Borderlands 2 features all-new characters; skills; imaginative, diverse new environments with missions and enemies; and 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.
Borderlands 2 will allow friends to play together locally via split-screen, as well as online with drop-in-drop-out capabilities.

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.
It will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows-based PC on September 21, 2012.
