After dropping enough hints to fill up the original Borderlands' entire gun roster, Gearbox has finally stopped being coy. Borderlands is officially getting a sequel. Will there be more guns? Click past the break for the shocking (read: not shocking) answer!
“Combining invention and evolution, Borderlands 2 features all new characters, skills, environments, enemies, weapons and equipment, which come together in an ambitiously crafted story,” said Gearbox's announcement . “Players will reveal secrets, and escalate mysteries of the Borderlands universe as they adventure across the unexplored new areas of Pandora.”
So basically, it's a videogame sequel. But that's definitely not a bad thing in this case. Borderlands was a noggin-blasting, OCD-sating good time in its own right, but the game's wasteland sort of lived up to its name – and not in a good way. Point is, there was plenty of untapped potential, and Borderlands 2 is shooting to realize it.
The game's getting a full reveal at Gamescom next week, and it's set for launch sometime in 2012. To tide you over, though, here's this video of Claptrap dancing . Just remember, folks, he's dancing. He's dancing .
