Happy Holidays

12.24.12 - Chris Faylor

Hope your holidays are as much fun as a snowball fight with a Bullymong!


Grab your friends and get ready to head back to Pandora -- the third add-on campaign content pack for Borderlands 2, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, arrives January 15!

What starts off as a relaxing hunting expedition with Sir Hammerlock soon takes a sinister turn as our Vault Hunters stumble across a new villain intent on restoring the legacy of Handsome Jack. Irresistible new loot, memorable new quests, a variety of challenging and exotic new enemies, a new vehicle and more await players as they fight their way through the never-before-seen lands of Aegrus to give this evil-doer the old one-two!

Available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC beginning January 15, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt is included with the Borderlands 2 Season Pass and will also be available a la carte for 800 Microsoft Points / $9.99. The Borderlands 2 Season Pass is still available for $29.99, a great offer that includes immediate access to the first three add-content campaigns with the upcoming fourth being free.

Want to learn more? Check out the previews on Kotaku, IGN and GameSpy and follow @ECHOcasts on Twitter to interact with Sir Hammerlock himself.
