Yesterday’s update to Borderlands 2, which added new character Gaige the Mecromancer to Gearbox’s looter-shooter, looks to have revealed clues to the game’s first, major location-based DLC.

Shack News has reported that new achievements added to Borderlands 2 yesterday, point to the new desert town location of Oasis as possible upcoming DLC, in an update titled “Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty.”

One of the new achievements, titled Gadabout, is awarded when you discover “all named locations in Oasis and the surrounding Pirate’s Booty areas,” suggesting a new area will be delivered.

Elsewhere, details of the source files from the PC version of Borderlands 2 posted on the Gearbox forums suggest possible new items and a new vendor who sells top-level gear but only accepts “Seraph Crystals” as payment.
