Well, if you weren't excited enough about Borderlands hitting shelves next week, Gearbox has just let the word out on their first piece of DLC for the game. The content is titled "Zombie Island of Dr. Ned" and has players assisting Dr. Ned, a Dr. Frankenstein of sorts, who's accidentally allowed the new region to be overrun by mutant creatures and zombies.

The $10 expansion is the "first in a series" of DLC packs and will be "filled with new enemies, new quests and rare loot drops." It's schedule for release later this year.
