The first expansion for Borderlands 2, Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty, will be releasing next Tuesday on October 16th, as announced by Associated Press. If you think having a pirated-themed expansion set in the dry, rough lands of Pandora is strange, then you’d be right. Instead of an ocean, the expansion featuring the pirate queen Captain Scarlett introduces a new desert area containing the bandit town of Oasis. What shouldn’t be ironic is the fact that pirates and bandits share a common love- the love of treasure- and there’s no doubt the expansion will feature a lot of it.
In addition to the new area, new features include the Sand Skiff (the new vehicle shown in the pic above) and a new currency.
Captain Scarlett will be priced at $9.99. Players that have a Borderlands 2 Season Pass can access all four pieces of the planned DLCs for $29.99.
