Well hello Vault Hunter, how nice to see you! The third DLC for Borderlands 2 was released yesterday on the Xbox LIVE, PS3 and Steam marketplaces. You may pick up the new offerings for $9.99 / 800 Microsoft Points or as part of the Season Pass. Expect to discover new areas laden with new weapons, enemies and perhaps a new vehicle to help you travel the continent of Aegrus a little easier than on foot.
Earlier, we had reported that you could gear up in Borderlands 2 over the weekend in preparation for the new DLC. Gearbox decided to push out the compatibility pack update as well yesterday to each of the three systems as they have done in the past. Unfortunately for players on Xbox LIVE, there was an error with this update and it could not be downloaded throughout the entire day.
January 15th was also the day Gearbox decided to have an increased chance at fighting Vermivorous the Invincible as the featured prize of the gear up event. Most Xbox LIVE players could not partake in this event as you needed to have at least two people in the game. As most people play this game online with friends, this was kind of hard to do unless you could sign in another Xbox LIVE account on your own Xbox. Luckily though, Gearbox was gracious to extend the hunt for Vermi until January 17th at 10:55 AM / 4:55 PM GMT.
So get to hunting you gentlemanly Vault Hunters! Also make Sir Hammerlock proud by staying tuned for our review of the Big Game Hunt in the near future.
