Borderlands PC Patch 1.30 Released

BOOM widget 92184 As promised, Gearbox has released a new patch for Borderlands PC that brings its looter-shooter up to version 1.30.

Those with a physical retail copy of Borderlands PC can snag the 193MB patch from FileShack in two flavors--Worldwide or German--while those that purchased the game from a digital distributor like Steam or D2D will need to wait for a vendor-specific update.

The patch accompanies today's release of the third downloadable add-on, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx. Like the patch, those with a physical retail version of Borderlands PC can acquire the $10 add-on direct from Gearbox, while those that got the game through a digital outlet will need to buy it from their specific vendor.
