Secret Armory of General Knoxx Borderlands DLC Unveiled

Head Back to Pandora With 3rd Piece of Borderlands DLC

January 28, 2010 – Gearbox Software unveiled details regarding the latest downloadable content for their surprise hit Borderlands today. “The Secret Armory of General Knoxx” promises hours of new content aimed at players ranging from levels 34 to 50. Gamers already at the level cap need not worry; the DLC will increase the maximum level from 50 to a new unspecified cap. According to a press release on Gearbox’s official community site players will, “face off with brutal, never-before-seen enemies in a huge new environment complete with tons of brand new missions.” In addition to the new missions and level cap increases gamers can expect to find all sorts of new weapons. It should be interesting to see what Gearbox has come up with. After all, this is the title that introduced gamers to such gems as the shotgun that fires rockets. Further details are non-existent and no release date has been announced.

Borderland was released this past October for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The unique sci-fi FPS/RPG hybrid surprised both critics and gamers, garnering critical and commercial success (to the tune of approximately 1.3 million units sold). It was developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games. Two pieces of DLC have been released; The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned and Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot. Both retail for 800 Microsoft Points or $9.99.
