Borderlands 2

1743 posts in this topic






A new era of shoot and loot is about to begin. Play as one of four new vault hunters facing off against a massive new world of creatures, psychos

and the evil mastermind, Handsome Jack. Make new friends, arm them with a bazillion weapons and fight alongside them in 4 player co-op or split-

screen on a relentless quest for revenge and redemption across the undiscovered and unpredictable living planet.





  • Four player (split-screen and online) co-op
  • Bazillion weapons
  • Four distinct character classes
  • Hostile world begging to be explored
  • Thousands of items of loot
  • Diverse environments that offer player different challenges
  • New cunning, dangerous and extremely hostile enemies
  • Co-operative horde mode dubbed Robot Slaughter Arena
  • Claptrap





Borderlands 2 follows the story of four new Vault Hunters as they fight to free Pandora from the clutches of Handsome Jack, the brilliant, charismatic

and utterly despicable CEO of the Hyperion Corporation. Players will fight across the whole of Pandora to stop Jack from awakening an ancient alien

evil known only as "the Warrior." Their quest will bring them into contact with some familiar faces from the old game – most notably, the original four

Vault Hunters: Roland, Lilith, Brick and Mordecai. They, along with some brand new characters, will help players defeat Jack, destroy the Warrior, and

save Pandora.






Salvador is about as subtle, classy, and sane as one would imagine a native of Pandora to be.

Which is to say: not at all. He loves blowing people up, getting paid, and laughing incessantly

at the violence that surrounds him.


Action Skill: Gunzerking

Salvador can dual wield ANY gun in ANY combination. Want a sniper rifle and a rocket launcher?

Go for it! Two guns are better than one!



Not much information is known about this mysterious being.


Action Skill: Deception

Zer0 can vanish into stealth, do massive critical hit damage and distract his enemies with a decoy.

While in Deception, Zer0 can also see critical weak points on enemies or assassinate enemies

with fast attacking melee strikes.



Hailing from the planet of Athenas where she was once worshipped as a goddess, Maya has

come to Pandora to learn more about her Siren heritage. And to melt her enemies with the

power of her mind. But mainly the first thing.


Action Skill: Phaselock

Maya can lift and lock enemies in place where they sit helplessly out of battle and prone to

damage. Phaselock can take any forms including healing party members, creating massive

damage to enemies or for crowd controlling numerous enemies.



Axton was kicked out of the military for being too unpredictable - too much of a fun-loving

glory hog. Rather than face certain death at a firing squad, he thought he'd retire to the one

planet in the galaxy where his talents would be appreciated: Pandora.


Action Skill: Sabre Turret

Axton can deploy a turret which can be upgraded with many gun and missile attachments or

augmentations. Some of these upgrades can grant the turret the ability to teleport far

distances or create nuclear explosions!

IVG: Was Borderlands always intended as a role-playing shooter or did you start out making a shooter or RPG and then decided to expand into the



Randy Pitchford: From the very beginning, the idea was to blend the genres. We realised that what was fun about a shooter – the moment-to-moment

skill of moving, aiming and dodging – was not mutually exclusive with the long range involvement of collecting loot, levelling up, and choosing, building and

growing out a character. The fun that we derive from these long-term engagements like choice or growth in RPGs is not mutually exclusive with the fun of

an FPS. So that idea was very simple and it was the start of all of this. The style and the story follow the game design.

f**ckin' lovely. Never cared much for the prev game, but damn! those screenies are amazing. I'm getting this one for sure, unless there's something really off-putting they haven't revealed yet.

Pandora does look like Pandora from that movie.




OMG looks awesome. Day and night cycle :wOOtjumpy: also, sniper :wOOtjumpy:


The first game also had some kind of day/night cycle, except that it wasn't an actual "day" or "night", it was something like that planet from Pitch Black.


Just show me BloodWing + Mordecai & you can have my money.


I think they've already said that none of the characters from the previous game will be playable. They'll be NPCs.
