2K Games and Gearbox Software announced today the much anticipated Borderlands 2 is now available in North America and will be available internationally on September 21, 2012 for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC. The four-player cooperative shooter-looter already has critics raving, with review scores of 9 out of 10 from IGN, 9.75 out of 10 from Game Informer and a perfect 10 out of 10 from PlayStation: The Official Magazine.
“Borderlands 2 is a game made by gamers for gamers,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “The unique visual art style, all-new characters, loads of loot, 87 bazillion guns, and role-playing-shooting combine for a truly addictive experience, especially when played with three other friends. The initial response from the press has been fantastic and the game is poised to be one of the highest-rated titles in the history of 2K.”
Developed by Gearbox Software, Borderlands 2 features all-new characters and skill trees, diverse new environments, missions and enemies, as well as weapons and equipment with more personality than ever before. Players will also experience an all-new story that takes place five years after the events of the original game. Four friends can team up online to journey through the huge, open world of Pandora to take down the notorious Handsome Jack and his corrupt Hyperion Corporation.
"Borderlands 2 is a Gearbox team passion project through and through," said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. "Borderlands 2 is a must-play, one-of-a-kind single-player game and the best-in-class cooperative experience. Bring friends!"
Like the original game, Borderlands 2 will be supported with four add-on content campaigns. These four add-on content campaigns will be available individually or as a combined purchase of the Borderlands 2 Season Pass. This special offer, available starting on September 18, includes nearly $40.00 of add-on content and will be available for $29.99 (PlayStation Network) / 2400 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE online entertainment network) / $29.99 (Windows PC). Once purchased, the Borderlands 2 Season Pass enables gamers to download all of the announced add-on content campaigns for free as they become available on the PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE and Windows PC. All four add-on content campaigns are scheduled to be available by June 2013.
Borderlands 2 is rated M for Mature by the ESRB and is available now on Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PC. For the latest Borderlands 2 news and information, please visit www.borderlands2.com.
