The lights are on
Gearbox's follow-up to its 2009 hit Borderlands looks to build on everything that made the original game great. At its core, it retains its four-person co-op shooter roots, while shifting the action to a new location and introducing additional characters. A new trailer shows off just some of the sequel's new facets, while revealing a September release date.
“Borderlands 2 is a passion project, through and through,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “The result is a sequel that has improved every successful aspect of Borderlands while innovating with an all-new experience.”
Look for the game September 18 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Early birds can also score a little extra loot via the Borderlands Premiere Club. This preorder bonus provides players with in-game swag including a golden key, vault hunter's relic, and the Gearbox gunpack.

the first one was really good. this one looks and sounds alot better cant wait to play this one too. I hope this one had has a lot of DLC like the first one.
had alot of fun the 1rst time around... one of few games I got my GF to play all the way through with me. Looks like alot of improvements. Yet another game to look forward to more and more.
The first one was fantastic! Cannot wait for this new one, I will definitely be pre-ordering it. I wonder if the Borderlands Premiere Club will end up turning into something similar to Call of Duty: Elite service, and those who pre-ordered the game will have access to DLC content first. Something to definitely look forward to!
i cant wait
