Borderlands 2 Release Date Announced!

Borderlands 2 Release Date Announced!

Big news today for all you travelers out there, the follow-up to the smash hit Borderlands from Gearbox software and 2K Games has been in the making for a while now and they’ve officially announced that it will be launching September 18th in the US and September 21st Internationally!

That’s right it’s time to get back down to Pandora and loot and shoot your way to glory with up to 3 of your friends in what is still one of my favorite games.

Along with announcing the release date Gearbox has announced that pre-ordered versions of the game will include exclusive access to Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, and in-game items. The Premiere Club includes a Gearbox Gun Pack, a Golden Key and the Vault Hunters Relic. The Gearbox Gun Pack is a collection of unique guns to help players on the beginning of their journey in Pandora. The Golden Key as an in-game item used to unlock a rare item in the mysterious Golden Sanctuary Loot Chest found in Borderlands 2. Lastly the Vault Hunter’s Relic is an in-game item that boosts players’ gear-hunting fortune while playing solo or with friends.

Interesting stuff and similar to what was available for pre-order with the original Borderlands. I am a bit surprised that it doesn’t include access to the first DLC pack which has been included with a lot of pre-orders recently. DLC has become a hugely successful area for game developers and Gearbox certainly reaped the benefits of it with the original Borderlands so we are certainly expecting multiple DLC installments for the follow-up. I guess I’ve just bought into the idea that game makers know that DLC is coming to support their games so why not pre-sell access to them similar to what the Gears of War or Call of Duty series has done.

Anyway, I’ve pre-ordered and I can’t wait to sit down and get back into the fray on Pandora!

Full Release:

New York, NY, February 22, 2012 – 2K Games and Gearbox Software announced today that Borderlands™ 2, the sequel to the multi-million unit selling breakout hit, Borderlands™, will be available on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows-based PC in North America on September 18, 2012 and internationally on September 21, 2012. Currently in development by Gearbox Software, Borderlands 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed four-player cooperative shooter-looter that combined intense first-person mayhem with role-playing gameplay. In addition, fans who pre-order the title from participating retailers will receive access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, including rewarding in-game items and bonuses.

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.”

Gamers who pre-order Borderlands 2 from participating retailers will gain access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, allowing them to download the Gearbox Gun Pack, a Golden Key and the Vault Hunter’s Relic. The Gearbox Gun Pack is a collection of unique guns to help players begin their journey on Pandora. The Golden Key is an in-game item used to unlock a rare 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.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Content Drop #3 Landing February 21

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Content Drop #3 Landing February 21

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Content Drop 3 Overwatch

Ah yes hot on the heals of Content Drops #1 & #2 which saw two new maps for Modern Warfare 3, Activision has announced that the 3rd Content Drop is going to arrive on February 21st. Like the first two Content Drops #3 is a map, Overwatch.

Overwatch is set on top of a New York City skyscraper. The battle take place along two levels in a near symmetrical layout, with the central bridge and side routes open to attack from multiple angles. A nice touch is there are no safety barriers surrounding the perimeter so you can fall 70 stories to the ground below!

Overwatch will land first for Xbox 360 Elite Premium members and then trickle out to other systems and subscriber levels.

Activision also let known that Drops 4-6 will land in March (according to their calendar) and include a new map “Black Box” and two new Special Ops Missions “Black Ice” and “Negotiator”

I’ve been impressed with the first two Content Drops (Piazza and Liberation) so I’m looking forward to see more roll-out. Having multiple development teams on the content calendar is starting to pan out for Activision and hopefully they’ll churn out not just quantity but quality as well.

Activision Confirms "At Least 20 Content Drops" for Modern Warfare 3

We’ve reported on it before, but Activision has sent out a release today confirming that they will be providing a 9 month “season” of post-release content for Modern Warfare 3, starting January 24th. Activision is calling this unprecedented, and in a sense it is, but the question is what are the “content drops” going to be. We’ve heard that they will be “like nothing seen before” consisting of maps, Special Ops Missions, new game modes and more.
