Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage is finally here, Borderlands 2 fans. Why, it feels like it was just officially announced last week, but now here we have this launch trailer and the game is available for download. Time sure does fly! Prepare to get more Mr. Torgue straight to the face than you'd typically ever want or need.
Randy Pitchford, Gearbox president, reminds us how he's got Borderlands 2 fans right where he wants them:
"Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage represents an evolution for Borderlands 2 expansions. I'm confident that Borderlands 2 players will love the new locations, story, challenges and awesome new characters and cameos from some of our favorites. Did someone say Tiny Tina?"
Take it, vault hunters. Take your story, challenges, new characters and locations and like them. If you don't, Randy Pitchford will take Tiny Tina away forever and he'll replace all your favorite characters with Clap Trap. If you'd like to lodge a complaint, too bad, because all of Gearbox has headphones on looping an audio track that says, "Be a badass."
Borderlands 2's second of four campaign DLCs is now available for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for the price of $9.99, or it's already unlocked as part of the game's DLC season pass. The structure of Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage is a bit unclear, as it's advertised as a story-based system similar to Captain Scarlett, but also seems to be reminiscent of Mad Moxxi's DLC from the original Borderlands. Guess I'll have to jump in and find out for myself.
