Gearbox Software has definitely gotten into the holiday spirit, as it has teamed up with 2K Games to release some special new content for its first-person shooter Borderlands 2.

The Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler is now available to download on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Priced at $2.99, this new mission requires all the firepower you can get as you take on a giant mutant turkey in a competition hosted by the nefarious Mr. Torgue. You can check out all the action in the trailer below.

What's next – a crazed Santa running wild for Christmas? Hey, come to think of it, that sounds like a great idea…

Borderlands 2 is available now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
