The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned

  • The Jakobs Corporation’s little haven away from the badlands of Borderlands promises a relaxing experience for all visitors. All rumors of mutant skags, half eaten torsos and decaying zombies are probably false, most likely.  But, in the case they turn out to be true, we recommend purchasing firearms from conveniently located Jakobs Brand Vending Machines.  Please aim for the head.
  • Dozens of new missions to explore and loot - hours of new single and multiplayer gameplay.
  • New enemy types to blast away and dismember, but watch out, those disassembled parts can still tear you apart…muhahahaha!

Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot
