August 3, 2011


Gearbox Software’s surprise 2010 hit, Borderlands, received critical praise from both critics and consumers when it hit retail.  After four pieces of downloadable content, fans were clamoring for a sequel.  Well, Gearbox Software just confirmed that Borderlands 2 is in development and they will show off the game at Gamescom later this month (Aug 17th-21st).  The sequel will feature new characters, skills, environments, enemies, weapons and equipment within the undiscovered areas of Pandora.

Time to loot Pandora again!

Being huge fans of the first installment, we sure can’t wait to see what Gearbox has up their sleeve with their sequel.  Borderlands 2 will be shooting it’s way to the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC later in 2012.

    I had no doubt they were making borderlands 2 but i’m glad they finally admitted it lol. Guess i’ll go back and finish borderlands.

      A great game that certainly deserves a sequel. Many people had a feeling it was in the works but it is great that it is officially confirmed. Good idea to go back and completely finish up Borderlands.

    I can’t help but wonder what the new characters will be like, what their skills will be, etc. I was a hunter/soldier fan in Borderlands 1, so it kind of makes me wonder how that’s going to translate to the sequel. Kind of like Diablo 3 without the ginormous wait. 🙂

      It will be interesting to see what they’re doing with the sequel. I’m kind of bummed out that they changed the character classes though. I focused on using the “siren” since her abilities appealed to me the most…but she also grew on me to the point where I was hoping she would be in the sequel. Only time will tell what officially will be in the next installment.
