Remember what I said yesterday about Borderlands 2? (No..well try and keep up.) 2K and Gearbox dropped the official announcement today and let us know that mid 2012 is the target date. However, for those of you that like hate waiting for things everyone will get a first look during Gamescom 2011 (August 17-21) and at PAX Prime (August 26-28).
Borderlands 2 has been billed as the “epic sequel” to the previous Borderlands, which was the first four-player Role-Playing Shooter loot fest. (They actually said loot fest in the press release..so why change what’s already awesome.) Borderlands 2 will feature some all-new characters, skills, environments, enemies, weapons and equipment which Gearbox and friends claims will collide in an epic storyline. (Hope they deliver, that’s a pretty hefty statement..) Needlessly put, Pandora will never quite be the same again.
More details will follow as this is big news for the Borderlands community, stay tuned, and ZKG will keep you ahead of the pack.
