DLC in Gearbox’s Borderlands series makes the game bigger. New levels, new locations, new monsters, and of course, new guns to loot. Borderlands 2, released 2012, received its last DLC, Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary, this July. At PAX West this year, Gearbox announced additional DLC support for Borderlands 2 VR. Originally released for the PlayStation VR in 2018, Borderlands 2 VR adapted the original loot-and-shoot to virtual reality. Owners of the title can download the free Bad Ass Mega Fun DLC pack (BAMF, for short) on September 6.
The BAMF includes 16 different pieces of DLC from Borderlands 2. Captain Scarlet and Her Pirate’s Booty, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, and Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep are all updated for the single-player VR experience. Players can now also play as Gaige (the Mechromancer) and Krieg (the Psycho). All five Headhunter DLC packs make another appearance alongside the Creature Slaughter Dome. Cosmetic upgrades from the Vault Hunter Heads and Skins packs are also free. Both Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Packs are included in the bundle as well.
Additionally, Borderlands 2 VR PC will finally become a thing sometime this fall. It will include the base game and all of the DLC in “one glorious bundle,” according to Gearbox.
This isn’t the only Borderlands related news to come out of PAX this year. A new title in the series was announced at PAX East in March and we’re expecting more today at PAX West. Fans eagerly anticipate the release of Borderlands 3, available September 13 on the Xbox One and Playstation 4 consoles on September 13. The PC version of Borderlands 3 will also be available on the Epic Games Store. A Steam release is expected in April 2020.

Can’t stop the Zane Main Train. I’ve been playing through The Pre-Sequel lately and enjoying it. Despite its story hiccups, the gunplay is solid and fun. I’m playing as both Wilhelm and Aurelia and like how distinct all the player characters feel.
