2K have announced that the sequel to the surprising and highly acclaimed Borderlands has been given a September 18th release in the US and a September 21st release for the rest of us.

That’s not all, 2K have also announced that gamers who pre-order the game through participating retailers will gain access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere  Club which will give gamers access to special weapons and unique items for their trek across Pandora.

2K wrote in their press release that, “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.”

They also went on to mention that the game will improve on the original in pretty much every way.

Borderlands 2 is a passion project, through and through. The result is a sequel that has improved every successful aspect of Borderlands while innovating with an all-new experience.”

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.

Sounds exciting and hopefully we’ll get some more information about the game in due course and hopefully at E3 2012. Borderlands was personally one of my favourite games and a great change the usual dreary FPS scene.
