General Knoxx Hits This Week

Third Borderlands DLC on track for... pretty much immediately.

TeamXbox is reporting that The Secret Armory of General Knoxx--the third piece of downloadable content for Gearbox's 2009 release, Borderlands--is currently scheduled to be released this week on all three platforms. The Xbox 360 gets it a bit earlier, with a planned release date of tomorrow, February 23. The PS3 and PC versions will follow on Thursday. Like the previous packs, General Knoxx will sell for $10.

In case you forgot, this is the pack that raises the level cap to 61 and adds new vehicles, guns, missions, and areas to the game. Here's more on that, in case you're interested. Jeff Gerstmann on Google+

Excellent. Probably going to take the risk and buy it before the reviews come out. Seems like a good bet. Unless of course GB puts up a review before Thursday convincing me otherwise.

Truly this is the age of meaningful DLC and bursting hard drives.
By the time I can grab Borderlands for $30 I should have time to thousand it and enjoy the great content.  Maybe, just maybe, the servers will still be running by then. Too. Many. Games. :)

An Xbox Live release on a Tuesday?  Strange.  But not unwelcomed!

Posted by JarenFace

Well, looks like my initial playthrough of Mass Effect 1 needs to wait. I'm always itching to return to Pandora (Though I should finish the Madd Moxxi again for that extra skill point).

Haha, sorry, what's "buying with caution"? You press A on the 'Confirm Purchase' screen really, really slowly?
Posted by jakob187

This means I have to buy this AND Mad Moxxi's next week.  Dammit, gaming industry - LET ME KEEP SOME OF MY MONEY!!!

Posted by spazmaster666

Fuck yeah, I'm about ready to play some more Borderlands. Looks like deciding to have an all nighter is gonna work out. :)

Posted by Killroycantkill

For real.. seems TOO soon. But I'm not going to  complain.
