Gearbox Software—developer of the original Borderlands and, most recently, savior of the notorious Duke Nukem Forever—is officially hard at work on a full sequel to their hit multiplayer RPG/shooter hybrid, appropriately titled Borderlands 2.
Borderlands 2 is, according to 2K Games' press release, coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC "during Take-Two's fiscal year 2013 beginning on April 1, 2012." The sequel will feature all-new characters, skills, environments, enemies, weapons and equipment, further separating it from being anything close to a simple DLC addition. "Players will reveal secrets, and escalate mysteries of the Borderlands universe as they adventure across the unexplored new areas of Pandora."
Fans of the series will get a chance at an early peek at Borderlands 2 at Gamescom 2011 (August 17-August 21) and PAX Prime (August 26-August 28). The latest issue of Game Informer magazine also features the title as its cover story, so many of the game details are revealed within its pages.
Anyone here a Borderlands player?
