Rumors swirled yesterday about Borderlands 2's first piece of big downloadable content. They're true. The game's first official campaign add-on is all about pirates.

It's called Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty. It will take you to an entirely new area of Pandora, a wasteland that was once a beautiful resort by the ocean called Oasis. There you will meet new characters, embarking on a journey to find Captain Scarlett's treasure and battling pirate bandits and sand worms along the way. Don't worry, you can run most of them over with a sand skiff, the DLC's new vehicle (pictured below).

The DLC will be out on October 16th—same day as the original release date for the Mechromancer character class—and available for $10 on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Or, if you have the $30 season pass, it comes included with that bundle. Hooray!

We'll have hands-on impressions of the campaign DLC next Monday.

I find it hard to get excited about paid DLC released so close to the game's launch. There's always that horrible feeling that this could have just as easily been released as part of the actual game.
