2K Games and Gearbox Software have
announced that Borderlands 2 will arrive planetside on September 18
in North America, and September 21 Internationally. Witness the next
generation of off-world, multiplayer, cel-shaded shooters in today's
launch date trailer.
Split screen co-op? Ninja dudes with
laser swords? Claptrap doing the robot? Judging by the media we've
see so far (and our latest preview) Gearbox is hitting the wasteland
running with its Borderlands sequel.
Also teased in the trailer are
Borderlands 2's pre-order items, which can be obtained by slapping down
some cash at either GameStop and Amazon.com. Those that do will be
treated with a pass to the game's Premiere Club, which includes a
Golden Key, used to unlock a rare treat in the Sanctuary Loot Chest; a
Vault Hunter's Relic, an item said to boost one's gear-hunting
prowess; and the Gearbox Gunpack, a package containing one-of-a-kind
Gearbox Golden Guns.

handle the “wub wub”? Let us know what you think of Gearbox's Borderlands follow-up in the comments.
