Four Post-Launch DLC Packs Planned for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel


With Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel development in final stretch mode for the upcoming October 14th launch on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, 2K and Gearbox are beginning work on post-launch downloadable content. True to Borderlands tradition, The Pre-Sequel is going to be supported with a whole lotta DLC.

While specific details about the DLC have not yet been announced, 2K has confirmed that four add-on packs will deliver “new characters, missions, and experiences.” Each pack will sell individually for $9.99, or in a season pass bundle for $29.99.

A piece of DLC not included in the season pass, the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit, is available as a free bonus with pre-orders from participating retailers like as well as through Steam. Anyone choosing not to pre-order will be able to purchase the DLC sometime after the game’s launch. I can’t find a full description of what the Slaughter Pit entails, but from what little information has been provided it sounds like some form of a survival arena to complete for additional experience and loot rewards.
