2K Games has revealed the first batch of Borderlands DLC called The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned.

It'll cost $10 or 800 Microsoft Points (£6.80/€9.60) and will be available on all three formats (PC, PS3, 360) "later this year" - around Halloween may be a good estimation.

Dr. Ned appears to be a meaty addition; there are new quests, enemies, locations, and loot drops. The story involves helping the aforementioned doctor cure the inhabitants of Jakobs Cove, trouncing Ned's out-of-control abominations and zombies along the way.

We've cobbled together a trio of screenshots of the content for our Borderlands gallery.

Borderlands launches next Friday, 23rd October. It looks hot. The gamepages below are stuffed with coverage.
