    Guess what, guys? There's going to be a second Borderlands game.

    2K officially announced today that the sequel to Gearbox's breakout action role-playing shooter is very much in development, and will be headed to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in fiscal 2012 (translation: sometime after April next year).

    No Caption Provided

    In addition to the basic announcement, Game Informer revealed Borderlands 2 as its September cover exclusive, dropping a few details on what we can expect from the sequel.

    Don’t expect just a couple bazillion more guns this time around. Gearbox is introducing new and more diverse environments, smarter and more powerful enemies, and an improved mission system capable of delivering a better story.

    Borderlands 2 will get its official live debut to the world later this month at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, and will also make its way to PAX Prime this year. Anyone heading to either of those shows that feels like letting out a big, honking squee of excitement right now will be forgiven for doing so. Just, you know...clean up your mess afterward, okay?

    I must have played the game wrong, because I thought it was one of the best single-player FPSes I've ever seen.

    I really liked the first one and played solo through it more than once (a rarity for me).  I just hope it's different enough from the original and from Id's Rage to reignite my interest in the franchise.

    The game was created from the ground up to be played with others, this sort of criticism ain't fair.

    Having said that, I think it was perfectly fine as a single player experience.

    Well I don't have others to play it with, so what's wrong with me wanting them to improve the experience for single player? I didn't think playing solo was fine and it was immensely boring. If developers will let players play single player, then they also need to take the time to make sure that their game is fun in that mode. If they don't want to support it, then they should just disable all players from playing single player.

    90% of the time I spent with the game was playing solo, mostly because I always had really bad lag issues online for some reason. I still had a blast with it.

    THIS.  I would like it if Borderlands 2 was better than the first one for solo players.  Maybe the first one was a great game for people who have dedicated playgroups on XBL or PSN, but trying to get into random games with random XBL douche-turds really turned me off to the first one.

    I know this is against the popular idea among the hardcore that Borderlands is one of the greatest things ever... But by the time I was finished with that game I was so sick of it that I'll probably never go back to it again. And unless the sequel is far different I'll probably have to pass.

    Dear Gearbox,

    Please auto-scoop loot. And include a button to buy max ammo. Oh and a shared vault that you can swap gear across your characters.

    Besides those minor things, Borderlands was quite possibly the perfect game, for my money.

    More Borderlands can only be a good thing.

    Slightly off-topic but it's weird that Eurogamer had a story that Borderlands 2 would be at Gamescom, which they got from an unnamed source, and a lot of games journalists and even Randy Pitchford were hating on them for it even though it was totally true.

    Can we cut the whole "This is a thing" now? It's really fucking annoying.

    Yep. 
     
    On topic: Borderlands was a pretty dull. I think at this point basically any loot-driven RPG is just a big old turd to me though. I'm not at all excited about Diablo 3, since I feel the whole genre lends itself to a repetitive and empty experience.
