Base Game

This product requires the base game Borderlands on Steam in order to play. You can not run this product without this game.

It all started when the Hyperion Corporation decided it had enough of the greedy, haggling treasure hunters on Pandora. They were always selling, selling, selling and hardly ever buying high-quality, previously-owned munitions. This was acceptable when there was The Vault to hunt for and Eridian Guardians to clear out of the way, but now they were just a drain on the local economy and resources. Hyperion, like most corporations, was neither good nor evil. It was all about profit, and now the most profitable action was to unclog the drain. Of course, Hyperion already had just such a contingency plan already in place.
Unfortunately, the treasure hunters were one tough hairball. They had torn through thousands of beasts, bandits and corporate soldiers on Pandora. The direct route wasn’t going to work. So they decided to activate the top-secret, Interplanetary Ninja Assassin Claptrap!
The plan was to have the Ninja Assassin take out the treasure hunters in more subtle ways: backstabbing, poisoning, spreading catty rumors, etc. However, the Ninja Assassin was smarter than they thought. He was self-aware, and he didn’t like what he saw -- claptraps everywhere being used for target practice or as menial corporate servants.
So instead of taking on the treasure hunters, he decided to take on Hyperion. He rallied the claptraps to his cause, and the claptraps overran much of Hyperion Corporation’s territory. Of course, our heroes were trapped in the middle. They are eventually hired by Mr. Blake (VP of Mercenary Relations and Tourism for Hyperion Corporation) to quell the revolution. While the treasure hunters had no love lost for Hyperion Corporation, the claptraps were assimilating all life on Pandora and converting them into claptraps. In the end, they must stop the Interplanetary Ninja Assassin Claptrap in order to release his control over all of Pandora’s claptraps and collect their reward, of course.
New Features:
  • Fight waves of once-friendly, now-homicidal claptraps (ranged, melee and kamikaze).
  • Encounter claptrap-ified creatures including crab-traps, rakk-traps, skag-traps and a variety of bandit-traps.

Number of Missions/Areas:
  • 7 new main missions
  • 14 new side missions

Multiplayer options may have changed, please see the main title for more information

With GameSpy's online services set to shut down on May 31, 2K Games has stepped forward and announced which of its online-enabled multiplayer games will survive the closure. Borderlands, Civilization III, and Civilization IV, and their respective expansions will all begin making the transition from GameSpy servers to Steamworks in the coming days, while several other games will see their multiplayer servers go down with the GameSpy ship.

Before Gearbox Software came up the look and personalities of Borderlands characters Roland, Mordecai, and Lilith, they devised the basic archetype of each class, with each originally represented in art as a blockhead, a conehead and a spherehead. Borderlands franchise director Matt Armstrong and lead character designer Jonathan Hemingway were at SXSW offering a behind the scenes look at the early stages of how the in-game team came together. The designers knew they wanted a Doom-style shooter g...
