Borderlands 2 Questions

MattGardner |  Mar. 26, 2012 at 13:03

Hi folks,

We'll be chatting to Gearbox later this week about Borderlands 2, and while we have our own questions for the team, we thought we'd see if you have anything you'd like to ask the developers too.

Let us know in the box below.

- Will there be 4-player splitscreen?
- Failing that, will the 2-player splitscreen be better than Borderlands 1? I played the game for about 10 hours before realising there was another half of the menu...
- Will there be a collector's edition/pre-order bonuses in the UK?

A World Editor! It's the only thing I felt was missing from the original game - the ability for players to be creating their own areas / missions.

With the way the game is divided up into areas, it'd be no trouble to essentially add an entrance in almost anywhere, with the area beyond being completely new. Failing that, just allowing the New-U stations to teleport you there would suffice. Each of their own DLC packs proved how easily it could be done.

Most people I know put loads of hours into the original ( managed over 250 hours), but having extra missions and areas could have multiplied that to no end.

^ THIS! (ON PC TOO!!)

Could you please ask them, if there will be a demo, as I had a LOT of problems persuading friends to buy the game, as they couldn't try it first. We play a lot of co-op games over xbox live, and it would be great if there was a demo this time round.

@stevenjameshyde: I can actually answer two of these questions (to the best of my ability).

Failing that, will the 2-player splitscreen be better than Borderlands 1? I played the game for about 10 hours before realising there was another half of the menu...


Gearbox are redesigning the GUI for both PC and splitscreen. Apparently it will be *much* easier and more intuitive to navigate, and laid out in a more convenient way. Plus, there'll be an onscreen map. Thank God.

- Will there be a collector's edition/pre-order bonuses in the UK?


There will be preorder bonuses. Participating UK retailers haven't been announced yet, but I can tell you that pre-order customers will be provided with a code to join the "Borderlands 2 Premiere Club," which entitles you to a gun pack, a mysterious 'golden key' and an XP boosting item. More details here.

We will definitely ask about 4 player splitscreen.

In case you're interested, I asked (and credited) three of these questions in our recent Borderlands 2 interview.
