Today Borderlands 2 players can go on a safari with Sir Hammerlock. Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt, the third story-based DLC released for the game, is available for download on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Big Game Hunt introduces a new region called Aegrus for players to explore. Players will track down Slagged Spores and Vampire Witch Doctors in these swamps. In the new story quests, they'll also face off against the Hyperion Corporation's Professor Nakayama and a massive cave beast.

"Claptrap needed work and Sir Hammerlock needs help, so Borderlands 2 players are called to action," added Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. "Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt is a new, original campaign expansion to the Borderlands 2 experience featuring awesome new content including a new fan boat vehicle that can be rigged with a badass flamethrower to help fight tons of new beasts and tribal enemies and take their loot."

The Big Game Hunt expansion costs $10, or 800 MS Points, to download. You could also opt for the $30 Season Pass and get access to four story-based DLC at a discount. You'll be able to download the Mr. Torgue and Captain Scarlett content right away along with Hammerlock. You'll get the fourth, unnamed DLC when it's released.

Gearbox says that the fourth DLC for Borderlands 2 will arrive by June. That could potentially be the last new content for the game. However, the studio previously said that they might release even more DLC including new character classes.
