No Extra Season Pass for Borderlands 2
Written By
View author's profile

Borderlands 2 will not receive a further Season Pass, despite Gearbox’s intention to continue producing expansions for the open-world shooter.

The current Season Pass content came to an end with the release of Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep last month. Now, with the announcement of further DLC in the form of T.K Baha's Bloody Harvest, some had speculated that there may be another Season Pass on the way. But that’s not the case.

“Through the course of our grand experiment, we’ve also learned that fans are happy with an a la cart menu for DLC because they can pick and choose the content that they most want to buy and really customise their Borderlands 2 experience,” said a Gearbox rep.

Gearbox also thanked fans for continuing to buy Gearbox’s DLC. “They’re voting with their wallets – and we are grateful that there are enough of them asking that we can justify the cost of developing the content,” said the rep.

You can read more about T.K Baha's Bloody Harvest, as well as the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2, here.

Maybe the early season pass purchasers should be rewarded by receiving the extra DLC free also??? Just a thought Gearbox!!!

@1 I agree, I think Season passes should come with some sort of guarantee that all future releases will be included. But then again im thinking from a consumer point of a view and not a seller. Morals and all that!

@3 Yes I paid for a season pass because it said it covered the story DLC,I don't care about the other stupid download's.But now they are releasing more story DLC that is not included in the season pass which makes the season pass pointless.If there is new achievements as well it will be utter horse shit,it's about being loyal to your customer who bought the season pass in good faith thinking it covered the new story's off the game because that's what it said when I bought the season pass.

@3 Exactly. You buy a season pass to save money in the long run, but you know going into it is a risk because you are paying for future content that has not been released or reviewed yet. As soon as you buy the season pass you have purchased those four DLC packs blindly regardless of how much you like or dislike it when it finally does release. Anything beyond that is unjustified crying from people that got exactly what they paid for but for some reason expect more. You want to play more DLC, then buy it. If you didn't like the 4 DLC packs then stop buying season passes and wait until it's released and gather opinions or read reviews so you can pick and choose what you want and what you do not.

@5 It did? Where? Every description online that I read, including the description in the download for the season pass on xbox live stated FOUR DLC packs. It said everywhere it would be four. Nowhere did it say "You get every story DLC that is created from this point forward". All you have to do is read, it does specify very clearly what you are getting before buying the season pass.

http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/Borderlands-2-Season-Pass/6087cc0a-9bcc-4b2c-9129-4492e950706c

Do we see where it says "Includes FOUR campaign add-ons"? That's what it said the day Borderlands 2 was released and the season pass was available for purchase.

@9 - It should be every pack that the developer plans to release and the price should of course be adjusted accordingly. That's why I move to call them 'content passes' from now on instead of season pass.

@10 you are correct they should have called it a content pass.

@7 A version of the game with all the dlc currently should be coming out soon, but I can't remember the release date. I seriously doubt they'd make a third version of the game once this and maybe another dlc comes out if they bring out much more. I wouldn't hold my breath on it. It's a good game though, the dlc falls short apart from tiny tina's campaign but shoot, it's still worth it.

I'm pretty sure those who bought the season pass that stated 4 DLC packs, including myself, knew damn well that you would be receiving 4 DLC packs. Here's another example, the Bioshock Infinite season pass.

http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/BioShock-Infinite-Season-Pass/2fd3d328-9cd3-4846-a0db-1d89aee236ad

"Continue the journey in the sky-city of Columbia, with new locations, new characters, and new weapons. Receive three add-ons for the price of two, plus an instant bonus. The instant bonus includes four pieces of exclusive gear, weapon upgrades and skins, and five Infusion bottles."

To me after reading that I am getting three DLC packs for the price of two. If a forth pack happens to be released at a later date I don't expect to get that as part of the season pass because it specifies 3. Just like Borderlands 2 season pass specified that you receive the 4 announced DLC packs. It says it in plain english, I don't get what's so tough to understand here.

I also very much doubt at the time Borderlands 2 was released they intended on going beyond 4 DLC packs because that's all they announced. Likely after seeing the continued success of the game, online population, and sales of the DLC they decided recently to add even more to it. You can't expect them to know 9 months ago that they intended to build on this further, it's just realistic expectations.

Anyway if it's too confusing for you, don't buy season passes anymore, problem solved.

@11 because season is a period off time for a specific thing,it can last a month are may be years.Like a football season lasts till the season ends and a new one starts.
A season for a game would usually be until the new game comes out like in season passes for COD.

The season pass for BL2 (and I'm pretty sure for every other game) made it clear it was for FOUR DLCS. It does not matter even a tiny bit what you THINK season pass means, what you THINK you should get out of it. You get the amount of DLCs they promised. If you don't understand that, then don't buy it! I'm sick of these illiterate idiots complaining that they should get more then what they agreed to pay for.

@12, just going quote yourself here

"It actually say's Gearbox will be releasing 4 story campaign DLC for borderlands 2 and you will get them all in the Season pass".
So thats 4! The 4 that have already come out.

"now anyone who bought the season pass would think that's all the story DLC".
No, anyone with half a brain would know thats 4! as it clearly states 4.

"They should have stated more will be released after the 4 have been released so gamers can they make a choice but they don't."
There was no plans to release anymore until recently.

"Its a total con and rip off"
Well no, not really, you got 4 DLCs for the price of 3 with the season pass, if they knew they were going to do more they would of upped the price of the season pass and made it 5 for the price 4, or 6 for the price of 5, etc. I don't quite understand what the issue is? You got what you paid for and at a decent price, better than what other publishers do and give yoh shit dlc and at a ridiculus price. If your that pissed off about it dont buy the next dlc and sell your copy of the game.

Wikipedia that bad boy!!!

"Season Passes are also used in certain video games. Depending on the game, they allow the owner to get some or all of the future DLC for the game (provided it has a Season Pass) for a one-time fee. The owner will then have access to the specified DLC as it is released. Also, some Season Passes have unique names, one example is Max Payne 3's pass, which has the name "Rockstar Pass."

@20 - Game of *Thrones*

Back on topic, i didn't buy the Season Pass, so this doesn't really affect me, however when you go to purchase the season pass for XBL it clearly states "All Season Pass content will be available by June 2013" and "Includes 4 Campaign Add Ons Plus Level Cap Increase" therefore if you had read what you have purchased before purchasing it you cant really complain that any future DLC will not be available on the Season Pass.

@20 That has to be the most stupid thing I've ever heard,nobody said they want borderlands 3 free.
I'll put it a way you might understand,just say you bought season 1 off Game off Thrones but instead off all the episodes they only gave you 80% and told you more would be released and you would need to pay extra.Would you be happy,no you bloody wouldn't because you paid for the season but didn't get it.
Its fools like you and the rest off the gamers who are happy to be screwed over that make companies screw the rest off us.
Its like the Xbox one i bet you were saying if you don't want it don't buy it when the restrictions were released but the rest off us who stand up for are rights complained and got them to change there mind.If it was up to you and the rest off the fools who say don't complain nothing would have changed.

@23, I was simply trying to get across to you what a 'season' or 'season pass' means by trying to put it into terms you might be able to understand but clearly not. No one has screwed you or anyone here by releasing more story DLC after the season pass, your simple mind just can't understand it that's all.

I for one jumped for joy when they changed the DRM on the Xbox one so don't make judgements kid just because you can't admit your wrong. I have also been in contact with Microsoft regarding the ridiculous price hike from USD to GBP one the Xbox one with a response simply blaming VAT for the increase in price.

How about we just agree to disagree, I'm not here to make arguments I was just trying to help you understand what the borderlands season pass included, everyone else seems understand it but you

People seem to get the idea that season passes should cover all DLC for said game from now until the end of time. The season pass said 4 DLC packs, you got 4 DLC packs. They even threw in the Ultimate Vault Hunter DLC as a bonus; which they didn't have to do.

I understand what I got when I order the season pass and like most people on this post if you bother to read it we are not happy about the way Gearbox has not stated that more DLC would be released after the season pass ended.
Read the posts to find out why people are angry instead off just saying you get what u get.If they informed us about the extra DLC I might have not got the season pass because what would be the point.
It about being loyal to your customers,even Activision doesn't do this with COD.

Jesus, if you want a great example of a season pass screwing gamers, look no further than Injustice. Releasing a character like Martian Manhunter; someone fans have been clamoring for since the game was announced, AFTER the season pass ends is a huge slap in the face. But at least we got popular DC Comics superhero Scorpion as part of the pass.

you know that all you whiners could just wait until the content is released, and use the internet to make up your own god damn minds on whether or not the content is worth all your hard earned cash.

i rarely buy a season pass as soon as it is out because there is no guarantee of the quality you will recieve

I really wish that other games got the DLC support that BL2 has gotten so far.

Ned king is one of the reasons gamers get a bad rep. Nothing is ever good enough! You just rather them stop supporting it so you can make sure you got all the dlc in your pass. Think logically here. You got 4 for the price of 3. So now you buy this pack you will get 5 for the price of 4. If they decided to do 5 from the beginning they would have charged more. You are paying the same in the end. Get over yourself.

I wish people would stop trolling a read why people are posting.
I know it said 4 DLC packs that is not the point,myself and every gamer thinks when you buy the season pass that will cover all the extra story campaigns for the game.That is the reason we buy the season pass,if they would come out and say before you buy this season pass we are letting you know more story DLC will be released later that is not included then I would have waited but they didn't.
Call it ripping off costumers are false advertising but it still not right and fair and how anyone thinks it is I will never understand.
So please read what gamers are saying and stop posting the same crap about the 4 DLC because we all know this,yes we have to accept it but its not fair on us gamers.

@39 Agreed

I loved the first Borderlands and all it's DLC. Granted the Underdome was my least favorite it was nowhere near the worst DLC I've played as I often see it referred to. So the season pass for BL2 was a no brainer for me. Not only do a ton of gamers sound like self-entitled little children. (some probably mad they have to ask mommy for more money) But also feel like they are forced to buy DLC. It's a simple concept, don't think it's worth the money, don't buy it/wait for a sale like a normal logical thinking person.

Season passes are nothing new, so I'm surprised people are still complaining about getting burned by them. If you don't know if the DLC will be worth it, don't buy the pass. If you're like me and you know you want all the DLC for a game like BL2 then you get to purchase it at a reduced price.

Lol. Ned king I just want you to explain how anyone is getting ripped off? Your points are not valid. You also keep throwing around false advertising but you obviously don't understand what that means. We all got what was advertised with the pass. Nothing less. If you are pissed because you assumed that was it with story dlc then you need to look in the mirror. Put the onus on you because you assumed something. People need to stop blaming others for their own misunderstandings. Also please look up false advertising and educate yourself and then come back with a valid argument.

"I know it said 4 DLC packs that is not the point,myself and every gamer thinks when you buy the season pass that will cover all the extra story campaigns for the game."

Okay, if you want to complain that you feel ripped-off, cheated, bamboozled, etc. Fine. But don't include a gross generalization "myself and EVERY gamer" because it makes you look like a troll. I understand you're angry and want your voice to be heard, but continually posting here is gaining you absolutely nothing. Go over to the Gearbox forums or send them some emails/snail mail, hell, contact 2K customer service. Just stop wasting everyone's time here. As I'm sure you can see, the majority of us are happy and/or content with this situation.

OT: I can't wait for more content, I've had so much fun playing this game with my friends and look forward to further adventures on Pandora.

Anybody complaining about the new content not being included in the season pass is either an absolute moron or illiterate. The contents were clearly outlined and nobody should expect more than they gave us, which they actually have done as well, so even less to moan about. If I buy season one of a TV show at the store, should I expect to get every other season of the show for free when they release? This goes beyond entitlement and into evidence to support that gamers really are stupid people. You don't even have to read the fine print to understand what the season pass included. If you're having trouble understanding this simple concept, the rest of your life is going to be a massive struggle.

I hate Gearbox, but in this case they've done nothing wrong.

“Through the course of our grand experiment, we’ve also learned that fans are happy with an a la cart menu for DLC because they can pick and choose the content that they most want to buy and really customise their Borderlands 2 experience,” said a Gearbox rep.

If this is to be believed, by their own definition - Gearbox don't think that Season passes are the way forward. So therefor we wont see another one from Gearbox.
---------------------------

But of course we all know we will. And next time Gearbox will tell us how good value the season passes really are. So Ned King has a point. Its about being ripped off and the concept of that.

I personally don't expect any characters, weapons or clothes in a season pass. But I do expect all campaign DLC or maps. So I personally wont be buying the next season pass. Because as per the 'a la carte' advice from Gearbox - I'll only now pick the good DLC, which means that when shit DLC like 'Sir Hammerlocks Dick' comes out and its 'good value' as part of the season pass, thanks to Gearbox I now know not to buy the season pass and therefor I'll avoid the crap.
Thanks Gearbox - You cleared it up for me.

Even so, that won't stop me from further expanding my Borderlands 2 experience. Gotta do something with those MS Points (at least until they turn into actual currency) :)

I hate to use the term ... But Ned Kind is the very definition of an "entitled gamer". Mothing is ever good enough, I want everything and more, and anythin less than that is screwing us innocent customers over!

You are not getting ripped off if it clearly states what you are getting when you purchase the season pass, and you get that. What you "think" season pass means DOES. NOT. MATTER.

The season pass, at sale, literally said THE FIRST 4 DLC PACKS. You got what you paid for...if they gave you more, praise em. If not, that's fine too, they did what they promised.

So l, if I understand Ned King correctly, he would rather that Gearbox make no more DLC for the game because it cannot logically be included in the season pass. He would rather be deprived of what may be great content because he didn't already pay for it. This is ignoring the fact that, had 5 DLC's been planned instead of 4, he would have paid the exact same amount that he is now paying. The only difference is that he would have paid $25 months ago instead of $20 then and $5 now.

Tl;dr, Ned King, you are unequivocally, beyond the shadow of a doubt, in every aspect of the word, wrong. Many times companies do screw the gamers. This is not one of those times. In this instance, you have been, are being, and always will be, wrong.

@58 read comment 53 to understand what people are on about.
In future I'll not by the season pass and get 3 rubbish DLC but instead buy the only good one and save myself money then I can see if the new stuff is any good.
Gearbox has done me a favor.

I know I'm gonna get shit for this, but it's just my opinion. I feel like the only reason they're trying to pump out extra DLC is to make of for the loads of money they lost on Aliens. Borderlands is really all they have going for them right now and they're trying to take advantage of it as much as they can. If you like the game, good for you keep playing, but I personally got tired of it after I finished the second DLC, it just got to repetitive and the humor wore off on me. If they were to announce a Borderlands 3, I wouldn't really be interested in it at all.

@59

All you said is that you don't like a particular DLC that came with the season pass. That makes a season pass a bad value for you, but it doesn't mean that they ripped you off. If you were to buy a season of a TV show and it included some really shitty episodes, would you assume that you deserve the next season at a discount because it is critically acclaimed and recognized as better than Season 1? No, because you bought Season 1 and are entitled to nothing more than what was supposed to come with that season. You would be ripped off if they shorted you a disc, not if they gave you sub-par content.

Now, if you want to make the argument that season passes, in general, are dumb because they convince you to pre-order (effectively) DLC, then yeah, you have a point. You have no idea what the content is. But even then, you buy the season pass being fully aware that you have no idea what the content is beyond a small blurb about it encompassing some story content, albeit at a discounted price. You obviously wanted the cheaper price, so you bought the season pass. You were burned by some DLC that did not meet your standards. If you are an organism of higher intellect, you will not purchase another season pass again. But you were never ripped off. You were given what you purchased, it just happened to be that you purchased wasn't as good as you thought it should have been.

@62 You need to go a look up the word ripped off,you can buy something knowing the exact price and still get ripped off.Do you never watch rouge traders,watch dog etc were people buy stuff that is a rip off.
Like I said read comment 53 it explains the concept off why gamers feel rip off,to me the season pass was not worth the money I paid for it so in my eyes I was ripped off.
Ps gamezone,C&VG,IGN have loads off people complaining about the same thing,gamezone had an article about gamers being unhappy the way gearbox is releasing more story DLC after the season pass because most gamers have traded the game in thinking the season pass covered it.
Like I said Gearbox did me a favor because I'll not buy the season pass again.

@64 That's good because I hate trolls who don't even read posts.This is a achievement site were people put there views and opinions across.
So the only person whining is you,if you don't like gamers opinions that's fine but not once did I say I wanted something for nothing.
So read the posts and stop being a troll about it,its just gamers opinions and you know if you insult someone they will reply so put your opinion across but stop insulting others over there's.

Ok this is the last time I'm going to post no matter how many people slag me over something so simple.
Incase someone wants to know what all the arguments are over.
Ok all I posted was I bought the season pass thinking it covered all the story DLC like in every other game I bought.I didn't think it covered extra guns,suits etc.Plus if you go to games sites like gamezone,IGN etc you will see I'm not the only person who thought this.
Now I find out more story DLC will be released I feel a bit ripped off because lets be honest the season pass DLC was not the best apart from the last one.Im guessing the new stuff will be good so in future I'll wait and buy it when I read reviews first.
That's all I said and because off this people were saying I'm why gamers get a bad name and I'm a scrounger,I never once said I want something for nothing are should be entitled to anything.
Maybe its because they didn't read what I posted and are just trolling,if so I'm silly for getting sucked into the arguments but I can't believe the amount off stick I'm getting for being a bit cheesed off at Gearbox for trying to make a fast buck off us gamers.Maybe its because Aliens flopped like comment 61 says but the DLC is getting more expensive than the game lol.
That's all I'm saying on this subject so you may agree are not but please read what I've posted and give your own opinion but don't have a go at gamers who bought the season pass who don't think its worth the money.

That last post is the first time you've legitimately said that you were not expecting something for nothing, just that you felt underwhelmed. If you had actually said that at the beginning instead of saying that we were conned and ripped off, which we were not.

And for the record, I don't troll, but people tend to not like having the flaws in their arguments pointed out, so they just resort to name calling and such.

@67 God I fed up off you talking rubbish,now your saying its the first time I said I wasn't expecting something for nothing but not in any off my posts did I say I did want anything for free so what are you on about.Tell me what post I ask for free stuff because I didn't,to me the season pass was a rip off maybe your happy with it but I wasn't and like I said even if you know the price off something its still can be a rip off.
So in your opinion your happy with gearbox but I'm not,I work for a living so to me I hate wasting money and the season pass was a waste off money.
So read what I posted and I wasn't the one who started the name calling,I'll not be replying anymore because its a waste because you don't read them.

I haven't even played the DLC yet, so I can't say whether or not the value is there. I also work for my money, however, which is the reason I purchased the season pass, to save money on DLC I would purchase anyway. Because I will be purchasing all of the DLC, the season pass saves me the price of one.

And you said you deserved all the story DLC in the pass, but, as I pointed out several times (since you clearly don't read my posts), Gearbox never said you would get them all, just that some would be included and there would be four.

@71 lol that's a good quote off mine it proves what I've been saying all along that people thought the season pass covered all the story DLC,doesn't say I deserve it are wanted it free so why quote it.
Plus I have said that I would stop but I've been replying to a fool who keeps coming out with rubbish.
In comment 64 you also said you would stop which means I do read the posts and you really don't so to me it seems like your just trolling because who would slag someone over something they are doing themselves.
Goodbye I'll not be replying because your just looking for an argument and if you want to prove me wrong just leave it that we both have our own opinions and don't post anymore.

All it proves is that you don't understand that the words you type can be interpreted in other ways. Instead of saying something like, "I can see how you thought I meant that, but I actually meant this", you decided to take it as a personal attack and got defensive. I'm not slagging on you, I'm telling you how I, and obviously others as well, interpreted what you said. I apologize if you thought I was being hurtful, that was not my intention, but if you can see where I'm coming from, why should I bother to see where you are.

Let me know how you can interpret that from that post because to me its simple,I thought and a lot off others did too that the season pass covered all the story DLC like in gears,COD etc.
How can you interpret that to mean I want are deserve free stuff.

You said you thought all story DLC was included, it was not, so you got mad and said you were ripped off. That's not a term you use unless you feel you are owed something. I wasn't the first person to make that observation either.

How many times do you have to be told you can be ripped off are feel ripped off even if you know the price off something.So anyone who's says I wasn't ripped off doesn't know the meaning off the word.
So even though I got 4 pieces off DLC which I said in loads off posts I still feel ripped off because they weren't worth the money and I wouldn't have even bought it if I knew more story DLC would be released later on.
You haven't even played the DLC but trust me when you do you will feel ripped off because the last one is the only good part off it.
Its like in rogue traders were somebody pays money for work and agreed the price but find out the work wasn't worth it so they have been ripped off by dodgey dealers.
So if you do like the DLC that's fine and you will be happy but I'm not and lots more are unhappy as well,but like I said they done me a favor because in future I'll only buy the DLC I want.
So please stop repeating the same stuff over and over and read the first time I posted it.

There are more instances if you'd like them.

Finally, if I thought you were incorrect in your use of the word "off" in the phrase "ripped off", why would I then proceed to use it several times myself, only later to call it to your attention that you were wrong it its use. Or did you realize you had been misspelling "of" (which is a two (2) letter word, by the way) and though that maybe you could throw me off (there is the proper use) and pretend that I thought that you hadn't actually used it incorrectly. Everything else I can chalk up to a difference of opinion or misunderstanding, but I cannot wrap my head around this.

So which is it, that I'm a dumb shit because you thought I didn't know what "off" meant, or that spelling doesn't matter, thus ridding you of your "dumb shit" defense? Because it can't both matter and not matter.
