Dubstep is everywhere lately. Like a bad case of measles or the mumps, it's spread from game trailer to game trailer, even propagating to the silver screen and infecting teasers for major motion pictures.
Borderlands 2 seemed to be one of the worst hit, judging by the last trailer we saw. Happily, though, Gearbox's upcoming shooter seems to have recovered—quite remarkably so, in fact:
I'm not sure what I just watched... but I think I like it.
In any case, this tells us Gearbox hasn't abandoned the fun, tongue-in-cheek vibe of the original Borderlands. That's a good thing. First-person shooters all look alike these days, and they have the nasty habit of taking themselves much too seriously. Borderlands 2 looks like a breath of fresh air amid the endless flood of Call of Duty games and copycats.
Gearbox plans to release Borderlands 2 on September 18 for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Owners of the original Borderlands who pick up the sequel will be rewarded with "exclusive" character skins if they supply one of their old saved games.
