'Borderlands 2' is Coming September 18th

New trailer promises 870 bajillion more guns. Also, more skills, for the payment of larger bills.

When 'Borderlands' was first shown at E3, no one cared. It had a dull design aesthetic and there was nothing at all to separate it from the pack. The folks at Gearbox took that criticism to heart and altered the game significantly, creating a unique title that felt almost like an FPS version of 'Diablo.'

The highly anticipated 'Borderlands 2 is due out this year and the developers and publisher have finally set a date. You can get back to your CL4P-TP abusing, skag killing and ride catchin' on September 18th. And of course, there are preorder bonuses.

If you preorder the game from either Amazon or GameStop, you'll be a part of the Premiere Club, which gives you a few new guns to play with, the drop-boosting Vault Hunter's Relic and the Golden Key, which unlocks a rare item.
