The most successful piece of DLC for Borderlands 2 was Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep. It was a satisfying piece of content because the premise, Vault Hunters play a fantasy role-playing game with a psychopath as GM, allowed Gearbox to blend all the crazy ideas that didn’t fit in the main game with a fantastic bit of character development. The Claptastic Voyage, coming for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel looks like it may provide opportunities for the same kind of storytelling. In this fourth chunk of Pre-Sequel DLC, the Vault Hunters get zapped into Claptrap’s brain to retrieve a MacGuffin from his source code.
These anti-heroes will have to deal with Claptrap’s personal insecurities, his malware, and digital representations of his crushing loneliness.
Claptastic Voyage also includes the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 which will raise the level cap to 70, and give each character 10 more skill points to earn. It will be available on March 24th for $9.99 separately or as part of the season pass.
