Claptrap's New Robot Revolution announced

360 News | Viva la Claptrap Revolutione!
For those who have finished the Gearbox Software loot-and-shoot-a-thon, Borderlands, they've wondered just where that final scene fit in the grand scheme of things. Well, you can stop wondering. Following some intense and ultimately correct Internet speculation, 2K Games and Gearbox Software have announced the fourth downloadable add-on for Borderlands, Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution. It also explains why only the first two add-ons came in a retail bundle...

On the heels of the game changing The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, the could-use-a-tweak Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot and hilariously but massive The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution will be set for release in September on all relevant download services at the usual prices of 800 Microsoft Points for the Xbox 360, or AU$12.95 and NZ$15.50 for both PC and PlayStation 3.

Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution requires players to try and suppress a deadly Claptrap revolution. They'll find themselves caught in the crosshairs of a deadly civil war between the Hyperion Corporation’s well-armed armadas and the ever-amassing army of homicidal Claptraps led by the 'cunning and dastardly' kung-fu expert known only as Ninja Assassin. Players must put aside their past differences with the Hyperion Corporation, namely the organization’s repeated attempts to wipe them from existence, to thwart the mechanical uprising.

Aside from the new single and multiplayer experiences, Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution offers more than 20 new missions, many fresh enemies, including original boss battles, waves of homicidal Claptraps, well-armed Hyperion soldiers, and local creatures that have been 'Claptrap-ified' - including crab-traps, rakk-traps and skag-trapps. Players will earn an additional 10 skill points for a total of 71 available skill tree points, and three more backpack slots for additional weapons.

“A year ago Borderlands was an untested brand that through hard work and a lot of passion, turned out to be one of the best-selling, claptastic and skagtacular games we have ever created,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “A year later, we are releasing our fourth DLC installment, Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution, which illustrates our enthusiasm for creating highly entertaining content that enhances a franchise. In addition to serving as the perfect bookend to the original game, what gamer doesn’t love a kung-fu-wielding Ninja Assassin Claptrap with nunchuck skills?”

Now that Gearbox have the Duke Nukem franchise, I'd like to see the Duke make a cameo in a future Borderlands release. I think the two franchises are remarkably compatible...

The Borderlands DLC has been hit and miss, Mad Moxi was terrible but Secret Armory was typical Borderlands awesomeness. I really hope its more like the last one.

They dont have the franchise, the rumor only suggests they are finishing off the game. To the best of anyones knowledge, 3D Realms still own the franchise.

I hope that the DLC gets put onto a disc with the General Knoxx content like the first two DLC packs did. That way I can have it in physical form and get it for cheaper than what i'd pay for the digital version. Hurrah!

Yeah, I really need to play General Knoxx like now...

Claptrap's owned in the original.. all of the moments I actually laughed was due to a line from a claptrap. They are also immensely cute and are reminiscent of R2D2, which I guess is the point..

I've avoided the 2nd and 3rd DLCs, due to budget contraints mainly, but this one is looking like something I will need to grab.

Having recently sold my copy of Borderlands, I'll quickly pick up a 'all DLC' release if they ever do so. I like to own physical copies icon_smile.gif
