Fans of the original Borderlands will be happy to know the sequel will still feature four-player co-op, and that the game’s main protagonist Salvador, the Gunzerker, is capable of wielding any weapon in the game. More details below the break.
– Another change is inclusion of dynamic story missions, in which the story will shape to fit your success or failure.
– A new element, Eridium, will also be present. It’s not a weapon, but can be combined with guns and vehicles to improve their stats. And it’s also used as a form of currency.
– Enemies also promise to be more varied and more intelligent.
– If you got attached to a particular weapon in the first game, it’s time to say a tearful goodbye. Gearbox is scrapping all the weapons from the first game in favour of a new-look arsenal.
Borderlands 2 will be present at GamesCom 2011 in Cologne, taking place from August 17th-21st. We’ll keep you posted.
