The Christmas-themed DLC for “Borderlands 2,” “How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day,” is now available via Steam, Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation 3 via PlayStation Network for $2.99, Gearbox and 2K announced in a press release today obtained by Examiner.
The story in this DLC, the third in the Headhunter series, is full of holiday cheer, but in the silly, but cool “Borderlands” fashion gamers have come to expect. After a train of Marcus’ guns goes missing in the snowy town of Gingerton, Marcus enlists the help of some hunters, who find a pissed off snowman by the name of Tinder Snowflake and a ton of baddies they didn’t expect. The final stand against Mr. Snowflake is something Gearbox is particularly proud of.
“This fight took a lot of extra effort from our animators and visual effect artists to get his movements just right, so we’re really excited for you guys to finally experience it,” Gearbox’s Drew Mobley said on 2K’s official blog last week.
The DLC also includes a Santa outfit for Salvador the Gunzerker and an ugly sweater for Krieg the Psycho, as well as a snowman head for your vault hunter.
