden Key (unlocks Golden Loot Chest in Sanctuary) and the Mechromancer class.

The pre-order campaign's honoured at GAME, HMV, Play, Amazon, ShopTo, Blockbuster and The Hut.
