Borderlands: The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned

Fittingly for TSA’s Zombie Thursday, Borderland’s first DLC will be beating down the doors of the PSN mall today. Less fittingly it was witnessed shambling onto the Xbox LIVE Marketplace yesterday, but I like to put TSA and PS3 ahead of 360 so you get to read about it today.

Already on the US PSN Store thanks to this week’s Tuesday update, which was due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the DLC will set you back 800 Microsoft Points or £6.29 off the PSN.  Here is how the publisher describes the DLC:


Tasked with keeping the workers of Jakobs Cove alive, Dr. Ned does his job a little too well, creating flesh eating zombies and other ghastly abominations that now run rampant in this region. Players will have to work alongside Dr. Ned as they embark on an explosive journey to cure the decaying inhabitants of Jakobs Cove in this expansion filled with new formidable enemies, new grueling quests and rare loot drops.

Borderlands (see our review) took many, especially and most pleasingly many analysts, by surprise with its sales success and critical reception leading to reports that stock was running low in some areas.  Keeping to the zombie theme, no matter how tenuously, Borderlands’ success so far has already led to Gearbox’s Creative Director, Mike Neumann, saying “Borderlands 2 seems like a no-brainer to me.”

Resisting the urge to make any more vague zombie-related links I will just leave you with the trailer for the DLC…
