Borderlands 2 'Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty' launches today along with new trailer

2K Games and Gearbox have released a new trailer to go alongside the arrival of Captain Scarlett and her Pirates's Boot, the first add-on content campaign for Borderlands 2. The DLC is now available for download on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

In Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty, you can enter the hostile sand dunes and wastelands of Pirate Bay in search of ancient treasures. The add-on features new characters, including the "eccentric and eager" Shade; a new town called Oasis; new enemies like Sand Pirates and Anchormen; and even more loot and weapons!

Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty is the first of four planned add-on content campaigns for Borderlands 2. Each add-on can be purchases individually ($9.99 each) or as a combined purchase through the Borderlands 2 Season Pass which includes nearly $40 of additional content for $29.99 (2400 Microsoft Points). All four add-on campaigns are scheduled to be available by June 2013.

“We’re so excited at how the Borderlands 2 experience continues to grow with Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty and the fifth playable character class, the Mechromancer,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K, referring to the recent release of Gaige, the Mechromancer — a teenager who summons a giant robot named Deathrap to fight alongside her. "With hours of new story-driven content to play through and an entirely new character to play as, gamers are getting a lot of additional value. The really exciting part is that we’re just getting started.”

“The love we’ve felt for Borderlands 2 is driving us wild and ever since we completed development of the main game, we have been fired up about creating great, new content to expand the experience,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “I am thrilled to announce the release of Borderlands 2’s first additional player character, Gaige the Mechromancer, delivered ahead of schedule. I’m also incredibly excited about Captain Scarlett and her Pirates’ Booty, which is an all-new grand adventure for Borderlands 2 and the first of a four-part season full of big, original campaign expansions.”

It's interesting to see Gearbox and 2K Games go in the direction of pirates, while it seems every games seems to be leaning towards zombies. With three more content packs remaining, who thinks we'll see the walking dead start roaming soon?
