May contain spoilers. I'll try not to state anything not already shown in trailers.

Borderlands 2 plays very differently from the original. While it keeps the base elements of RPG progression and large intertwining storyline of the original there are alot of changes to the gameplay.

Elemental damage is generally pointless on an enemy type unless it is specifically designed for it (e.g. Shock damage weapons are only useful on shielded enemies, whereas on the original shock damage would still rack up more damage than a non elemental weapon), a new elemental type has been introduced: “Slag”, when a enemy is slagged it allows you to deal double the original amount of damage you would normally deal.

The AI in the game have been improved alot (in the original, if you hit a skag in a vehicle it would either splat or stay on your bumper doing damage, but in borderlands 2 if you hit an animal with a vehicle, you bowl it over). There are a bunch of new enemies including: threshers, goliaths and stalkers.

Weapon manufacturers now have different specialities (e.g. Jakobs from borderlands 1 used to specialise in powerful weaponry but fired very slowly, in borderlands 2 jakobs weapons fire as fast as you can pull the trigger, but aren't much more powerful anymore.) S&S munitions no longer exist. Eridian weapons have been replaced with E-Tec weapons that can be found by every manufacturer and tend to fire either spikes, railgun shots, or plasma balls.

The skill tree from the first game is very similar but instead of one tree with three sides it now shows three different sides. Instead of elemental artifacts that you would equip in the first game you now have “relics” which equip to your player for added bonuses.

Borderlands 2 now supports splitscreen over the net and LAN as well allowing you to play online with a friend.

Borderlands 2 keeps the humor of the original and does a very good job of making you hate the main enemy handsome jack, by the time you fight him. It could use a few patches as items tend to fall through the map from time to time which can become frustrating especially when it is a mission based retrieveal item.

Borderlands 2 doesn't feel like borderlands, but it is still a great game, and deftinitely one not to be missed.

If you love open world games this is for you. With billions of guns to choose from let the killing begin. Includes 1 player and co-op so you can play together with friends online and off. With loads of things to do and tons if enemies to face including brutal ones this is a game you don't wanna miss out on.

It is safe to say that Borderlands has cemented itself as a game for the ages! A game you can pick up and easily never put it down. Can't wait to see where this game goes in the future and whether a Trilogy is the plan

Borderlands 2 furthers the distinct blending of First Person Shooter and Role Playing genres to create the true evolution of the Role Playing Shooter. Team up with up to three other players for four-player online goodness or go old-school with two-player split-screen couch sharing mayhem as you spend hours leveling up your character and equipping them with one of the millions of badass weapons.

Borderlands 2 features a new visually stunning array of procedurally generated guns, shields, grenades, artifacts, enemies and more. Choose one of the four new character classes to be taken through a carefully crafted and connected story to all new and surprising environments across the living planet of Pandora. Make new friends, arm them to the teeth and fight alongside them on your relentless quest for revenge and redemption.

Gunzerker Leads a Cast of All-New Characters and All-New Classes: Step into the role of the Gunzerker, whose highly deadly skills allow him to dual-wield any two weapons found in the game. Not only that, you will build on that skill to do more things with two guns than you ever imagined possible. Dual machine guns? Cool. Dual rocket launchers? Of course! Dual Sniper Rifles? Sure, if that's your thing! Want to try other styles? More tactical perhaps? There are multiple classes to choose from!


  • Dynamic Co-op online, split-screen and LAN: Share your adventures with friends both online and via LAN. Borderlands 2 features a seamless system enabling you to drop in and drop out of a campaign without ever having to restart the game. On top of that you can even take your new gear from any game to any other!
  • World Connected Story: You will find yourself left for dead in the frozen tundra of Pandora as you begin your quest of revenge and redemption. Expose the evil surrounding the Hyperion Corporation and take on the perpetrator of a universe-wide grand deception – the nefarious Hyperion CEO, Handsome Jack. (Oh, also: he's stolen credit for the opening of the Vault.)
  • New Gun System: An entirely new take on the groundbreaking procedural system means millions upon millions of possible weapons. The variety and style of guns in Borderlands 2 is staggering, and you'll see tons of new and innovative ways to engage foes on Pandora. Fire, electricity, corrosive acid, and much more will all be at your disposal as you fight your way through the Hyperion Corporation's for­ces!
  • 87 Bazillion…E­verything: In addition to the new gun system, you will lust after procedurally generated shields, grenades, Alien Artifacts, class mods and much, much more. And you thought the original Borderlands had a ton of loot!
  • Brand new environments on Pandora: Hunt through entirely brand new areas of Pandora that are more alive than ever! From the arctic tundra, through the dangerous grasslands, past the mysterious corrosive caverns to beyond, you'll be surprised by the unpredictable world of Pandora at every turn!
  • Brand new enemies: A whole slew of new enemies are out there to kill you in Borderlands 2. Hulking, gorilla-like Bullymongs, vicious predatory Stalkers and the Hyperion mechanical army, run by Handsome Jack, are just some of the new enemies you will be facing off against on Pandora. New strategies will need to be created for every fight, as enemies now interact and aid each other to ensure you don't get far in the world of Pandora.
