Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, a pirate-themed add-on campaign for Borderlands 2, will be released on October 16, 2K Games and Gearbox have announced (via AP).

The downloadable content focuses on the one-eyed pirate queen Captain Scarlett and is set amid an expansive desert that features a bandit-filled shanty town called Oasis.

"You can sense the pirate theme across the landscape, even though there's no water," said Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford. "It's all dried up. It feels more like Tatooine than an ocean. These bandits have really embraced the pirate lifestyle, and there's the legend of a treasure. That kicks off this whole adventure that the players can go on."

In the new campaign players will battle against new enemies such as sand worms, hover across the desert terrain in the new sand skill vehicle, and collect a new currency called seraph crystals. Even those yet to finish the main game can jump into Captain Scarlett.

Expect to pay $9.99 for the new content, or opt for the season pass priced $29.99 which includes this plus three other DLC campaigns.
