You and your co-op couch companion will be able to go online together and connect with two other players in Borderlands 2 – as long as they aren’t also split-screen co-op’ing.
This was told to Joystiq by Gearbox’s Steve Gibson at Gamescom.
Some new screenshots from Borderlands 2 have appeared on the internet and they are positively alive with colour and variety. Along with the varied settings, there also appears to be the glimpse of another playable character, as well as a new vehicle and enemies.
Some footage to tease you. The Gunzerker and dual wielding guns. And that’s almost all.
Gearbox (partly) sold the first Borderlands on the number of guns available in the game. How many? “87 bazillion” – of which I have acquired around 0.001% of them. They’ve already said that guns from the first game will not be making an appearance in the second one, and now more details of the weapons have been released by Game Informer.
The manufacturer’s will already be familiar to those that played the first game, but each will now focus more on a “distinct visual ID and clearly-defined characteristics”. Along with that, a new “manufacturer” joins the list – Bandits.
That’s if a source close to Gearbox Software is to be believed. The source says that an announcement from 2K Games regarding Borderlands 2 is imminent, and the RPG shooter can be expected to arrive next year on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
