Note: There might be more than 870 Gajillion guns over and above the 87 Bazillion guns of the original. I am still debating as to which number is higher, but for now these facts must do.
Borderlands was one of the most fun (as in it made me laugh like a maniac every time I killed something with an Elephant Rifle) first person Diablo-type game with guns I have ever played. The cel-shaded world that could be explored as freely as you would want, mindlessly shooting skags, mindlessly shooting hoodlums, mindlessly shooting robots, and mindlessly shooting aliens and mindless- you get the idea. In addition playing co-op with our very own Sathya and trying to understand how the vehicles operated in the game made it tons more fun!
Now 2K Games is coming up with Borderlands 2, and the trailer promises that you will “joy puke your face off” when you play it. I am inclined to believe it. The bunches of features added in the new game are:-
- New characters! The fat and beefy Salvador, the lithe and sensuous Maya, the Engineer-like Axton, and the Assassin-class Zero.
- Flying machines! I think.
- FOUR player co-op. Seriously, 4 player co-op gameplay. I cannot wait. I am already giddy.
- Player customization.
- More Claptraps
- Generally more violence and guns
- Lots and lots of guns
- Some more guns
Okay okay I’ll breathe! Sheesh. Man cannot have his share of being excited at things these days…
Borderlands 2 is set for a September 18 2012 release date for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Preorder goodies are also shown in the video!
