2K Games has announced the Borderlands 2: Add-On Content Pack, a collection of DLC for Gearbox's open-world shooter that will collect all of its digital content up through its second add-on campaign.

Due worldwide on 26th February for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, the Add-On Content Pack will be priced at $29.99 and contains $40 worth of DLC including:

  • Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty campaign.
  • Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage campaign.
  • Gaige, the Mechromancer; the game's fifth playable character.
  • Access to the Creature Slaughter Dome battle arena where you can earn Mad Moxxi's rare rocket launcher.
  • Unique weapons including the Gearbox Gun Pack and Skyrocket Grenade.
  • Additional heads and skins.
  • A Golden Key to unlock rare loot from the golden chest in Sanctuary.

Importantly, the Borderlands 2: Add-On Content Pack does not contain Borderlands 2 itself and the parent game is necessary to run anything in it.

Borderlands 2's first two expansions were both awarded 9/10s at Eurogamer (as was Borderlands 2 for that matter). "This is a vast, generous offering: a true expansion from a developer that obviously cares deeply about its creation, rather than a corporate cash-grab mandated by the boardroom," wrote Dan Whitehead in his Captain Scarlett review.

"The Campaign of Carnage is yet more evidence that nobody does post-release game expansion better than the Borderlands team," added Simon Parkin in his review of the second expansion, which he called "essential."
