Borderlands 2 Details Emerge

If you’re feeling all hot and bothered under the collar about the recent announcement of Borderlands 2 and just can’t wait to read that juicy twelve page spread that Game Informer will be running then you may be slightly please to learn that a few details about the game have emerged.

Four-player co-op will be making a triumphant return, but the original four vault hunters won’t occupying those spaces, instead they’ll be NPC’s  in the game. But that’s good news for us as it means new characters and new classes to play as. Gearbox is promising quite a few new classes to have fun with, but at the moment only one is known; Salvador, a Gunzerker,  is a small, slightly insane looking Dwarf who is capable of dual wielding any weapon.

Speaking of weapons, Gearbox has decided that they need a bit of tweaking as well.The’ve now completely revamped the weapon generation system from Borderlands so that different weapon manufacturers will now have a distinctive look and personality.  Enemies will now also have access to their own unique brand of weapons, so get ready for some deadly firepower. Firepower isn’t everything though, so Borderlands 2′s enemies are now going to be smarter and more capable in a fight.

Improvements will also be made to the games general interactions with NPC’s and quests. Friendly NPC’s will now actually be capable of speech and will hopefully make towns feel like a much interesting place to hang around.

A new currency, called Iridium, will also be introduced and you can be used to upgrade weapons and vehicles. Presumably by glueing it on or something.

Speaking of vehicles, a wider variety of them is promised. Here’s hoping for some tweaked handling and physics resulting in some sweet racing and destruction derby style missions.

Gearbox are also promising more dynamic missions as well as dialogue options for the players to select. Hopefully this will all result in a deeper and more satisfying story.

Well, that’s everything for now, so I’m off back to Pandora to brush up on my gun looting skills.

About Baden Ronie

I always hate writing about myself, it's such a pain in the ass to know where I should start. I'm twenty-two years young and love to play, as you may have already guessed. When WolfsGamingBlog.com started up it was simply because I found writing to be a good form of stress relief for when my Cystic Fibrosis was getting me down or simply because I had been having a bad week. When I started writing I never dreamed that people would actually read it, or that it would ever get this big. It's mind boggling. My writing isn't the best, but through trial, error and the comments of readers I strive to improve it so I can provide fair reviews. My ultimate goal is to prove that not everyone in the gaming media are corrupt idiots intent on delivering false reviews. Other than that I'm a fully qualified lifeguard and used to teach first-aid and life-saving skills to kids. What more is there to say? Hmmm, well I love music, reading and films. I'm a drummer, enjoy going swimming and tend to get distracted by shiny objects. Is that a fifty-pence?
