Borderlands 2: Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt leaked

Borderlands 2: Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt leakedStill trawling Pandora for the best loot? Good – Borderlands 2 is all kinds of awesome. And even though Mr Torgue’s Campaign Of Carnage has only just landed – with a bang, no less – the next expansion has already been let slip.

Dubbed Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, this will be the third of four planned DLC packs. Well, the four covered by the Season Pass, at least. That’s not to say there won’t be more and at the rate Gearbox is going, that seems almost inevitable. Still, little is known about this new pack beyond its name and its three new Achievements. It hasn’t even been formally announced yet – the only way we know about it is because some enterprising code fishermen came across the name and Achievements in the latest patch. This happened with the Mr Torgue pack too, giving us little reason to doubt this news.

Borderlands 2′s DLC seems to be mirroring that of its predecessor – first an odd side-story then arena-based content – and if that trend continues, Big Game Hunt should be the pack that ups the level cap. Fingers crossed. We’ve been level 50 for ages now and have some awesome builds ready to go just as soon as we can snag a few more Skill Points.

The Mr Torgue pack was discovered in the same manner around a month before it was officially announced by Gearbox, arriving some two weeks after that. Assuming we see similar timing here, expect to be getting your hunt on by the end of January at the latest.
