Game description


"The one thing worth pointing out between the various platforms is how cool Borderlands 2 can look if you have an awesome PC. The PC version allows plenty of tweaks to draw distance, frame rate and more." - IGN.com

"Borderlands 2 doesn't reach far beyond its predecessor's scope, but it does do almost everything better. Additions, refinements, and fixes all combine to create an appreciably improved experience, one that fully delivers on the promise of the first game." - Gamespot.com


A new era of shoot and loot is about to begin. Play as one of four new vault hunters facing off against a massive new world of creatures, psychos and the evil mastermind, Handsome Jack. Make new friends, arm them with a bazillion weapons and fight alongside them in 4 player co-op on a relentless quest for revenge and redemption across the undiscovered and unpredictable living planet.


Borderlands 2 follows the story of four new Vault Hunters as they fight to free Pandora from the clutches of Handsome Jack, the brilliant, charismatic, and utterly despicable CEO of the Hyperion Corporation. Players will fight across the whole of Pandora to stop Jack from awakening an ancient alien evil known only as "the Warrior." Their quest will bring them into contact with some familiar faces from the old game – most notably, the original four Vault Hunters: Roland, Lilith, Brick and Mordecai. They, along with some brand new characters, will help players defeat Jack, destroy the Warrior, and save Pandora.

Key Features

  • All-New Characters and Classes:

    Four all new playable classes including the Siren, the Commando, the Gunzerker and the Assassin. Step into the role of the Gunzerker, whose highly deadly skills allow him to dual-wield any two weapons found in the game. Not only that, you will build on that skill to do more things with two guns than you ever imagined possible. Dual machine guns? Cool. Dual rocket launchers? Of course! Dual Sniper Rifles? Sure, if that’s your thing! Want to try other styles? More tactical perhaps? There are multiple classes to choose from!

  • Play Online with Friends:

    Share your adventures with friends both online and via LAN through a seamless system enabling you to drop in and drop out of a campaign without ever having to restart the game.

  • World Connected Story:

    Left for dead in the frozen tundra of Pandora, begin your quest of revenge and redemption as the story drives you closer to the Hyperion Corporation and its evil founder, Handsome Jack.

  • New Badass Gun System:

    Millions upon millions of possible weapons means tons of new and innovative ways to engage foes on Pandora. Fire, electricity, corrosive acid, and more will all be at your disposal.

  • 87 Bazillion...Everything:

    In addition to the new gun system, you will lust after procedurally generated shields, grenades, Relics, class mods and much, much more. And you thought the original Borderlands had a ton of loot!

  • Brand new environments:

    From the arctic tundra, through the dangerous grasslands, past the mysterious corrosive caverns to beyond, discover more of the unpredictable world of Pandora at every turn!

  • Brand new enemies:

    Hulking, gorilla-like Bullymongs, vicious predatory Stalkers and the Hyperion mechanical army, run by Handsome Jack, are just some of the new enemies you will face.

A videogame made to play with friends


Speaking of their gameplay the game moves very well, their graphic comic style look just amazing. The game is very good to play alone but the real soul of this is to play it with friends. A mistake I found in the multiplayer is that one can be at a much higher level than that of your friends and that disrupts the game a lot and makes it very unequal.

Off-beat Fun


Borderlands was a series that put me off for a while because of it's art style. Plus, the first game didn't really interest me in terms of story and gameplay. I just didn't like the Borderlands series. My mind was changed the first time I played Borderlands 2. It improves on the first one in every conceivable way. Better story, better villain, better guns, better enemies, better locations, etc. I couldn't put it down. It's a fun shooter with off-beat humor and an emphasis on cooperative play with friends. This is a game everybody should play at least once.

Linear. Ugly. Not funny. Repetitive.


This is not a game for everyone. I absolutely hated every second I experienced. The story is so boring its forgettable. The game is incredibly linear with load screens all over. The art style and graphics are horrible. The humor is juvenile and ever funny. Not to mention, the gameplay is repetitive and never improves. The only positive I can attribute to this game is weapon customization. Outside of that, everything else is horrendous. There are far better shooters and coop experiences that you can play. This game is not what it's cracked up to be and I wouldn't even waste $5 on it if it's on sale.

A great experience with friends


This is a looter-shooter, plain and simple. It does that part very well, and can be engaging for hundreds of hours. I highly suggest playing with friends, since it has that MMO feel. The humor in these games aren't particularly for me, but I know some people really enjoy it.

Borderlands 2


The Borderlands series just keep on getting better and better. I wonder if a new one will be released. Anyways, Borderlands 2 continues with a new tremendous story, with some of the characters of Borderlands 1 still being there. BIG story once again, A LOT of main quests/side quests. It's absolutely what Borderlands needs to have. I completed the whole campaign only as CO OP, and it was absolutely phenomenal. I spent hours and hours exploring places, looting things, killing everyone that came to get me, searching for guns, completing every quest. Playing CO OP is extremely fun as well, don't get it wrong. There are few characters to choose, and each one of them have some special abilities/weapons, and in total, it can work well being a "squad". The graphics feel a bit more... "fresh". Not that they were bad, but it's like the colors, or something like that, that feel... revamped (I mean it in a good way). Shooting mechanics are either improved (opinions vary) or feel the same (I still mean that too in a good way). A lot of challenge is within the game, and of course some of the Steam achievements are nasty. It might push you to the edge to complete them, but as you play and get along with the game, I believe it will be a piece of cake to complete a lot of them. Bosses are not that hard all the time, and sometimes they drop good loot, so, you might wanna not forget checking the loot they give. It still got plenty of humour, as this is a classic now element in the Borderlands games. The Robots are still there, guiding you or giving you quests to complete, in case anyone wondered. Last but not least, Borderlands 2 got some nice DLC's, so, if you find it at a good sale, consider purchasing the GameOfTheYear Edition. I personally prefer Borderlands 1 over Borderlands 2, but it's just a personal preference. Borderlands 2 is not in a any way disappointing or bad. It's very good, and some would say it's "improved in some aspects". Nevertheless, it's getting 5 out of 5 stars from me. Can't wait for a new Borderlands game!
