Posted on September 5, 2011 AT 01:16am

THE BUZZ: Some brand new details have appeared online regarding Borderlands 2. The new details are taken from the playable demo that was available at PAX last weekend.

Here’s the info that came out:

  • It was the PC version running on Nvidia hardware
  • Similar AA to the first game (aliased black lines)
  • Significant NPCs have clever intro videos like in B1
  • Basically the exact same UI but it now has a mini-map
  • Some enemies can throw environmental objects at you
  • Tediore weapons allow you to throw guns/mags as grenades
  • ‘Bandit’ is a new weapon manufacturer with very large mags
  • Torque guns all have exploding bullets that are somewhat slow
  • Vladorf guns all have rotating barrels with high rates of fire
  • Psychos will now dodge and they can be tactically wounded
  • Maya replaces Lilith as the Siren character, can phasewalk
  • Kamikaze robots act like zombies (eg, crawl if legs missing)
  • Gunzerker class cannot zoom while dual-wielding weapons
  • Can still equip four weapons and they are paired for DWing

EGM’s TAKE: Gearbox has made a lot of improvements in Borderlands 2 from what has been shown so far however only time we tell if the sequel can deliver.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
