Ubisoft, SuperBot, Irrational Games, Activision, and even Sonic the Hedgehog have all been impacted by leaks of video game info recently and with the next-gen consoles on their way and E3 2013 approaching, leaks are becoming more and more prevalent. Now the developers of Borderlands 2 have officially joined in that fray too. This latest leak regarding future DLC was because of a writer and not over-eager code sleuths like was the case with the recent Last of Us end-game spoilers situation, so perhaps that makes it more palatable. With the info specific to DLC, any spoilers it might have engendered are likely less potent.
Borderlands 2 released in September 2012 and gamers seemed rather fond of it. Since then, quite a bevy of (elaborately named) DLC has come about, including Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, and some other less in-depth chunks. Gearbox even turned out two whole “seasons” of a webseries based off of the babbling Claptrap, the one-wheeled companion robot who never shuts up. And they’re not done yet. A minor blunder on Twitter has revealed the next (and last) piece of Borderlands 2 DLC, which has only teased up until that point, is suddenly more inevitable than ever.
Gearbox writer Anthony Burch is the source of the info, having tweeted a photo of Steve Gibson, the VP of Marketing at Gearbox, snoozing on an admittedly very comfortable looking couch with a revealing poster in the background. The poster confirmed the title of the next DLC to be “Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep” and Burch quickly deleted the tweet, which only fueled the buzz.
Following the “somebody’s something” naming theme, this piece of DLC has been promised by Gearbox to be “the biggest yet” and to follow a fictional tabletop board game called Bunkers and Badasses that lampoons Dungeons and Dragons. Shortly after the leak, Gearbox officially announced the “Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep” DLC, even though Anthony Burch inadvertently beat the rest of them to it. This pack is the fourth and final and will run gamers $9.99. It’s included for Season Pass holders and releases June 25, 2013.
Do you think Tiny Tina, in a sort of Dungeon Master role, can carry it all by herself?
