Windsor, UK – November 25, 2009 – 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 PlayStation®Network for 800 Microsoft Points and £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 franchise’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.
“We are very excited to present fans of the highly acclaimed Borderlands with the first expansion,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “The 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.”
Requires standalone Borderlands product in order to be played.
