Borderlands 2 won’t get a second season pass
Sorry, vault hunters – from here on, you’ll have to buy your Borderlands 2 DLC at full price.
A Gearbox representative told Polygon that the developer has no plans to launch a second season pass for the shooter RPG, despite recently-announced plans to continue releasing content.
“Through the course of our grand experiment, we’ve also learned that fans are happy with an a la cart menu for DLC because they can pick and choose the content that they most want to buy and really customize their Borderlands 2 experience,” the representative said.
Gearbox pointed out that by including the first Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack in the season pass it delivered greater value than originally announced. It did this to reward loyal fans, whose continued purchases have enabled further development.
“They’re voting with their wallets – and we are grateful that there are enough of them asking that we can justify the cost of developing the content,” the spokesperson said.
At PAX Australia, Gearbox announced several new pieces of Borderlands 2 DLC.
