The Zombie Island of Dr Ned – The First Borderlands Expansion

2K Games have just announced that the first DLC for their visually idiosyncratic and lovely RPG action game Borderlands is now available for download.

It is called “The Zombie Island Of Dr Ned”, and introduces a peculiar gothic-horror element into the post-apocalyptic game world.

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.

It looks… well, gorgeous might not be quite the right word:

I’d be very interested to hear what readers who’ve been playing Borderlands since release think of the game, and of this abrupt change of scenery. The game really does look like no other, but how does it play?
