According to joystiq, this upcoming expansion, titled Captain Scarlet and Her Pirate’s Booty, will be making it’s way on to your platform of choice October 16th. You may remember that this was the original date at which Borderlands 2 first DLC character, Gaige the Mechromancer, was supposed to release.
As predicted, this campaign expansion is set to future numerous the following:
- A new area called ‘Oasis’, described by president of Gearbox Software, Randy Pitchford, as a dried up landscape that’s currently occupied by bandits.
- Seraph Crystals are the new currency for this upcoming DLC.
- A Sand Skiff vehicle.
- Four new bosses: Captain Scarlett, The Leviathan, Hyperius the Invincible, and Master Gee the Invincible.
- One of the raid bosses can only be farmed once a day. Due to a lockout that prevents this mysterious raid boss multiple times.
- Every character, including Gaige the Mechromancer, gets a new head to unlock.
- Seraph now seems to be the highest tier of rarity, beating the orange rarity items. You’ll know an item is of Seraph rarity due to its pink lettering.
- Three new achievements will also be available with this upcoming expansion DLC, which are; Gadabout, Completionist and Tresure Hunter.
