Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Get Four DLC Packs And A Season Pass

During the Inside Gearbox Software panel at PAX, the studio announced that the upcoming shooter looter would have four post-release add-on content packs and a season pass granting players access to all the new content.

Following the release of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on October 14th, the game will get four add-on content packs that will include new characters, missions, and experiences. Each set of DLC will retail for $ 9.99, but players can also purchase a Pre-Sequel Season Pass that will include all the content for $ 29.99.

Players who pre-order the game will get the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit bonus content, which will also be solid separately, but will not be included in the Season Pass.

Mario Kart 8 DLC packs incoming; include Link, Animal Crossing characters, and new tracks

Two new DLC packs are on their way to Mario Kart 8, and they are friggin’ DELICIOUS. The two packs, the first of which will be out by the end of November 2014 and the second of which will release by the end of May 2015, add new characters and tracks to the beloved racer.

There is just so much hatred contained in this one shot

The two packs will be $ 7.99 each ($ 11.99 as a bundle for savings!), and will contain the following:

Pack 1: The Legend of Zelda X Mario Kart 8 (Release: November 2014)
3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
4 Vehicles
8 Courses

Pack 2: Animal Crossing X Mario Kart 8 (Release: May 2015)
3 Characters: Villager, Isabelle, Dry Bowser
4 Vehicles
8 Courses

Some of the new courses being added are from other Nintendo series, like The Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing, which is just the BEE’S KNEES. New vehicles are also being added, like the Blue Falcon from F-Zero. Gamers who buy both packs, either separately or in the bundle, gain access to eight new colors of Yoshi and eight new colors of Shy Guy to race with (which you can start using now if you pre-order the DLC).

To pre-order the new Mario Kart 8 DLC, click the ‘Shop’ icon in the game or visit the Nintendo eShop on Wii U. More details on this add-on content can be found at the Nintendo website. I’m certainly going to be busting out my copy of MK8 soon after hearing this news; what about you readers?

Our Take
Kudos to Gearbox and 2K Games for continuing to support Bordlerands 2 for a year and a half. With as much support as the pair has thrown behind our second trip to Pandora, I’m eager to find out what’s in store for new generation consoles. Perhaps a new Borderlands is one of the over 10 in-development, new-generation games Take-Two mentioned on its recent earnings call.
