2K Games announced today that the first game add-on content for Borderlands, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, is now available for download from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStationNetwork for 800 Microsoft Points and Â£6.29, respectively. Developed by Gearbox Software, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned is the first in a series of electrifying downloadable expansions that continue the exhilarating Borderlands experience while upholding the franchiseâ€™s core gameplay elements.
Tasked with keeping the workers of Jakobs Cove alive, Dr. Ned does his job a little too well, creating flesh eating zombies and other ghastly abominations that now run rampant in this region. Players will have to work alongside Dr. Ned as they embark on an explosive journey to cure the decaying inhabitants of Jakobs Cove in this expansion filled with new formidable enemies, new grueling quests and rare loot drops.
â€œWe are very excited to present fans of the highly acclaimed Borderlands with the first expansion,â€ said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. â€œThe Zombie Island of Dr. Ned presents a bold new storyline that entertains and excites, and simultaneously ensures that fans still receive the same great gameplay experience that made the original game a success.â€
Featuring extensive co-op integration that seamlessly blends the single-player and multiplayer experiences, Borderlands allows players to freely join or leave each otherâ€™s games at any time for collaborative mayhem or the freedom to choose to play in full single-player mode to experience the world on their own. Borderlands also includes a groundbreaking weapon generation system that offers a near infinite variety of weapons to the player. Borderlands combines these fan favorite features with addictive non-stop action to form a breakthrough experience that challenges the conventions of modern shooters and RPGs.
