New Borderlands 2 Details

Posted on October 16, 2011 AT 07:46am

THE BUZZ: Several new Borderlands 2 details have appeared online courtesy of Computer and Videogames that showcases some of the game’s features:

  • The game features icy tundras, thick jungles and rocky mountains to explore
  • World is now streamed from the disc, so no more loading pauses
  • Features more dramatic natural architecture and imaginative character design. For example, when you free a captive they may temporarily fight on your side to get revenge on their captor.
  • Claptrap robots are back
  • Vehicles now have more responsive controls and the ability to drift around corners
  • AI foes are smarter, taking cover and working together intelligently
  • Enemies can now climb over complicated terrain
  • You can stun and cripple baddies with the new localized damage system
  • Old characters will return, but primarily in cameo roles

EGM’s TAKE: It appears that Gearbox have listened to the critics and is going all-out to fix many of the issues noted in the first game.
