Continuing a trend set by the last two “headhunter” DLC packs for Borderlands 2, Gearbox Software is venturing into wintery holiday fun with the latest announcement, How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day. The third in the string of late-blooming, short-but-sweet DLC packs, this new outing hopes to keep people coming back to Pandora, this time in the snow-laden hideaway town of Gingerton, where a trainload of Marcus’ weapons has gone missing.
Our heroic Vault Hunters will be pitted against caroling bandits, Yetis, and a gigantic evil snowman by the name of Mister Tinder Snowflake as they scour the town of Gingerton and the surrounding areas of Frost Bottom. As with preceding Headhunter packs, How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day offers new skin customizations for players who defeat this sinister final foe, this time with significant Christamas overtones.
How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day comes to Xbox 360 and PC, and PS3 Dec. 17th in North America, and is expected to land in Europe and Oceania the following day.
