59w ago - Producer Matt Charles has shared details today on Borderlands 2 from PAX East for PlayStation 3 fans today!
To quote: This weekend at the Borderlands 2 booth, we granted PAX East visitors chance to play with two brand-new characters for Borderlands 2 - Salvador the Gunzerker and Maya the Siren - in a new environment called the Caustic Caverns.
The Gunzerker and Siren classes have made great strides compared to their counterparts from the original game. Players who choose to play as Salvador will be able to use his Gunzerking ability to run into a crowd with two guns blazing.
If you played the first game, you may recognize this as an evolution of Brick's Berserking skill. Meanwhile, Maya's new Siren skill Phaselock isolates an enemy inside a phase bubble for a short time.
Once you've Phaselocked a target, your primary choice is whether to focus your fire on the helpless foe before it breaks free or mop up any other threats nearby. Decisions, decisions!
Borderlands has a strong history of co-op gameplay and that's still a core promise of this game. At PAX, we watched as Siren players Phaselocked an enemy, leaving an opening for the Gunzerker buddy to run up, dual-wielding, and take out the target just in the nick of time.
65w ago - Gearbox Software Community Manager Chris Faylor has made available a Borderlands 2 PS3 gameplay trailer today along with revealing the title's official release date!
To quote: When I say that Borderlands changed my life, it's no exaggeration. It was the way that the game rewarded each and every action that got me. Every enemy I gunned down, every chest I opened brought a feeling of accomplishment and progression.
So when I had the opportunity to join the team at Gearbox Software, I moved halfway across the country without a moment's hesitation. Ever since, I've been seeing things that amaze me, things I know our fans will absolutely love. Things I haven't been able to talk about... until today.
Because today, we're blowing the lid off of Borderlands 2. We've got a new trailer, and if you haven't already skimmed down and hit Play, let me tell you what you're in for. You're going to meet the four new playable characters. You're going to catch a glimpse of the colorful new environments and areas you'll be fighting through.
You're going to see what you're up against, from new enemies like the multi-armed Bullymong and the robotic Loaders to the man with the plan to destroy you and everyone else on the planet, Handsome Jack. You're going to see a fraction...
92w ago - SCEE's James Gallagher has shared a Gamescom 2011 interview today with writer Anthony Burch of Borderlands 2 for the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Gamescom 2011 is a hazy memory now that I'm back at my London desk, watching raindrops fall down the window and imagining they're racing each other, but that doesn't mean our coverage is over.
I still have a few interviews to bring you, starting with Anthony Burch, writer on the recently announced Borderlands 2.
What did you think of the original Borderlands and will you be picking up the sequel?
180w ago - Yesterday the first Borderlands DLC dubbed Zombie Island was released for the PC, which was a couple weeks after it hit consoles.
Today, 2K Games and Gearbox announced the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 RPG shooter Borderlands will be getting a second piece of downloadable content in the next few weeks.
Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot is set to arrive on December 29th for the Xbox 360 and on January 7th for the PS3.
Underdome Riot ($10 or 800 MS Points) adds three new "Riot Mode" arenas. You (and up to three friends via co-op) will fight off waves of enemies in exchange for some sweet new loot and a couple extra skill points. The DLC also adds a much-needed feature to the game: a bank for storing your extra equipment.
No release date was provided for the PC version of Riot, but rest assured the content will appear on that platform as well.
