Borderlands 2 Release Date Announced Along with New Trailer

The followup to Gearbox Software’s First-Person Shooter/RPG hybrid – Borderlands 2 – now has a release date.

2K Games, the title’s publisher, also revealed that people who pre-order Borderlands 2 from participating retailers will receive access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, and it will include bonuses and other in-game items.

Pre-ordering will get you the Gearbox Gun Pack, a Golden Key and the Vault Hunter’s Relic. What are these things you might ask?

From a 2K representative:

The Gearbox Gun Pack is a collection of unique guns to help players begin their journey on Pandora

The Golden Key is an in-game item used to unlock a rare item in the mysterious Golden Sanctuary Loot Chest found in Borderlands 2. The Vault Hunter’s Relic is an in-game item that boosts players’ gear-hunting fortune while playing solo or teaming up with friends.

Not only that, but 2K has also released a trailer, which should excite you and then some.

Borderlands 2 will come out this September 18 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
