This September, Borderlands 2 is set to take over your console. The original title was an instant classic that made gamers who never cared about “loot” become crazy over the thought of collecting it.
With only four months until Borderlands 2 goes live, 2K Games & Gearbox have announced special editions for the title. Not enough for you? The official cover art was already revealed in the announcement.
Gamers will be treated to two different special editions for Border lands 2: Deluxe Vault Hunter’s Collector’s Edition & the Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition. There’s quite a bit of extra content that comes with each edition, and we’ve included the details below.
The Deluxe Vault Hunter’s Collector’s Edition (MSRP $99.99) includes a copy of Borderlands 2; authentic Marcus Kincaid bobblehead; Inside the Vault: The Art & Design of Borderlands 2hardbound book; collectable sticker set; map of Pandora; digital comic download code; and bonus downloadable in-game digital content. The Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition (MSRP $149.99) includes all of those items, plus a collectable scaled replica of the red loot chests found throughout Pandora in Borderlands 2; steel book case; Creatures of Pandora wide-format ID chart; lithograph postcard set; field notes from Sir Hammerlock; cloth map of Pandora; and a numbered certificate of authenticity.
Gamers who pre-order the Deluxe Vault Hunter’s Collector’s Edition, Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition or the standard edition of Borderlands 2 from participating retailers will also gain access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, allowing them to download the Gearbox Gun Pack, a Golden Key, the Vault Hunter’s Relic and an all-new fifth character class – the Mechromancer. The Gearbox Gun Pack is a collection of unique guns to help players begin their journey on Pandora. The Golden Key is used to unlock a rare in-game item in the mysterious Golden Sanctuary Loot Chest found in Borderlands 2. The Vault Hunter’s Relic is an in-game item that boosts players’ gear-hunting fortune while playing solo or teaming up with friends. The Mechromancer character class will be available following launch when development of the character is complete and is free to those who pre-order Borderlands 2, and will be available for purchase for those who do not.
Borderlands 2 is set to launch in North America on September 18th & on September 21st in all other regions. The four-player cooperative title is bringing a lot to the table this year, and is looking to be a huge hit at E3 this year as well.
