Two Borderlands 2 CEs Announced

Gearbox Software announces two different tiers of collector's edition for Borderlands 2, their role-playing shooter sequel that's expected this September. The Borderlands 2 Pre-Order Page offers links to the retailers offering the CEs and a bunch of photos of all the goodies included in these CEs, which include membership in a Premiere Club, similar to how they did with Duke Nukem Forever. Here's the deal:

The Deluxe Vault Hunterís Collector's Edition (MSRP $99.99) includes a copy of Borderlands 2; authentic Marcus Kincaid bobblehead; Inside the Vault: The Art & Design of Borderlands 2 hardbound book; collectable sticker set; map of Pandora; digital comic download code; and bonus downloadable in-game digital content. The Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition (MSRP $149.99) includes all of those items, plus a collectable scaled replica of the red loot chests found throughout Pandora in Borderlands 2; steel book case; Creatures of Pandora wide-format ID chart; lithograph postcard set; field notes from Sir Hammerlock; cloth map of Pandora; and a numbered certificate of authenticity. Both of the special editions will be available for the Xbox 360ģ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStationģ3 computer entertainment system and Windows-based PC.

Gamers who pre-order the Deluxe Vault Hunterís Collector's Edition, Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition or the standard edition of Borderlands 2 from participating retailers will also gain access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, allowing them to download the Gearbox Gun Pack, a Golden Key, the Vault Hunterís Relic and an all-new fifth character class - the Mechromancer. The Gearbox Gun Pack is a collection of unique guns to help players begin their journey on Pandora. The Golden Key is used to unlock a rare in-game item in the mysterious Golden Sanctuary Loot Chest found in Borderlands 2. The Vault Hunterís Relic is an in-game item that boosts playersí gear-hunting fortune while playing solo or teaming up with friends. The Mechromancer character class will be available following launch when development of the character is complete and is free to those who pre-order Borderlands 2, and will be available for purchase for those who do not.

On the one hand I'm tempted to pre-order to get the fifth character class, but otoh, the first game was a travesty on the PC out of the box, and I have zero faith in Randy Pitchford that the second one will be ANY better, despite all his (undoubtedly empty) promises.

You can still purchase the class later. Let them fix it and then get it on sale later...

Hell, you don't even have SR3 yet.

Disgusting. Fuck gearbox.

What part do you find disgusting in particular? I'd never for over 100 bucks for meager add-ons, but there's plenty of people who like little items like these and are happy to pay for it.

It's not like you HAVE to buy it?

You know, there are some parts of the Ultimate Loot Chest that I disapprove of being in a "Collector's Edition", but man... I really want a loot chest.
