Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Season Pass and pre-order bonuses detailed
The Borderlands franchise is no stranger to downloadable content, so today's announcement of a Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Season Pass doesn't come as much of a surprise.
Priced at $29.99, the Season Pass includes access to four add-on content packs that encompass new characters, challenges, missions and experiences. With each DLC pack retailing for $9.99 individually, the season pass essentially saves you 25 percent of the would-be total cost.
Unfortunately, specific details regarding the add-on content will remain a bit vague. "As Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel nears completion and the teams shift their focus to add-on content, additional details will be announced as development progresses," 2K writes.
The Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Season Pass will be available for purchase when the game releases on October 14, 2014. Once purchased, the Season Pass enables the download of all included add-on content packs as they become available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
In addition to the Season Pass, 2K also revealed that anyone who pre-orders The Pre-Sequel from participating retailers will be rewarded with the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit bonus content. "Taking place in an old Dahl facility on Pandora’s moon, players will meet TR4-NU, who once was one of Dahl’s military recruiters until he went crazy. TR4-NU is now hosting the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit and giving awesome loot to those who succeed against the moon’s toughest enemies," the description reads. The Shock Drop Slaughter Pit content is not included with the Season Pass, but will be available for purchase at a later date for those who don't pre-order Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
