[edit] Background

Sequel to the 2009 Game of the Year, Borderlands 2 will return with the same hectic single player and 4-player co-op and treasure hunting madness of its predecessor.

Borderlands 2 follows the story of four new Vault Hunters as they fight to free Pandora from the clutches of Handsome Jack, the brilliant, charismatic, and utterly despicable CEO of the Hyperion Corporation.

Players will fight across the whole of Pandora to stop Jack from awakening an ancient alien evil known only as "the Warrior." Their quest will bring them into contact with some familiar faces from the old game – most notably, the original four Vault Hunters: Roland, Lilith, Brick and Mordecai. They, along with some brand new characters, will help players defeat Jack, destroy the Warrior, and save Pandora.

[edit] Game Play

One to four player cooperative first-person shooter, dubbed by its creators to be a "role-playing shooter." Arcade-style gameplay is fast, engaging, and addictive. Borderlands 2 promises to improve upon its predecessor by bettering enemy AI and making a more enjoyable storyline.

A new era of shoot and loot is about to begin. Play as one of four new vault hunters facing off against a massive new world of creatures, psychos and the evil mastermind, Handsome Jack. Make new friends, arm them with a bazillion weapons and fight alongside them in 4 player co-op or split-screen on a relentless quest for revenge and redemption across the undiscovered and unpredictable living planet.
