Sir Hammerlock gives you the full Borderlands 2 rundown

If you haven't been keeping up with Borderlands 2, Gearbox has released a new video introducing you to everything you have missed with the upcoming open-world, first-person shooter/RPG. Although the trailer is aimed at players who may be new to Borderlands, veteran vault hunters can get a nice, lengthy look at the world they will soon be exploring.

You think you know the Borderlands?

Join Sir Hammerlock — hunter, scholar, and gentleman — as he gives you a long tour of Pandora, which has changed quite considerably since we've last visited. Once nothing but brown rock, Pandora is now filled with lush environments ranging from the city of Opportunity to the dangerous Caustic Caverns.

And this revamped planet is now filled with thousands of ways that "probably kill you in horrifying ways". Now taken over by Handsome Jack, it's up to you — because you are a badass — to stop him. Sir Hammerlock presents you with the four different playable characters highlighting each of their abilities they bring to Borderlands 2.

In short, this video pretty much sums up everything you need to know heading into Borderlands 2 which releases on September 18, 2012. Yesterday Gearbox and 2K Games announced the Borderlands 2 Season Pass which will give you access to four new add-on content campaigns that will be released following the launch of Borderlands 2.
