The Robot Revolution Begins Today!

Official press release below:

New York, NY – September 28, 2010 – 2K Games and Gearbox Software announced
today that fans can now join the downloadable insurgency that is taking
place on Pandora in Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution*. Recruits can download
the exciting fourth add-on content pack in the BorderlandsT series and take
on the evil Ninja Assassin Claptrap via Xbox LIVER Marketplace for the Xbox
360R video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for 800 Microsoft
Points and the PlayStationRNetwork for the PlayStationR3 computer
entertainment system and PC for $9.99.

Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution invites recruits to attempt to beat down the
deadly Claptrap revolution either as a lone gunman or in co-op teams of four
treasure hunters using many of the more than 17 million unique weapons
available in the game. Brave volunteers will find themselves caught in the
lethal crosshairs between the Hyperion Corporation’s fortified armadas and
the ever-growing army of homicidal Claptraps and “Claptrap-ified” enemies
led by one of the most eagerly awaited characters in the franchise’s history
– the cunning Ninja Assassin Claptrap.

Like its best-selling add-on predecessors, Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution
offers extensive co-op integration that seamlessly melds single and
multiplayer experiences, while continuing the most explosive
Role-Playing-Shooter fun imaginable. Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution
provides more than 20 new missions to score epic loot and tons of fresh
enemies to obliterate, including new and unique takes on previous boss
battles, hordes of maniacal Claptraps and indigenous beasts that have been
“Claptrap-ified”. Fans can earn an additional two skill points for a total
of 61 available skill tree points, and six more backpack slots for
additional highly persuasive weapons and many, many hours of enjoyment.

Borderlands, rated M for Mature by the ESRB, is currently available for the
Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 system and PC. The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned*, Mad
Moxxi’s Underdome Riot* and The Secret Armory of General Knoxx* add-on packs
