Borderlands 2 Collector's Editions detailed
Upcoming co-op shooter Borderlands 2 will have two special editions at launch, 2K Games and Gearbox announced today. Both editions, detailed today, will reward fans with a number of collectible and in-game bonus items that will "enhance the action-packed experience" of Borderlands 2, the highly anticipated sequel to 2009's shooter-looter.
The Deluxe Vault Hunter's Collector's Edition, which will retail for $99.99, includes a copy of Borderlands 2; authentic Marcus Kincaid bobblehead; Inside the Vault: The Art & Design of Borderlands 2 hardbound book; collectable sticker set; map of Pandora; digital comic download code; and bonus downloadable in-game digital content.
The Ulitmate Loot Chest Limited Edition is the more expensive of the two, retailing at $149.99. This will include all of the items in the Deluxe Vault Hunter's Collector's Edition, plus a collectable scaled replica of the red loot chests found throughout Pandora in Borderlands 2; steel book case; Creatures of Pandora wide-format ID chart; lithograph postcard set; field notes from Sir Hammerlock; cloth map of Pandora; and a numbered certificate of authenticity.
Both of the special editions will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Gamers who pre-order either special edition or the standard edition of Borderlands 2 from participating retailers will also gain access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, which will give you access to the following items: Gearbox Gun Pack, a Golden Key, the Vault Hunter’s Relic and an all-new fifth character class - the Mechromancer.
The Gearbox Gun Pack is a collection of unique guns to help players begin their journey on Pandora. The Golden Key is used to unlock a rare in-game item in the mysterious Golden Sanctuary Loot Chest found in Borderlands 2. The Vault Hunter’s Relic is an in-game item that boosts players’ gear-hunting fortune while playing solo or teaming up with friends.
The Mechromancer, a new class revealed at PAX East, will likely be released after the launch of Borderlands 2, but will be free to those who pre-order Borderlands 2. It will also be available for purchase afterwards.
