After a disappointing second add on for Borderlands, Gearbox has officially announced a 3rd one. The next Borderlands DLC called, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, will be the largest add on so far. There will be 44 new missions, new enemies, and 3 new vehicles. The story in The Secret Armory of General Knoxx picks up soon after the main story line of the original game. The level cap will also be raised 11 levels to 61.
New enemies will include Lance Assassins with laser swords, Lancer Medics to heal enemies, Rocketeers on jet packs, as well as some new alien mech type enemies.
The 3 new vehicles will consist of the monster truck and the racer, both two-seaters, and a four-seater called the APC. The Apc will have one driver, a turret operator, a mine layer, and an area attack operator.
As usual, there will be a ton of new weapons to find. A new, super rare drop being called “pearlescent” will be the most sough after loot. There has also been some facts about the story and the people encountered, however I won’t report on it here, because I don’t want to even read it and “spoil” it for myself. If you haven’t played Borderlands yet, you really should. It is, in my opinion, one of the most under rated and overlooked games of all time. There hasn’t been any official release date yet, however it hinted to be very soon. For you Tweeters, General Knoxx has his own Twitter page that you can follow here.
