Yesterday we mentioned that the new Borderlands DLC, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, would be out on Xbox Live today. Unfortunately this is no longer the case, with the release date instead being moved to tomorrow.

No reason has been given, but AceyBongos announced the move on his Twitter.

So looks like the new Borderlands DLC will be hitting tomorrow after all – keep an eye on the man himself over at @GeneralKnoXX – @AceyBongos

General Knoxx himself also had this to say:

Well, time tables got all moved around. Looks like the invasion is on tomorrow. Be seeing you (and killing you!) then. – @GeneralKnoXX

24 hours is no big deal, and you can look forward to some mid-week Borderlands fun sometime tomorrow. The PC and PSN releases are still set for Thursday.

Just a heads up that the next piece of Borderlands DLC, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, will be released tomorrow on Xbox Live. PC and PSN will get the content on Thursday.

The DLC will set you back 800 MS points on XBL, and $8.99 on PC and PSN. The latter amount is in dollars because the UK pricing is yet to be announced, but we’ll be sure to find out before Thursday.

The new content raises the level cap to 61, along with new enemies and locations to plunder.

2K has announced that Bioshock 2 will get its first piece of DLC next month. The “Sinclair Solutions Test Pack” will be multiplayer focused, extending the level cap to level 50 with more rank rewards thrown in.

Two new playable characters, Louie McGraff and Oscar Calraca, will be lining up to get shot in the face whilst concurrently being set on fire. Plus, there will also be 20 new trials, a third weapon upgrade for each weapon and five additional masks.

The DLC will go for 400 MS points on Xbox Live and Games for Windows Live, and £3.19 on PSN. No exact release date has been given, but we’re sure it won’t be long before one is.

If you’d rather have more single-player content then 2K assures you that some will be on the day. This will include “more narrative, new tools and new challenges that extend the lore and fiction of the failed Utopia under the sea.”

Check out three screenshots from the upcoming DLC in our gallery below.

The game will sport a whole new engine, a new combat system and deeper diplomacy options amongst other things. It will also have an “extensive suite of community, modding and multiplayer elements”, which is all great stuff.

Expect more info soon, but for now colour this author excited!

2K Games have announced that Bioshock 2, the sequel to critically-acclaimed first-person shooter Bioshock, will be released on the 9th February 2010.

Unlike its predecessor, BioShock 2 will be available on all formats (360, PS3 and PC) when released.
Set ten years after the events of the original BioShock, a monster has been recently been snatching little girls and bringing them back to the undersea city of Rapture. You will then have to step into the boots of the most iconic of figures, the ‘Big Daddy’, to make your way through the decrepit city, chasing an unseen foe, and also marking the debut of the ninja-quick ‘Big Sisters’.

Multiplayer will also be available, as the player acts as plasmid test subject for a company called ‘Sinclair Solutions’.  As the player progresses through the multiplayer maps like Mercury Suites and Kashmir Restaurant they will either have the ability to hack security bots or search for the Big Daddy suit.
