Last week there was a rumour of a possible leak regarding another Borderlands DLC. This is now confirmed and details have been provided. Claptrap's New Robot Revolution is to be released during September and comes with the price tag of 800MSP. Gearbox released the following as a press conference - follow the jump to read.
Claptrapís New Robot Revolution invites single-player and co-op fans back to try to suppress
a deadly Claptrap revolution using one of four infamous vault hunters. The foursome find
themselves caught in the crosshairs of a deadly civil war between the Hyperion Corporationís
well-armed armadas and the ever-amassing army of homicidal Claptraps led by one of the most
eagerly awaited characters in the franchiseís history - the cunning Ninja Assassin. As vault
hunters, players must put aside their past differences with the Hyperion Corporation, namely the
organizationís repeated attempts to wipe them from existence. For a hefty payday, they will join
forces to help beat down the mechanical uprising and thwart the dastardly kung-fu expert, the
Claptrap known only as Ninja Assassin.
Like its add-on predecessors, Claptrapís New Robot Revolution offers extensive co-op
integration that seamlessly melds single and multiplayer experiences, and incorporates the most
explosive role-playing shooter fun imaginable. Claptrapís New Robot Revolution will provide
more than 20 new missions to loot and tons of fresh enemies to blast through, including original
boss battles, waves of homicidal Claptraps, well-armed Hyperion soldiers, and local creatures
that have been Claptrap-ified - including crab-traps, rakk-traps and skag-trapps. Fans can earn
an additional 10 skill points for a total of 71 available skill tree points, and three more backpack
slots for additional blood-yielding weapons and many hours of enjoyment.
Gearbox went on to state this will be the last DLC for the game. As it is being released sometime in September, it might not have the best of starts seeing as Halo: Reach gets released. With luck, this DLC will be as enjoyable as Secret Armory was.
