How in the world does Gearbox keep putting out these great looking Borderlands 2 trailers week after week? Today's trailer features the esteemed Sir Hammerlock, a gentleman of class and stature, a man with multiple robotic limbs. He knows his stuff though, this Sir Hammerlock, and how nice of him to go out of his way to reintroduce the "new" Pandora and all of its exciting new content. Borderlands 2 is going to be badass -- badass, badass, badass. Badass.
Sir Hammerlock is apparently very well educated in the world of Pandora. During his trailer he walks us through an assortment of gameplay features and systems. We're reintroduced to the greater world of Pandora and its Borderlands, each of the respective classes and their abilities, the bazillion weapons and grenades, the hundreds of new enemies, and Borderlands 2's various progression systems, like Badass Rank. If there's only one trailer you watch to inform yourself on the game, this is it.
Borderlands 2 is set for release on September 18 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The game already has a year of post-release content planned out, all available with the purchase of a season pass. There's also a fifth playable character class in the works, free for pre-orderers and later available as standard DLC. How much video game is too much?
