    Borderlands™ 2 Kicks Off New Era of Shoot and Loot
    on September 18, 2012

    Pre-ordered games include exclusive access to Borderlands 2 Premiere Club,
    including in-game items


    New York, NY, February 22, 2012 – 2K Games and Gearbox Software announced today that Borderlands™ 2, the sequel to the multi-million unit selling breakout hit, Borderlands™, will be available on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows-based PC in North America on September 18, 2012 and internationally on September 21, 2012. Currently in development by Gearbox Software, Borderlands 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed four-player cooperative shooter-looter that combined intense first-person mayhem with role-playing gameplay. In addition, 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.

    Living up to the mantra “bigger, better and more badass,” Borderlands 2 features all-new characters; skills; imaginative, 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 cooperative players.

    “The addictive gameplay and shooting and looting mayhem of the first Borderlands is back and better than ever in Borderlands 2, taking the franchise to an entirely new level,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “With more guns, more enemies, more missions, an engaging story and all-new characters, Borderlands 2 promises to bring a new era to gaming this fall.”

    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.

    Ok the golden key thing is kinda rubbing me the wrong way. This golden key, is it found in the game at all or is it only unlockable through preorder? Are normal buyers going to come across a chest they simply cannot open because they refused to give Gearbox their money on a whim?

    I really really hate preorder incentives like this. I figured nothing could get as bad as Rage's preorder double barrel shotgun.

    If the game is as whimsical as the launch trailer, it should be fun. I guess the preorder thing doesn't bother me that much anymore; I've taken to buying the game, then pirating the preorder content.

    They did the same thing with "Duke". Seems like a way to get sales before anyone finds out the game is not what it should be.

    That's not entirely true.

    With Duke they gave out a demo and access to the Duke Club to anyone that purchased Borderlands before a certain point. There was no requirement to purchase Duke before the demo was available.

    When I played Borderlands on the PC (I usually played splitscreen on the 360 or solo on the 360) it was mildly annoying that I had to find my old Gamespy account again, but I never really had an actual problem with it, tbh.

    The game itself screwed us a couple of times, like when it always disconnected one of us because he had less RAM and took a little longer to load. And when he would reconnect at some point the game said he was too far behind in the quest line to complete quests with us... It's things like that that need fixing.

    But it's nice to have it all come together under the big steam umbrella. The less annoying additional stuff I have to deal with, the better.
