“Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution” Suppressing Borderlands This September

August 11, 2010Written by Adam G

As you may remember, four days back, we reported on a leak that gave away pretty much every piece of information there was about this yet unannounced piece of DLC.  It was a fairly monumental leak; you can’t just sweep something as big as an elephant under a rug and forget that it’s there. And so, 2K Games have done the next best thing; they’ve uncovered the elephant and started parading it around outside their offices, or, to bring this disastrous metaphor to an end, they have confirmed that there will be a fourth plundering of downloadable content to sink your thirsty trunk into.

A specific date hasn’t been nailed down but the 20 new missions should arrive at some point in September. Most of the story has already been leaked, but here it is again in slightly different, more official words.

“Claptrap’s 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 Corporation’s well-armed armadas and the ever-amassing army of homicidal Claptraps led by one of the most eagerly awaited characters in the franchise’s history – the cunning Ninja Assassin. As vault hunters, players must put aside their past differences with the Hyperion Corporation, namely the organization’s 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.”

So, are you as pumped as we are for more Borderlands?
