Borderlands ‘The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned’ DLC announced


Zombies are basically a standard in games nowadays, with games as high as the likes of Call of Duty even including some sort of zombie mode. Borderlands is no different as publisher 2K Games announces ‘The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned’, the first piece of downloadable content for Gearbox’s first-person role-playing game.

‘Zombie Island’ is “a full-fledged expansion”, according to 2K, pitting players against zombies and other creatures that seem to run frequent in this area. Players are tasked with a mission to keep the workers of Jakobs Cove alive, while facing “new enemies, new quests and rare loot drops”.

Borderlands releases on October 26, 2009 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The ‘Zombie Island’ downloadable content will arrive “later this year.”

Screenshots of ‘Zombie Island’ can be seen at the gallery.
