Borderlands 2 Details

Presumably not engaging in "shoddy journalism," a post on PC Gamer has some details on Borderlands 2 from the Game Informer cover story on the upcoming role-playing shooter sequel. Word is the game will feature four new playable characters, with the cast from the original game appearing as NPCs. Here's more:

Gearbox have also decided to scrap all of the weapons from Borderlands 1. The randomly generated guns of the first game gave rise to thousands of mad scope/ammo/manufacturer combinations. New manufacturers will bring their own visual twists to each weapon, and players will now be able to add custom decals and enhancements to their favourite pieces.

Of the four new characters, only one has been revealed so far. He’s a stumpy “Gunzerker” called Salvador. He can dual wield any weapon and improve his abilities using the familiar three-branch skill tree of the first game. He’ll be able to choose from a wider selection of vehicles (ie: more than one), and use the new currency, Eridium, to buy new items or upgrade his armoury.

"He can dual wield any weapon". I can't wait to see how he reloads when he's dual wielding rocket launchers.

BL was definitely rough around the edges. Hopefully Gearbox will decide to take the time and resources to do BL2 right and live up to all that potential, instead of just pushing out a sequel as fast as they can to take advantage of the buzz that's still surrounding the first game.
I am not a man! I am a free number!
