Borderlands 2 Third DLC Now Available: Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt
Can’t hate a developer that keeps on breathing new life into a title that was released in September 2012. Unlike other companies and their aim for DLC (I’m looking at you Capcom), Gearbox is pretty upfront about their objectives when it comes to paid content. Good, solid content that actually expands on the existing game is always welcome and that’s exactly the plan that Gearbox has for Borderlands 2.
The best part that I love about Borderlands 2 DLC is that it allows gamers to get an entire season at a discounted price. To top it all off, sites like Green Man Gaming have periodic offers that knocks down that price even further. So, stay tuned on their site and grab it the moment it goes on sale!
What are you waiting for? Just one more DLC left to go before the season is complete!

Singapore – January 16, 2013 – 2K Games and Gearbox Software announced today that Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, the third add-on content campaign for Borderlands® 2, is available for download today worldwide* on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC. To date, the critically acclaimed shooter Borderlands 2 has won more than 55 end-of-year awards worldwide, including “Best Shooter” and “Best Multiplayer” at Spike’s 2012 Video Game Awards and “Game of the Year” from G4TV.
Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt takes place in Aegrus, the uncharted territory deep in the swamps of Pandora and features new appearances by familiar friends like Sir Hammerlock and Claptrap. It also introduces some all-new characters, like Hyperion Scientist Professor Nakayama, who wants nothing more than to derail your hunting trip. With Borderlands 2’s cheeky adventurer as their guide, vault hunters will explore the all-new environments of The Sun Swamps while on memorable quests to collect irresistible new loot and fight devastating new bosses, such as the cave-dwelling beast Thermitage. All the while, up to four friends will cooperatively hunt down new enemies such as the spider-like Two- Legged Drifters, flying Slagged Spores and insane Vampire Witch Doctors – that unleash swarms of blood-thirsty bats. Vault hunters beware: this is sure to be the most dangerous Borderlands hunt yet!
Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt is the third of four add-on content campaigns for Borderlands 2. The Borderlands 2 Season Pass is still available for purchase, giving players immediate access to the first three add-content campaigns, and the fourth one by June 2013. The Borderlands 2 Season Pass provides US$40.00 of add-on content for only S$37.69 (PlayStation®Network) / 2400 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network) / US$29.99 (Windows PC). Each add-on content campaign, including Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, is also available for purchase individually for 800 Microsoft Points.
“2K prides itself on publishing high-quality, high-value games, and Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt lives up to those standards,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “The team continues to do brilliant job extending the Borderlands experience, and the Season Pass allows our fans to enjoy that content at a great value.”
“Claptrap needed work and Sir Hammerlock needs help, so Borderlands 2 players are called to action,” added Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt is a new, original campaign expansion to the Borderlands 2 experience featuring awesome new content including a new fan boat vehicle that can be rigged with a badass flamethrower to help fight tons of new beasts and tribal enemies and take their loot.”
