Borderlands 2 is getting Tiny Tina DLC, and an official release date.
The latest DLC for Borderlands 2 has just landed, and new DLC is already in the works. Krieg the Psycho was released just today, giving gamers a chance to play as a “good guy” version of the melee-heavy enemies you face in the game. However, alongside the new character released today, Tiny Tina has been announced as a followup, making yet another addition to the roster.
Tiny Tina doesn’t come alone, though. She comes alongside a new mission called Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep. Regarding the tendency of Borderlands 2 to rely on internet memes to get a laugh, Tiny Tina isn’t just a new character, but the ultimate walking meme. The image the announcement was released with is a picture of a schoolgirl covered in steampunk clothes and a band-aid on her nose as she looks longingly back at you. The caption on the image states her name and the words, “Playtime’s over.”
So now not only do Borderlands 2 fans have a new character to look forward to, but also a whole new map and mission, if you can call it that. Dragon Keep is basically a stage where you play a table game parody of Dungeons and Dragons, with Tiny Tina playing the role of dungeon master, rolling the dice, changing names and character attributes on the fly. This is the fourth campaign in Borderlands 2 and quite unexpected for a title that’s about running around and killing Psychos and such. Here’s hoping the humor keeps it interesting.
Borderlands 2 is expected to get the new Tiny Tina DLC before you know it on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. In case you haven’t peeked below already, the release date for Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep is set for June 25. There is no set price yet, but you can expect to grab it for around $10 to $15.
