"an entirely new game mode" with 'Madd Moxxi's Underdome Riot'.
It offers three new Riot Mode arenas, two additional skill-points and an all-new bank for storing that precious loot. On 360 this month's end.
"Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot is an intense single-player or cooperative experience that expands the mayhem by adding three new Riot Mode arenas where players will endure an onslaught of Pandora’s baddest enemies," goes the blurb, reports .
"Working together, players will fend off the masses as they fight for fame, honor, and more importantly, loot." Yes, loot *is* the crux of the universe. It's 800 MSP, or $9.99.
"Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot also adds a new bank feature, which allows players extra storage capacity for when they encounter one of the more than 16 million weapons that Borderlands has to offer; and the ability to acquire two additional skill points as quest rewards, making their characters even more powerful than before."
It'll be out on Xbox 360 first this December 29th, and then on PlayStation 3 January 5th. A PC version of the DLC will be coming but its date is yet to be disclosed. "Think ODST's 'Firefight' or Gears of War's 'Horde Mode.' Cash, prizes and competition!" said Gearbox's Randy Pitchford. "It's like Smash TV in coop FPS, but in the Borderlands."
