Borderlands 2 to ship uncut worldwide

By Brenna Hillier, Wednesday, 1 August 2012 06:48 GMT

Gearbox has announced that all territories – including the notoriously censor-friendly Australia and Germany – will receive the same, gore-filled version of Borderlands 2.

“We’re happy to announce that Borderlands 2 will be uncut all over the world,” the developer’s blog announced.

“Some fans will remember that the first Borderlands game was a bit toned down in certain territories compared to the rest of the world. No longer! Do you live in Germany? Australia? Bandits will be just as likely to explode into bloody chunks of awesomeness as they will be in Canada or England (which is to say: very likely.)”

Additionally, Gearbox took the opportunity to announce a Gore Toggle option – so if you’re not keen on afore-mentioned bloody chunks, you’ll be able to switch them off. Good for playing with the kiddies, then.

Borderlands 2 arrives on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 18 in the US and September 21 elsewhere.
