Borderlands 2's third dose of proper DLC is out today with Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt. The latest add-on brings a range of new environments and quests to tackle, with an array of new enemies you'll encounter, including the maniacal Professor Nakayama.

There's also a funky new hovercraft vehicle that's perfectly suited to traversing the swamps and grasslands, as well as "buttloads of new loot" to hoard. You'll also find plenty of creatures to hunt and kill, and a lot more besides. It's all in the launch trailer below.

Borderlands 2's Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt is out later today for 800 Microsoft Points. You can also download it as part of the Season Pass for 2400 Microsoft Points.

I'm holding off on all the DLC until they raise the level cap

i bought the season pass and have played the first 2 sets of DLC but all they have done is just the same DLC but change the characters and the area.

i cannot believe gearbox cannot come up with some DLC with something different to do rather than just go from A-Z on missions.

I have a feeling that they're just releasing these small dose DLC's for the season pass. Once they fulfill that, they'll probably release DLC that matches up with General Knoxx and raise the level cap.

I got Borderlands 2 yesterday and had a lot of fun with it especially when I heard an enemy say "I am the one who knocks". I almost didn't belive it until I looked it up.

What the fuck is up with Gearbox?

Are they TRYING to get us to stop playing the game?

A new DLC that seems pretty much like the last two is unplayable because the compatibility pack doesn't work, will pretty much offer new loot that isn't better than what I've already got, still doesn't raise the level cap and has yet another RAID boss.

Mmmm'boy, can't wait to fire up my XBOX.

Next thing I'll find out is that their story in the Aliens: Colonial Marines game seems to ignore the movie of which it claims to be the direct sequel...

Oh, wait.

You can still play the expansion without downloading the compatibility pack, I'm doing that right now.

You only need to download the pack if you play online, offline should work just fine.

@#17 - Since I tend to almost exclusively play with friends, my original statement stands.

@#18 - You know that you can criticise something and remain perfectly calm while doing it, right? Now if you didn't like the points I brought up, that's something else entirely and we can discuss that instead, if you like.

I feel they try to hard to be edgy or maybe "hip" with their advertising. I've bought no DLC for's "new" areas that look relatively like the rest of everything else, just a different name. Creatures are reskinned but same models, and you do the same quest types. Go remake Duke Nukem 3D HD or something useful, Randy Pitchford.
