Well it finally happened. Gearbox Software finally announced the sequel to their award winning game Borderlands, aptly titled Borderlands 2. According to the offical site:
“…Borderlands 2 features all new characters, skills, environments, enemies, weapons and equipment, which come together in an ambitiously crafted story. Players will reveal secrets, and escalate mysteries of the Borderlands universe as they adventure across the unexplored new areas of Pandora.”
Even though Borderlands 2 is set for a probable 2012 (maybe 2013) release on PC, 360, and PS3, you can still pre-order it now on the Borderlands 2 official website.
Also, if you want a better look at Borderlands 2, Gearbox Software and 2K Games will be showing off their product at Gamescom 2011 from August 17 – August 21, and at PAX Prime (Booth #3417) from August 26 – August 28. And in the meantime, you can read about Borderlands 2 in the current September issue of Game Informer.
So, lets hope that Borderlands 2 feels like an actual sequel rather than a glorified DLC expansion, but judging by Gearbox’s track record, it should all be fine…hopefully.
