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.
The Psycho Pack introduces Krieg, the new Psycho Bandit character class, further expanding the four-player cooperative shooter-looter experience.
Wielding a buzz axe and harnessing his psychotic multiple personalities, Krieg is a badass melee mauler with ranged attack capabilities that can rip foes to shreds with his deadly Buzz Axe Rampage action skill. Players can stack combat bonuses with Krieg’s Bloodlust skill tree, live on the edge of insanity with the Mania tree, or engulf both enemies and yourself in flames with the Hellborn tree.
Vault Hunters can also shoot and loot their way to new heights in Borderlands 2 when the level cap is raised to 61 on April 2 via the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack – included as part of the Season Pass, or $5 the regular way. In addition to increasing the level cap from 50 to 61, the upcoming downloadable content pack will also unlock a third play through via the new Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode!
The Psycho Pack will be available in May for $9.99 (800 Microsoft points).
In June Gearbox will release the final part of the Season Pass, but no further details on the DLC were revealed.
