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.

Borderlands was one of my favorite games during 09/10. I have over 100 days played on it, and I can't wait for this one. It's going to be amazing.
This is definitly a day one purchase for me. I loved the original, and this one looks alot better.
I always get a smile when I see CL4PTP or Claptrap...I dont know why.
I think I'm gonna have to go home and play me some Borderlands.
Zero is looking like he's the go-to guy for me! Now, I'll have to replay the first one because my PS3 died and my save was lost some 5 trophies away from a plat. =P
