A launch trailer for Borderlands 2 is now online, as Gearbox gears up for the release of their role-playing shooter sequel tomorrow in the U.S. and on Friday elsewhere. Word is: "The time is now to take out Handsome Jack. Gather up your friends as you run rampant through the world collecting bazillions of loot and guns in an effort to save Pandora from the evil grips of the Hyperion Corporation." Also, those in the London area on Sunday can snag a free copy of the game if they are willing to take a leap of faith with a bungee jump.

They're heavily featured in the story. They were initially going to make them playable characters but felt that it would lock them into design aspects from the prior game that they didn't want anymore. They kept them on and integrated them into the story so players wouldn't feel like they were abandoned or something.
