Borderlands 2 Creature Slaughter Dome and Collector's Edition Content Now Available

Borderlands 2 content previously exclusive to certain retailers and collector's editions is now available to everyone, for a price. The Creature Slaughter Dome will allow players to compete in a bonus Circle of Slaughter challenge located at the Wildlife Exploitation Reserve. The Circle of Slaughter challenges have been around since the first Borderlands. Players must face waves of  progressively more difficult enemies in an enclosed arena. It's basically a survivor mode.

This Week in Co-Op: Quality vs Quantity With the Help of Borderlands and a Friend

It’s been a tough few weeks for me. After losing my job last week, I was having trouble focusing on what I should be doing next with my career. Obviously it’s all about finding my next job, but times are tight and I've been struggling to have things "work out". Luckily, Co-Optimus has been keeping me busy with work while I job hunt. Needless to say, I’ve been doing a bunch of gaming, which has also lead me to falling in love with a series that I had previously chosen to ignore.

Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition 50% Off on Amazon Today

Borderlands, a Co-Optimus favorite, is on sale.  Amazon.com has the Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition for 50% off today only.  The Borderlands GOTY edition normally goes for $39.99, but now you can pick it up for twenty bucks.  Each DLC of Borderlands was originally $10 when first released, so frivolous gamers could have easily spent $100 dollars on the game and all of the DLC together.  Boy, you sure were smart to wait for the price to drop!  Now you can pick up Borderlands, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, and Claptrap's New Robot Revolution, all for $20.00. You can read our impressions of each linked DLC.  For $20 dollars this is an absolute steal.

More to Come For Borderlands?

In a recent interview with NowGamer.com Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford alluded to even more content for the 4 player shoot-and-loot Borderlands franchise.  Whether or not the new content is even more DLC or a proper sequel remains to be determined.  In the interview, Pitchford acknowledges that the Borderlands team originally planned for the The Secret Armory of General Knoxx to be the last piece of DLC, which was then followed up by last September's Claptrap's New Robot Revolution.

New Content for PlayStation Plus Members Includes Borderlands Trial

There's a boat-load of new content for PlayStation Plus subscribers in January and February.  One of the new items is a full game trial of Borderlands, still one of the best co-op games around.  There are a ton of other deals and sales.  If you take advantage of all the savings it looks as if the Plus membership would almost pay for itself in just a few months.  If you sign up by Groundhog's Day (February 2nd, for those of you not dependent on archaic seasonal predictions) you can get 15 months for the price of 12. What are you waiting for?  As usual, non-paying PlayStation Network users will get nothing and like it.
