Borderlands DLC dated

Borderlands DLC dated

The new Borderlands DLC, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, will be released on November 24th for consoles.

Gearbox and 2K Games have at last spilled the details on the first batch of downloadable content for forum-favourite FPS Borderlands, saying that the expansion will be released on November 24th for consoles.

Unfortunately though, while Gearbox have promised that the DLC will definitely come to PCs at some point there's still no date narrowed down for the PC platform.

According to the official Gearbox twitter feed there will be an announcement about the PC release in the future.

Dubbed The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, the Borderlands expansion will add in a new location that comes complete with new quests, weapons and enemies. The main story will follow the efforts of the eponymous Dr. Ned as he tries to cure the inhabitants of Jakobs Cove of a deadly disease.

The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned will cost 800 Microsoft Points (£6.80 / €9.60) on Xbox Live and around $10 or £6 on the PlayStation Network.

You can check out our review of Borderlands for more information, but suffice to say it's a damned good game despite a few troubles.

Why is there no DLC on the PC yet? Because Microsoft have paid Gearbox for timed exclusivity, and because PC gamers aren't willing to pay as much. Gotta love business.

You can play Shattered Horizon while you wait, once you understand this game you will never play another FPS for a long long time.

If Microsoft paid for timed exclusivity then why is it coming out on the same day on PSN? Chances are they're just staggering the release to iron out some issues like they did with the release of the game. You gotta calm down.
