Borderlands 2 due for release in 2012


For those of you who played the first Borderlands game and loved it as much as I did, the news that there'll be a sequel released in 2012 is exciting to say the least.

The first game was a post-apocalyptic first person shooter with RPG elements and an open world.

With it's cell-shaded graphics, twisted humour and excellent levelling system it was in my opinion easily one of the best games of 2010.

The game provided you with 4 classes (Soldier, Berserker, Siren and Hunter) who each had individual special abilities that could be upgraded as you levelled.

Guns were randomly generated with over 7 million variants with different stats and attributes.

And although the stand-alone game took a fairly long time to finish, there was a constant release of additional content through expansion packs over the next year.

Rest assured, this is no expansion though, as 2k games is intent on changing almost every aspect of the game to cater for issues that people may have had with original.

Even the character classes have changed, with the first being the "Gunzerker".

 Borderlands, Borderlands 2, FPS, First person shooter, sequel, RPG, Gunzerker, claptrap, Future Pixel, gaming, games, videogames, celshaded
This class is apparently more suited to shooting than the Berserker of the original game, with the ability to duel-wield. Meaning you could have a rocket launcher in the one hand and a Uzi in the other.

Apparently, much of the emphasis will be on the story this time, with side-missions playing a greater role in the overall plot.
