If you've been itching for some Borderlands 2 downloadable content that doesn't involve starting over with an entirely new character class, Gearbox has some good news for you. As of next week, you'll be able to get your hands on the first story content DLC for Borderlands 2, in the form of Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty. Yes, that's a double entendre.

The Captain Scarlett DLC takes place in the sun scorched sandscape of Oasis, an area infested with bandits and pirates, including the titular (stop giggling you infantile creep) Captain Scarlett.

The DLC will go for $9.99, except for those who have already purchased the $29.99 DLC season pass. They'll obviously get it for free. It's expected to launch across all platforms on October 16.

I've actually had the chance to play some of Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, but hilariously, I am embargoed from saying anything about it until next week. So I can't tell you if it's a totally decent addition to the game or not, because that would just be wrong. Look for more thoughts on it when said embargo lifts.
