Randy Pitchford Drops Borderlands 2 DLC Hints

With Borderlands 2 out this week, Gearbox CEO and Borderlands Executive Producer, Randy Pitchford has offered up the first hints regarding DLC for the game during the 2K Borderlands 2 panel at the Gearbox Software Community Day. Apparently, Pitchford wants to do something that would pay homage to Return of the Jedi's sand skiff.

"I've always wanted to ride a sail barge and drive a sand skiff," said Pitchford. "I've always wanted to do that, and we've got some cool stuff that's along those lines."

There's four DLC packs planned for Borderlands 2 to release by June 2013. You'll be able to grab the Borderlands 2 Season Pass in order to get your hands on all four packs for the price of three, which works out to roughly $30. Borderlands 2 is out on September 18th in North America and September 21st in Europe.

Agree with 2 other then Moxxi the DLC from the first one was well worth it and come on a whole DLC pack ripping on Star Wars pure epicness.

To all those saying there going to wait until the content is discounted:

Congratulations to you, you have more patience than me, you all deserve a medal or trophy of some kind.

Seriously I'm not joking.

Paid off my copy of the game yesterday, picking it up at midnight tonight. They offered me the season pass at Gamestop, but I don't really have the extra $30 right now. I do plan on getting it fairly soon though.

@5: Or what I could see happening is a sale on the Season Pass while it's still in Season like the Gears 3 season pass when it was on sale during the 12 days of christmas last year. I'll be waiting as well, there will be a lot of playtime out of the content on disc plus with the Mechromancer character coming out in October I can hold off DLC until a sale :P

I'll be buying the pass in a couple weeks. No rush. It sucks that I still need to wait like four days to play my copy though :/

Oh yeah, I remember hearing this! I really love the original Star Wars, and I think a level with some Star Wars themes would be amazing. I can already start think of some new achievements: Thats No Dune (10) Discover the Arid Dunes, Who Shot First? (15) Kill An Unexpecting Enemy With One Bullet, or Skiff It, Skiff It Good (5) Ride A Sand Skiff And Get Three Seconds Of Air! Lol, personally am really just excited for the game. Let me play that first, then start stacking on the DLC!

Lets hope they're all up to the standard of General Knoxx's Armory, thats got to be one of the best DLC on the Xbox.

I'll wait for the $30 used copy and either get the DLC on sale or I'll just get a $3o used copy and hold off on the DLC or I'll just wait until the game of the year/ultimate/etc. edition comes out to play the DLC. I can live without DLC, because 95% of it isn't worth full price.

@7: Yeah same here. When I went in, the sales person started freaking out when I told him I didn't have the money. He sat there saying it would save me money but only if I bought it from Gamestop. I guess they are going to sell it for $40 once Borderlands 2 is released. I just don't have the money. $60 on a game is all I can do right now.

@9: I feel your pain. The extra days would drive me crazy. But from what I have seen, it is 100% worth the wait!

@12: What!? How could you even wait that long for Borderlands 2? I'm having problems waiting less then 24 hours and here you are saying you could wait for the GOTY edition which may not be out till 2014! Dude! You got mad patience skills! And besides the Underdome, I actually really enjoyed all the DLC on Borderlands. For $10 I got more then just three maps like some other un-named FPS does.

I know it's off topic, but I cannot STAND these rollover ads that ruin the ability to read an article! Anyone else having this problem? They span a third of the page and I have to skirt around them like I'm defusing a bomb just to get to read the article. I wanna shoot my screen with a Shattering Serpens!

(See? I threw some Borderlands in there at the end...)

Honestly, since I haven't had a chance to even play the base game, yet (midnight, my precious) I don't wanna hear about DLC...

I'm slowly morphing into a little school girl...Come midnight, they're going to have to check my ID.

I'm all for season passes as long as its a good deal but i'm a little confused by this one. Is it 4 pieces of DLC including the Mechromancer? Or 4 pieces as well as the Mechromancer? As I have the Vault hunters Edition on pre-order I will be getting the mechromancer free as do all pre-orders so is there any point in getting the season pass if the Mechromancer is part of the 4?

As far as I understand, the Mechromancer is a completely separate add-on. There will still be 4 DLC to download at later times.

BTW, Gamestop was saying the $30 season pass price is only temporary? Anyone know for how long until it goes up?

@22 I can't imagine how it will go up, unless Gearbox will make the DLC's $15 each .
