Borderlands 2 Gets September 2012 Release Date and a New Trailer

Gearbox Software announced that Borderlands 2 should release on September 18, 2012 in the US and September 21, 2012 internationally for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Since Borderlands 2 is already confirmed to be coming to OnLive, let's hope the game will make it to OnLive day-and-date. If the release of Duke Nukem Forever for OnLive is any indication, this could well be the case.

Currently in development by Gearbox Software, Borderlands 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed four-player cooperative shooter-looter Borderlands, that combined intense first-person mayhem with role-playing gameplay.

Living up to the mantra "bigger, better and more badass," Borderlands 2 features all-new characters; skills; imaginative, diverse new environments with unique missions and enemies; and more exciting and fun weapons, equipment and loot than ever before. All of these features come together in a story that takes players to the world of Pandora to take down the notorious Handsome Jack and his corrupt Hyperion Corporation as a solo campaign or with up to four cooperative players.

"The addictive gameplay and shooting and looting mayhem of the first Borderlands is back and better than ever in Borderlands 2, taking the franchise to an entirely new level," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "With more guns, more enemies, more missions, an engaging story and all-new characters, Borderlands 2 promises to bring a new era to gaming this fall."

Borderlands 2 will allow friends to play together locally via split-screen, as well as online with drop-in-drop-out capabilities. With seamless cooperative gameplay and action, Borderlands 2 is extremely accessible for gamers and their friends to play alone or together in a variety of configurations.

"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."
