We're just 18 days away from the release of Borderlands 2. The game has already made headlines, not least of all because Nvidia decided to bundle it with the new GeForce GTX 660 Ti. Gearbox has now posted a fresh trailer that conveniently recaps everything you need to know about the incoming post-apocalyptic co-op shooter. Check it out below:
Narrated in a sing-songy British accent by Sir Hammerlock, a character from the game, the nearly seven-minute-long video walks you through Borderlands 2's locales, character classes, weapons, character specializations, and the all-important plot—which apparently involves a fellow named Handsome Jack, who's taken over the game's titular borderlands.
I enjoyed the original Borderlands quite a bit, despite playing more single-player than co-op. I think this trailer confirms my suspicions about Borderlands 2: it's going to be more of the same, only bigger and badder. I suppose I can get down with that.
Borderlands 2 is due out on September 18 for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Gearbox says folks who pre-order at "select retailers" will receive membership to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, entitling them to "exclusive digital content for your characters" plus a "new character class" dubbed the Mechromancer.
