The First DLC for the PC version of Borderlands has been released today after a few weeks ‘delay’. Console users have already been playing “The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned” for a little while now, and Gearbox just let go the word that its available for PC.
As a whole I am not impressed with Gearbox’s PC Support for this game – for something that was touted pre-release as having a separate PC development and a PC specific UI, the game falls short. It is fun to run around and shoot stuff and pick up new guns, but I like game companies that 1) communicate with all of their customers (in this case console and PC), and 2) stick to their word.
Anyway, if you have been waiting for the DLC pack to come to the PC – you can purchase it now on Steam and via the Borderlands website. Heres a small caveat though folks, apparently the DLC has an activation limit imposed… even the Steam version.
Who ever heard of DLC having an activation limit based DRM? Expansions.. Yes. Full Games.. Yes. DLC?! I rarely get too worked up about games and game company practices, but Gearbox is heading towards my waste basket. Sorry, just telling it like I feel.
