Now this my friends, this is how you create DLC. I’ve now completed this on all three difficulty mode, and it got better with every run through. In a word, this DLC is “great”.
The game is told/narrated by Tiny Tina, and gives the impression that you, as the player are playing through a game of Bunkers and Badasses (which I assume is Pandoras version of D&D). Without going into spoilers, your quest as the vault hunter is to rescue the queen from the evil sorcerer.
As you can probably tell from the title, the game is medieval themed, with knights, dragons and lots of old worldy stuff. It’s actually pretty amazing how they’ve managed to adapt the Borderlands universe to feel like it fits in the old world, it somehow doesn’t feel strange that you’re fighting knights and sorcerer with an over powered sniper rifle.
Without a doubt, the best part of this game is the storytelling, and to be honest, really made me want to try out table top gaming. The way the story twisted and turned coming to the conclusion it did really made me feel I’ve been missing out for all these years.
If you’ve yet to complete Borderlands 2, I highly suggest you don’t start this DLC, as it contains major spoilers concerning the ending of the main game. These particular story items were told very well, and with the investment I’ve put into the Borderlands universe, felt like it tied everything up nicely, similar to how Mass Effect 3: Citadel did.
Unlike the other DLC offerings, there are 10 trophies to collect, non of which require you to grind. I will however be running through it a number of times, on Ultimate Vault Hunter mode to see if I can get some of the new legendary grenades, including Magic Missiles, Chain Lightening and Fireballs. Currently I only have the blue drops, but looking forward to giving the legendary ones a go.
This for me was the perfect end to what had been a highly enjoyable experience. I have now unlocked every trophy the game has to offer, and still find myself dropping back in to have a play.
