Gearbox Software has just announced the latest downloadable content to hit their newest game, Borderlands 2.

Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty will launch next Tuesday on October 16th, priced at 800 Microsoft Points on the Xbox 360 or $9.99 on the PS3, I’m not sure of a UK price just yet, but it’s likely to be around £7.99.

The new DLC will being extra missions, taking players through a new map named Oasis, which is filled with bandit scum and ruled over by Scarlett the one-eyed Pirate Queen.

Gearboxe’s CEO, Randy Pichford gave all the details in the following quote:

“You can sense the pirate theme across the landscape, even though there’s no water. It’s all dried up. It feels more like Tatooine than an ocean. These bandits have really embraced the pirate lifestyle, and there’s the legend of a treasure. That kicks off this whole adventure that the players can go on.”

Alongside the details is two screenshots, one which is placed above and the other below, but it seems not all has been revealed as some leaked information from Steam files reveals new weapons, bosses, raids and a new level.

The DLC will also be covered by the Borderlands 2 Season Pass, which will make this and four future DLC packs available for free.
