So we didn’t get you anything for Christmas, we’re sorry. Please accept these treats as gifts…
This is the announcement trailer for Borderlands 2, featuring the all-new Salvador, the Gunzerker!
Alongside the new Gunzerker class, we can also expect to see the return of a new and improved Siren class and there’s also rumors of a possible “Bandit” class.
We’ve also caught wind of news on the antagonist, Handsome Jack! It’s five years after the events from the first Borderlands and Jack’s taken over the Hyperion corp and now rules Pandora. He’s also taken credit for finding the Vault and destroying the Destroyer. He’s a real pain in the neck and it’s your job to take him out and restore peace to Pandora.
Developers, Gearbox have also informed us they’ll be adding an army of new enemies, changing the in-game gear manufactures and said they’ll be totally redesigning the hated driving feature.
Not only do we have an exciting trailer, rumors of new classes and some news on the story and development, but we also have a possible release date!
Sources tell us Borderlands 2 may be set for release 30th June of this year. Members of the gaming community have received various emails from distributors (mainly Amazon) about ordering Borderlands 2 ready for it’s release in June. While nothing is official, this wouldn’t be the first time an outlet has announced the release date before the developers.
We’re as excited about this as you guys are so we’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear anything. Who says we don’t treat you guys?
