Borderlands 2 DLC expansion “Captain Scarlett and Her Pirates Booty” is out on Oct. 16

The rumors are indeed true: Borderlands 2’s very first downloadable expansion will be out next week. Borderlands 2: Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty is the first of four planned expansions, and it’ll be out on Tuesday, October 16th. Season pass holders get the pack for free, while it’ll set other players back a cool $10.

As you can gather from the title, the DLC does involve a lady pirate. As is appropriate for Borderlands, she is actually a desert pirate though, and you sail the sandy dune seas of Oasis across her approximately 8-hour adventure.

Digital Trends has already enjoyed an ample sample of the DLC but our preview won’t run until Monday morning. Check back then for a look at the pleasures of Sand Skiff driving, water questing, and bantering with pirates.

NBA 2K22 is finally here and it's time to tear up those courts! Of course, that's if you already have the game! If you're planning on picking it up, there are a few different editions, and a variety of places to do so, leaving some questions to answer. Which edition of the game is right for you, and what NBA 2K22 bonuses should you expect?

2K22's cover athletes include Luka Doncic, Dirk Nowitzki, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Kevin Durant, with different athletes featured for each edition. New this year, 2K says it revamped the gameplay to deliver faster, more responsive experiences for the player. There have been some significant changes to player movements, and there are more skill-based abilities to keep your offense engaged. Shooting has also been changed a bit, thanks to a new "dynamically resizing" shot window. Defensive AI has been bolstered too, hopefully, creating a more immersive and challenging experience overall. You can read more about the new features and changes on 2K's blog.
