2K Games and Gearbox Software announced today that Borderland 2 will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 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.
"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.
