Living up to the mantra “bigger, better and more badass,” Borderlands 2 features all-new characters; skills; imaginative, diverse new environments with unique missions and enemies; and more exciting and fun weapons, equipment and loot than ever before. All of these features come together in a story that takes players to the world of Pandora to take down the notorious Handsome Jack and his corrupt Hyperion Corporation as a solo campaign or with up to four cooperative players.
Borderlands 2 will allow friends to play together locally via split-screen, as well as online with drop-in-drop-out capabilities. With seamless cooperative gameplay and action, Borderlands 2 is extremely accessible for gamers and their friends to play alone or together in a variety of configurations.
Hungry for more, Vault Hunters? You won’t have to wait long – The Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler, the second Headhunter add-on for Borderlands 2, will be available beginning November 26th (27th in Europe) for just USD $2.99 / GBP £2.39 / EUR 2,99 € on PC and Mac via Steam, Xbox Live Marketplace, and PlayStation Network!
Seasonal festivities are one of the major inspirations behind the Headhunter series. Inthe second Headhunter add-on, Mr. Torgue hosts a hunger-themed competition to hunt down a giant turkey, the Wattle Gobbler, and selects sacrificial recruits from all of the districts of Pandora to participate!
There’s also a strong theme of family, embodied by characters like Mr. Torgue’s super buff grandmother, Grandma Flexington, which you meet in this downloadable content for the very first time. Grandma Flexington reminds us that we should be nice to Grandma during the holidays, even if she rambles on for way too long. (This may be a tiny spoiler, but the actress that did voice over for Grandma Flexington performed that part so much better than we ever imagined and we can’t wait for players to finally meet her.)
New character heads and skins will also be available as symbols of your triumph – provided you’re successful in taking down the Wattle Gobbler, that is. You’re welcome to try it solo, but we of course recommend bringing friends.
