In a sheer hilarious style, Gearbox has revealed a new DLC for their zany shooter slash RPG in a series of humorous ECHOcast tweets. Jump in for more info!
Gearbox, the developers of the exponentially popular shooter/RPG hybrid Borderlands series, have revealed the last two DLC's to their newly released sequel in a creative way: through the interactivity of social networking.
Utilizing their @ECHOcast Twitter feed, Gearbox made it appear as if someone were hacking their account, tying in a brand new nefarious baddie from the Borderlands universe to the digital tampering. Mr. Torgue has apparently taken over the ECHOcast and is running amok, spraying visceral oddities and hilarity to all of Gearbox's followers.
Mr. Torgue only hinted at the new Borderlands 2 DLC via the hijacked ECHOcast Twitter feed before it was officially announced on Gearbox's website as "Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage", featuring a brand new ringleader for total chaos and havoc–which are signature staples to any Borderlands game.
This story-driven expansion challenges players to conquer all that the titular Mr. Torgue has waiting in his newly-constructed Badass Crater of Badassitude, complete with a new storyline, new areas and environments, new bosses, new guns, new character customizations and more. In addition, Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage features appearances from fan-favorite characters like Tiny Tina and Mad Moxxi!
Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage will be available on Tuesday Nov. 20, 2012 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC for $9.99 (800 Microsoft Points). For more information on , please visit Gearbox's official website, or talk to the crazy madman himself via Gearbox's Twitter feed: @ECHOcast.
