Borderlands 2 Hot Fixes (2/19)

02.19.13 - Chris Faylor

New hot fixes for Borderlands 2 are now rolling out on PC / Mac, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3!

Borderlands 2 Hot Fixes
February 19, 2013
  • Mr. Torgue DLC: Fixed an issue where the Lootsplosion would not always trigger after defeating Piston.
  • Addressed instances of audio distortion tied to Axton's turret and kill skills.
  • Chere-amie sniper rifle and transfusion grenades no longer cause audio distortion.
  • Amp shots now use same sound effect regardless of whether player is client or host.
  • Assigned price to Anshin 'Evolution' shield so that players can sell it for money if desired.

A hot fix is automatically applied at the "Press Start" screen when Borderlands 2 is connected to the internet. In general, hot fixes are used to temporarily address issues between major updates. Hot fixes are not permanent -- they are temporarily stored in memory during the game session and lost upon exiting Borderlands 2.

To ensure that you receive hot fixes, make sure that your system is connected to the internet when Borderlands 2 boots up. A hot fix differs from an update in that an update contains changes that are permanently stored on your system and only needs to be downloaded once.

For more on hot fixes and updates to Borderlands 2, keep an eye on the respective Knowledge Base article for your platform: PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3.

Happy Loverpalooza!

02.14.13 - Chris Faylor

For years, Moxxi has delighted and excited Pandora's denizens with her theatrical style, pithy innuendos, and a seemingly endless supply of exes. But when it comes time to give out anniversary gifts and every single day marks a possible anniversary with someone, what's a poor girl to do?

Simple -- the Loverpalooza! Today, everyone gets to be one of Miss Moxxi's honorary exes. And Moxxi treats her exes well (apart from the ones she kills, of course) -- on Loverpalooza Day, she bestows eligible Pandoran men and women with free stuff! ...READ MORE

Fans won't have to wait long for more Aliens: Colonial Marines, as the February 12 release of the game on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC is only the beginning!

Four downloadable add-ons are currently in development, spanning new campaign and multiplayer content. The first add-on, Bug Hunt, is a new cooperative multiplayer mode in which players take on waves of increasingly difficult enemies across three brand new maps based on environments from the ALIENS film. Bug Hunt is currently planned to arrive in March, with the remaining three add-ons scheduled to be available by the end of August 2013.

These four add-ons will be available for individual purchase or as part of the Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass, a $29.99 / 2400 Microsoft Point bundle that offers a savings of almost 40% over buying the content individually*. The Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass is currently available for purchase on Steam and will soon be available on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.

For the latest updates on Aliens: Colonial Marines and details about post-launch downloadable content, keep an eye on GearboxSoftware.com as well as our Facebook and Twitter.

* Based on Season Pass suggested retail price of $29.99/2400 Microsoft Points and combined suggested retail price of individual downloadable content packs of $49.96/4000 Microsoft Points (Retail purchase of the Season Pass for Xbox 360® is for Microsoft Points equivalent to the suggested retail price, as noted here). Aliens: Colonial Marines required to access Season Pass content, sold separately. Internet connection necessary to download Season Pass content
