Borderlands 2 Editions Announced

Thu, 05/17/2012 - 11:01 — TANK

Gearbox today announced more ways for you to give them money when Borderlands 2 launches on September 18, 2012. Whether you just want to play the game, you're a fan or even a super fan, it looks like Gearbox has you covered.




First there is the regular $60 edition if you just want to own the game.  If you pre-order however you can enhance it with access to the Borderlands 2 Premier Club.  Members of this elite club will be able to download the Gearbox Gun Pack, a golden key,  a Vault Hunters relic and a fifth character class.





If you have an extra $39 in your pocket to burn, for $99 you can pick up the Vault Hunter’s Collectors Edition.  For those extra hard earned dollars, you’ll be treated to an authentic bobble head replica of Marcus Kincaid, an Art & Design hardcover book titled Inside the Vault, a map of Pandora, stickers to trade with your friends, a digital comic download code and last but not least, some unspecified in-game content to download.  Exclusive Borderlands 2 Premier Club benefits also apply.





I bet you’re wondering though what you can get if you had an extra $90 to spend and could hand a fat $140 money roll over to your local reseller.  How about the Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition that comes with your very own scaled replica of the Pandora loot chests!  Inside the chest, besides all the loot previously mentioned you’ll find a Creatures of Pandora ID chart poster, lithograph post cards, field notes from Sir Hammerlock, a cloth map of Pandora, a numbered certificate of authenticity and a steelbook game box.  Entry into the Borderlands 2 Premier Club for pre-ordering further enhances the look of this sku.




The Borderlands 2 Premiere Club which is exclusive to those who pre-order will have an edge in Pandora with some great in-game content.  The Gearbox Gun Pack is a collection of unique guns to get you started in the game.  The Golden Key unlocks the Golden Sanctuary Loot Chest which contains an unspecified rare item.  The Vault Hunter’s Relic is a loot drop modifier that will boost your gear-hunting fortunes.  Lastly the new character class is a Necromancer character.  It will be available via DLC post-game launch and will be free for those who pre-ordered or you can buy it if you couldn’t afford to put down $5 at your local game store.



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.

Since this is the last 'buy' of the year for me because 2K bounced Bioshock to next year, i'm seriously considering the more expensive SKUs on this one.  I  loved Borderlands.  It was my personal pick for GoTY that year.

Agreed Tank!  I will probably go with the Super geek, er, I mean, Super Fan edition.  I love this game and look forward to spending countless hours in Pandora again.

Really, really want that bobblehead.  Just not sure I can part with almost 3 boxes of beer's worth of cash to have it.

Good write up TANK, they are really going all out on this one, and rightfully so. Loved the first one. According to GameInformer, that new class is called a "Mechromancer", a human/robot hybrid. Besides that, they only said you will somehow control a large robot called a "Death-trap". Excited would be an understatment.

Yup, this is going to be a collectors edition purchase.

I've got Darksiders 2, ACIII, BL2, Halo 4 coming up and I'll be getting larger editions of the last two.

Well you can pre-order at GS for probably 20 bucks and then you've got now till Sept to pay it down a bit at a time.  It's kinda like pre-order lay-a-way :)

I did that with the Gears 3 Epic Edition.  I put down like 25 bucks a month and by the time it came out, i had paid it off.
