Peter Donnell / 456 days ago
Due to launch in the US on September 18 and internationally on September 21, Borderlands 2 is going to be a big game this year. The original is also a firm favourite in this house and one of the finest co-op shooters available, and with the equation of more = more being applied to it’s successor September can’t come soon enough.
Fans who pre-order the title from participating retailers will get access to the ‘Borderlands 2 Premiere Club’, netting them a number of bonus in-game items, which are detailed below.
2K said the Gearbox developed PS3, Xbox 360 and PC game will be “bigger, better and more badass” than its excellent predecessor
Borderlands 2 features all-new characters, skills, imaginative and diverse new environments with unique missions and enemies and more exciting and fun weapons, equipment and loot than ever before. All of these features come together in a story that takes players to the world of Pandora to take down the notorious Handsome Jack and his corrupt Hyperion Corporation as a solo campaign or with up to four co-operative players.
Borderlands 2 will allow friends to play together locally via split-screen, as well as online with drop-in-drop-out capabilities. With seamless cooperative gameplay and action, Borderlands 2 is extremely accessible for gamers and their friends to play alone or together in a variety of configurations.
“Borderlands 2 is a passion project, through and through,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “The result is a sequel that has improved every successful aspect of Borderlands while innovating with an all-new experience.”
Gamers who pre-order Borderlands 2 from participating retailers will gain access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, allowing them to download the Gearbox Gun Pack, a Golden Key and the Vault Hunter’s Relic. The Gearbox Gun Pack is a collection of unique guns to help players begin their journey on Pandora. The Golden Key is an in-game item used to unlock a rare item in the mysterious Golden Sanctuary Loot Chest found in Borderlands 2. The Vault Hunter’s Relic is an in-game item that boosts players’ gear-hunting fortune while playing solo or teaming up with friends.
