quote Game Save RewardFurthermore, those who did play the first game (and still have their gamesave, of course) will be given a custom character skin and a unique head as a thank-you, Gearbox said at the same panel.
quote Special EditionsThe Golden Key pre-order bonus unlocks a chest containing leveled, purple rarity loot, it appears to be one time use only (Once per account, so no making multiple characters). Do it sooner to get a more powerful weapon at the start, or wait patiently until you reach the level cap to get a very powerful weapon.Some of the game's special edition premiums—which the studio had put up to a suggestion box last year—also were revealed. There will be two tiers of special editions. The "Deluxe Vault Hunters Edition" at $99, gets a Marcus Kincaid bobble head. He's the weapons supplier with the lothario accent who narrates the first game. The second, an "Ultimate Loot Chest Edition" (pictured above) delivers you a stylized Borderlands loot chest with all the goodies packed inside. It doesn't open up with hydraulics—it's more like a jewelry box, but it matches a community suggestion as best it could. More goodies and premiums in both editions will be announced later.
quote ArticleSource: GamesradarBack in May when the Borderlands 2 preorder packs were first revealed, they included a "Golden Key" that nobody quite understood. Today, Gearbox Software has revealed the in-game treasure chest that the key will open.
Seen above, the chest itself is a bit of a riddle that each player must solve for his or herself. See, the chest holds random, very powerful loot. However, the loot that pops out will be powerful only for the level at which you open it.
Therefore, if you open it the day the game launches, you'll have a great weapon to start the game, but you've also just squandered your chance to see what might come out later on down the road.
So do you hold off until you reach the late stages of the game? Or open it quickly and wonder til it drives you mad what might have come out ten levels later.
