First look at Borderlands 2
2K Games and Gearbox Software have officially announced that the sequel to Borderlands is on the way for release in 2012. It’s called Borderlands 2 rather than the rumoured Borderworlds.
According to the press release, the game 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.”
The September issue of Game Informer has an exclusive first look at the game, with some nice cover art that possibly reveals one of the new dual wielding characters.
As well as some further details:
“Don’t expect just a couple bazillion more guns this time around. Gearbox is introducing new and more diverse environments, smarter and more powerful enemies, and an improved mission system capable of delivering a better story.”
The game will be shown at this year’s Gamescom 2011 from August 17 – August 21.
