I say, sir, is that a ridiculously massive gun in your hand?

Looking for more Borderlands 2 goodness to play through? Looks like you’ll get your wish on the Mac, as the Borderlands 2 DLC, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, is now ready for your downloading pleasure for a mere $9.99. You’ll need Borderlands 2 to play, of course, but you’ve already got that, right?

This third DLC pack for Borderlands 2 takes place after the main campaign, and will get you to enter an uncharted territory deep in the swamps of Pandora. A massive Hyperion ship has crashed, and–obviously–it’s got tons of loot in it.

You’ll need to blast your way through armies of savages, mutated creatures, and the mysteriously diabolical Professor Nakayama to get to the treasure. You’ll have to defend Hammerlock’s hunting lodge, man turrents and fan boats to take out enemy vehicles. Oh, and you’ll have to babysit Hammerlocks pet skag, who’s really just interested i ripping you to shreds. You’ll also find crazy big overpowered guns during your new adventures that you can use back in the main storyline and online with other players.

Borderlands 2 is a rollicking fun action shooter with fun RPG and weapon upgrade mechanics, so more of a good thing is just that: good. Adding another bit of DLC, like Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage before it, should go down well for fans of the game and anyone looking to extend the experience just that bit more. You can get it for $9.99 on the Mac Game Store or Steam.

Along with the new Hammerlock DLC release, Aspyr announced today that Borderlands 2 has gone cross-platform, meaning you can now play the game online with those who own the PC version.

The cross-platform update doesn’t sound like a big deal, but there’s not as many players on Mac as there are on PC, so this gives them access to more people to form parties with, which is a huge chunk of the fun with Borderlands. If you bought the Mac App Store version of Borderlands 2 though you’re out of luck, as the cross-platform update is only available on Steam right now.
