2K Games and Gearbox have announced that the much-anticipated sequel to 2009's sleeper hit Borderlands will be dropping this autumn. Borderlands 2 will be launching for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in the US on September 18th, with an international release set just a few days later on September 21st.
"Borderlands 2 is a passion project, through and through," Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software, has said. "The result is a sequel that has improved every successful aspect of Borderlands while innovating with an all-new experience."
New details have also emerged relating to the pre-order goodies gamers will be entitled to, depending on which store they shop at.
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.
