Borderlands 2 card game gets exclusive 'Guns Guns Guns' Top Trumps pack, but not available in the U.S.
Independent gaming stores in the UK will be offering Borderlands 2 Top Trumps decks to those who pre-order the game, publisher 2K Games announced today.
The strictly limited-edition version of the collectible card trading game is a result of a partnership between 2K Games and Top Trumps, designed to support the UK's Indie game stores.
“The Limited Edition Borderlands 2 Top Trump cards are a fantastic way for the Indies to give something extra to their customers and we’re delighted to offer this exclusive pre-order incentive to our customers”, said Paul Langley, Leisure Software Divisional Manager of GEM Distribution, who will be responsible for supplying the cards to the UK’s Indie stores.
The Top Trumps 'Guns Guns Guns' pack will feature 30 of Borderland 2's "most outlandish weapons", and it will only be available when the game is pre-ordered. That's right, this will not be for sale at retail.
“Only 5000 packs of cards will be distributed across the country and will be available on a first-come-first served basis to those who pre-order Borderlands 2, said 2K's UK PR Manager Ben Lawrence. "Once they’re gone, they’re gone so I’d encourage people to check with their local Indie store to see if they’re stocking the cards. We want to turn everyone in Vault Hunters!”
Borderlands 2 launches internationally on September 21 and in North America on September 18. Earlier today Borderlands 2 developer Gearbox unveiled the 16-bit lo-fi game that started it all, The Border Lands.
