This game blends the first person shooter perspective and the role playing genre to create the true evolution of Role playing shooter. Developed by Gearbox Studios and published by 2k games. It is the second game of the Borderlands game series and the sequel to 2009’s Borderlands. It is a game that has always something just a bit better, something you so desperately didn’t even know you needed until you found it in this game. Hunting for “loot” makes it more extraordinary. And you just have to simply decide the best or the most entertaining way to kill everyone. Good luck!! 😁
A short recap to what happened on this game.
Set five years after the events of Borderlands; Handsome Jack, the game’s main antagonist, has taken over the Hyperion Corporation, declared himself Dictator of Pandora and taken all of the credit for finding the Vault. Going so far as to claim responsibility for killing the Destroyer. Jack has also blotted out much of the light on the planet by having a giant orbiting H-shaped base set in front of Pandora’s stationary moon, creating a ‘big brother’ atmosphere throughout the planet. The new group of Vault Hunters in Borderlands 2 are tasked with killing Jack and returning peace to Pandora.
The game begins with the protagonists on a train to an unspecified location to begin their search for the vault. The train turns out to be a trap set by Handsome Jack, to kill all who search for the Vault. The Vault Hunters defend themselves long enough to reach a train car filled with explosives and a ‘dummy’ Handsome Jack look-a-like. The detonation causes the train to crash in the Arctic Wasteland, with our new team strewn across the wreckage. The game picks up with the Vault Hunters waking up to Claptrap digging through the remains. The mysterious Guardian Angel then contacts them and explains that Handsome Jack must be killed, directing players to rescue the four original Vault hunters from Hyperion’s clutches to accomplish this.
The cast of the 1st series of Borderlands have return in the form of non-player characters that the new characters will encounter on Pandora, and in various missions. This is the new era of shooting and looting with the new vault hunters, new gazillion weapons to choose from and new massive creatures and psychos to kill.
The game revolves around completion missions and collecting generated “loot” (weapons, shields and etc.) This game has 4 playable characters to choose from with different set of skills and unique abilities but all share in common “killing”. And the players will play the role of one out of four protagonist in the story.
• Axton the Commando, can summon a turret to provide offensive support.
• Zer0 the Assassin, can temporarily become invisible and spawn a hologram decoy to distract enemies.
• Maya the Siren, can “phase lock” enemies by trapping them in a sphere of energy for a few seconds.
• Salvador the Gunzerker, can use his titular ability to temporarily dual-wield weapons. And has highly deadly skills allow him to dual-wield any two weapons found in the game. Not only that, you will build on that skill to do more things with two guns than you ever possibly imagined.
This game has added new elements to the gameplay in multiplayer including
Slag a substance that increases the damage of enemies that is covered in it.
Eriduim bars a new currency of purchasing storage upgrade and other premium items.
Secret stash a small storage area for transferring items between characters.
And the major addition to the gameplay is the “BadassRank System”.
The game has also downloadable characters and features found in the game. A lot of new into this Borderlands 2 game. I am extremely happy for it! Players must be so eager to try and play this one as I am also!! I am a big fan of this game ever since and I would recommend this to everyone to hasn’t played it yet.
