Secret Armory of General Knoxx Released Today
The third Borderlands DLC pack, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is being released today on Xbox Live Marketplace! By today, I mean the Feb 23rd 2010 for those of you reading this at a later date. It's also being released on the 25th for poor ignored PS3 owners. This just like the previous two packs is priced at 800 MS points ($10/£6.80) on the 360, or just straight up $10 of real dollar monies on the PS3.
This is the third expansion from Gearboxes 2009 FPS/RPG hybrid brings with it a higher level cap, new vehicles, new enemies, and whatever you get when you time a bajilion by itself (I am no mathematician, but I reckon it probably has a lot of zeros) in new weapons. The new level cap is 61, which I think it specifically chosen to mess with people. An increase from 50 to 60 would be too logical and normal, and not that's not how Borderlands rolls.
Worth noting if you haven't beaten Borderlands is that this new area continues the game on from the ending, so you will get nothing out of it if you haven't completed it yet. This differs from the Zombie Island pack because that scaled to your current level. I imagine that those of you like me who played the zombie DLC will be way too high level for the beginning parts of this new pack which from what I've seen is balanced for Level 36-37.
As of posting this, the pack is not up on marketplace.xbox.com
, but probably will go live in the next few hours.
: It's up! As of 19:30 UK time I am downloading it. I think that's like 11:30 on west coast US, and 14:30 on the east cost. Unless my time maths has gone awry, which it probably has.
