Borderlands to get paid DLC, zombies

While it was already apparent to subscribers of 2K Games’ mailing list (who received an email offering the chance to win “The Gearbox Mercenary Weapon Pack DLC”) that Borderlands would have DLC, whether or not paid story DLC would be included was another question.

However, now it’s official: Borderlands‘ first downloadable content is called “The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned”, and will be available later this year for $9.99 or 800 MSP. The press release claims that it is a “full-fledged expansion filled with new enemies, new quests and rare loot drops.”

It seems likely that this is the first of a number of extra DLC chapters, possibly to be released in a similar manner to Fallout 3‘s. This raises the questions of how many expansions are to be released, and whether or not a Game of the Year / collection package will be released.

While the console DLC situation seems simple enough, my question is how it will be delivered to PC gamers of both the retail and digital download variety, given that the game doesn’t use Games for Windows Live.

The news comes while 2K are still advertising Borderlands’ impending release with this great TV spot.
