I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m not a fan of FPS (please don’t throw anything at me). In fact, it’s probably one of my least favorite genres (please don’t hate me). However, there are those occasional FPS that I actually enjoy playing. Call of Jaurez: Bound in Blood, MW2, etc. And although I’ve never played it, Borderlands looks like it could be one of them.
Anyhoo, enough about me, what I wanted to tell you guys is that the first downloadable expansion for Borderlands is available now at the Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlaystationNetwork. And guess what its called? The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned! YES! Zombies!
The story goes like this:
“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.”
As you can see form the screenshots, the color pallette is very much different from the game. But it still looks sweet!
I have to admit that though I’m not a fan of FPS, I am constantly made jealous of all the expansion packs released for FPS. It seems like FPS games get way more expansion packs than third person shooters/adventure games. And when I say expansion packs, I don’t mean new outfits or weapons to use in the game, but a new, actual addition/entirely new storyline. I’m still keeping my fingers crossed for a RE5 expansion!
