Borderlands 2 dated for September, new trailer here

Wednesday, 22nd February 2012 13:02 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Gearbox has confirmed that Borderlands 2 will release on September 18 in the US and on September 21 elsewhere.

Borderlands 2 will release for PC, 360 and PS3 on September 18 in the US and internationally on September 21, 2K said today.

The publisher has also confirmed that fans who pre-order the title from participating retailers will receive access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, including rewarding in-game items and bonuses.

The RPG-shooter sequel will be “bigger, better and more badass,” apparently with new characters, new skills, new environments, new weapons and new loot. All the news.

The story revolves around players again shooting their way through Pandora “to take down the notorious Handsome Jack and his corrupt Hyperion Corporation”. Again, the main pull is four-way co-op.

Split-screen and drop-in-drop-out online play will be included.

Pre-ordering will give access to 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,” said a rep.

“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.”

    96.5% more WUB WUB? I’m sold! Also, Ninjas!

    But seriously, AWESOME trailer. This is how you make a trailer. Show the characters, explain the plot and add Claptrap dancing.

    Trailer is definitely too long.

    Hope there is an actually story this time, because that’s why i stopped playing the first Borderlands.

    Still no customization for the appearance?

    I don’t wanna spoil the fun and excitement here cause best believe, i’m excited too, looks awesome. But boy…am i getting tired of Dubstep already, it’s quite clearly the new ‘in’ thing for gametrailers these days.

    @15: Is it dubstep? Because people also complained about dubstep on the last FarCry 3 Trailer, which actually didn’t feature dubstep.

    Hmmmm…well it seemed similar to what they used on the Syndicate trailer. If it’s not dubstep, my bad…totally my bad. Whatever it is, i’m getting bored of it, it’s no big deal at the end of the day. It’s just a trailer, and i KNOW i will be loving this game.
