So... it's basically Batman: Arkham Origins while Gearbox works on Arkham Knight?

From what I've seen, it's looking to be a solid addition. The Oxygen, thankfully, isn't for staying alive, but rather for using certain special abilities. I'm anticipating a number of secrets that need double jump and perhaps ground pounds to reveal.

The fact that the story is supposed to be longer than BL1 is also welcome news.

Better be available for Mac. I'll be living overseas at that point and won't be taking the PC. Borderlands is just too good though.

Even without Gearbox I have faith that the essence of what makes Borderlands great will be there. It's the writing, humour, characters, art direction, and overall design that makes the franchise great. Which is why Telltales spinoff should be aces.

Even if 2K Oz muck around with gameplay and make some mistakes, this will be worth getting if the staples are there.

I spoke too soon. It seems Oxygen IS used for staying alive. I'm expecting it will be plentiful though, but you will have to be careful, especially if you've killed all the enemies in the area as they're one of the sources of oxygen.

Cain_Kousei_69 - I seriously doubt it will be. Maybe $49.99 because it's releasing on last gen hardware, but for all intents and purposes it's a full BL game from the looks of things, with a decent length campaign and all.

Personally I'd prefer to pay full release price and get a proper BL game, rather than a lesser amount and get a lesser game in the process.

I will gladly pay $50 and another $40 for all of the extra DLC that will undoubtedly follow. These games are the reason I own a PS3 and the reason I will eventually get a PS4 (BL3 hopefully) and I am happy to shell out my money for something that I know, love, and will get my use out of.

It sure beats dropping $50, or even $10 for a game I will only play once (i.e. half of my video game collection).

I understand that it's going to be going to last gen systems and I'm cool with that. Gearbox is having 2k Australia make it. Instead of having them re-invent the wheel on a new system, I'm glad that most of the "shell" of the game is already "tried and true". So instead of trusting 2k AU to make a whole new game/platform/mechanics/etc, they are just building a super long DLC from existing resources.

You can already pre-order this game at GameStop. They don't have an official release date, just that it will be "Fall of 2014".

The generic date is 12/31/14 and the price will be $59.99. It seems a little steep for a last-gen game but I didn't care. IT'S FRICKIN' BORDERLANDS!!!!!!

I pre-ordered my copy Saturday and already told work that I would be taking that Wednesday off.

But you already know it's not going to be released on the 31st of December >_>

I'll probably try pre-ordering the next time I'm at my EB.

I know that you can duplicate guns in BL2. Could you do anything like that in BL1? Any guess if you will be able to dup in BL-1.5?

Yes you could. Since BL 1.5 is using a slightly revamped BL2 engine, I expect that duping will be just as easy, or nearly so.

Nope. Price isn't finalized yet I think, but it'll be anywhere between $40 and $60. Plus tax, of course.
