Borderlands 2 isn't going to be stifled by censorship no matter where it's released, Gearbox has proudly announced. If you live in Germany, Australia, or any other region famous for their video game censorship, rest assured your Borderlands 2 experience will be just as bloody and violent as anyone else's.
Here's the confirmation in Gearbox's own humorous words:
Do you live in Germany? Australia? Bandits will be just as likely to explode into bloody chunks of awesomeness as they will be in the Canada or England (which is to say: very likely.)
Unlike the first Borderlands, which did have some of its gore cut based on region, the sequel is going to keep all the bloody goodness as-is but include a new Gore Toggle option. As its name implies, the option will allow players to tone down the gore to a comfortable level. Hey, everyone's happy!
Borderlands 2 will be out on September 18 in North America and September 21 internationally.
