Anthony Burch, lead writer for Borderlands 2 and all of it’s campaign DLCs, has revealed a bit more information about the upcoming and possible final campaign DLC for Borderlands 2, Tiny Tina’s Assault On Dragon’s Keep.

Speaking with MCM, Burch notes a number of new additions to Borderlands 2 via the upcoming DLC, though what he had to say has been mysteriously been pulled as of this writing.

Tiny Tina’s Assault On Dragon’s Keep is basically the player playing through a Dungeon & Dragon’s type module, with Tiny Tina acting as the Dungeon Master during the whole DLC. The story will have you going on rather cliche fantasy quests, such as saving the queen from the handsome sorcerer. But, while of this is going, during the real world, the original vault hunters from the first Borderlands, Brick, Lilith and Mordecai are all talking to Tina discussing the event’s that happened during the game. Tina herself is in denial of the deaths of her friends, giving this DLC a rather darker feel to it then the previous ones.

Although Tina is in denial of certain things that happened during the main game, it will lead to rather interesting moments, such as pushing the importance of Roland onto her quests during this D&D module the further you progress through it. You’ll also get to meet the Tiny Tina version of Angel, whom she thinks is a monster. Speaking of character cameos, you can be sure to expect a few surprises when you play this add-on, such as the fan-favorite Mr Torgue. As Anthony reveals, he will be included as a quest giver who gives you off-the-wall missions. On top of all the craziness, Tina can can make mistakes like making enemies well past your level, but fixing it on the fly.

Now, no Borderlands 2 DLC wouldn’t be complete without some rather bad-ass weapons added to it. Thankfully, this upcoming add-on is no different, as Anthony reveals that we will see some new weapons that are capable of shooting swords that explodes. There will also be these ‘magic’ grenade mods, that has the character who’s using it shout-out words such as ‘lightning bolt’ and ‘magic missiles’ as if the characters themselves are casting a spell. Some also regenerate ammo over time, in the similar fashion ‘mana’ would work in a traditional RPG game, where you would regenerate your mana over time.

For Borderlands 2 completionist out there, you can expect this DLC to roughly take around 10 hours to finish all of it’s main story and the side quests it will contain. Tiny Tina’s Assault On Dragon’s Keep is slated for a June 25th release and will be available for $9.99 USD/ 800 Microsoft Points. Those who purchased the season pass for Borderlands 2, will receive this DLC add-on at  no extra charge when it becomes available.
