Borderlands 2's 'Pirate's Booty' DLC coming next week

Now that you've picked up the Mechromancer in Borderlands 2, you're probably seeking some fresh enemies to sic your floating death machine towards. We saw hidden hints of another downloadable content pack tucked away in the Gaige content, and today Gearbox Software has announced that it's coming sooner than expected. Next week, as a matter of fact.

The Associated Press reports that the "Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty" DLC features a new area called "Oasis" and focuses on the titular Captain Scarlett. You'll be fighting sand worms, piloting sand skiffs, and using a new currency called seraph crystals. The pack will hit on Tuesday, October 16, for $9.99. This campaign is part of the Season Pass, but Gearbox has previously said that some content will be produced outside the scope of the pass.
