Borderlands 2 DLC, 'How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day' Available Dec. 17

A Borderlands 2 DLC will be released on Dec. 17 for the Xbox 360, PS3, Mac, and PC for $2.99.

The DLC is called How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day and is the third part of the Headhunter packs, which includes unlockable skins, heads, and new missions.

How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day is a Christmas-themed DLC, where the main villain is Mr. Tinder Snowflake, a snowman. The story takes place in Gingerton, reported IGN.

Game developer Gearbox previously put out two Headhunter holiday themed DLC's, Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler (Thanksgiving), and TK Baha's Bloody Harvest (Halloween).

Yesterday Borderlands 2 became available for free download for PS Plus members.

"Borderlands 2, one of 2012's most critically acclaimed titles, is entering the Instant Game Collection tomorrow. Pick one of four new vault hunters (I went with Maya the Siren) and grab your randomly generated weapon, 'cause a pesky psychopath called Handsome Jack is terrorizing the world of Pandora (but hey, he does it in style). Borderlands 2 excels in co-op mode, so team up with up some friends to explore the land. There are plenty of things to mow down for experience points and nothing feels better than a rare loot drop, plus you can customize your character to dish out more damage or provide support for you & your friends," the PlayStation Blog posted yesterday.

Subscribers to PlayStation Plus will have new Instant Game Collections available to them this month as Sony adds a number of PS3 and PS Vita titles.

Games that were added right away are Borderlands 2, Dyad, and Grid 2. For the Vita, Urban Trial Freestyle, and Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed will came next. These titles are all for free download throughout the month.
