Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel gets Claptastic Voyage DLC on March 24 (update)

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel developer 2K Australia is adding a new campaign to the shooter, Claptastic Voyage, on March 24, the studio and co-developer Gearbox Software announced today during a panel at PAX East 2015.

The downloadable add-on will also be released that day for Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, which launches March 24 as well. The Handsome Collection brings Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Claptastic Voyage won't be on the Handsome Collection disc, but will be available as a download. You can see two screenshots and one piece of artwork from Claptastic Voyage below.

Claptastic Voyage focuses on Claptrap, and will serve as a bridge between The Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 2, said a developer from 2K Australia. Handsome Jack wants a powerful, mysterious item that's hidden within Claptrap's source code. So the Borderlands 2 villain digitizes the Vault Hunters and sends them into Claptrap's mind, which is where the expansion takes place. Players will be "exploring the deepest recesses and furthest corners of Claptrap's mind ... his hopes, dreams and stupidity," said 2K Australia.

The Claptastic Voyage add-on also includes Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2. It will raise the level cap by 10 more levels to 70, and will give each character 10 more skill points to earn. Together, they form the fourth piece of DLC for the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel season pass, which is available for $29.99. Players who don't own the season pass can pick up Claptastic Voyage and Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 in one bundle for $9.99.

Update: You can check out a trailer for Claptastic Voyage and Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 below.
