Borderlands 2 Gets All New Playable Characters

OK, so Game Informer has spilled the beans about what’s up with Borderlands 2, and here’s what we learned:

  • There’ll be four brand new playable characters this time, as you might have expected based on that new guy being on the GI cover. The original four characters will make appearances in the game, though.
  • Speaking of that new guy on the cover, his name is Salvador, and he can dual wield everything.
  • The entire arsenal from the first game is gone. They’re making a million new randomly generated guns for Borderlands 2, and you can even stick custom decals on them.
  • More vehicles.
  • Claptrap is back.

I feel pretty neutral about all that stuff. But that’s pretty much how I feel about the game, too. I enjoyed Borderlands, but I don’t really feel like I need more of it. We’ll see if Gearbox can dazzle me into a purchase down the line.

Eh, if it’s as good as the first, I don’t mind, but they’ll have a hard time keeping the feel and humor of the first.

I was half-hoping his name was Big Jack. I was also hoping the old characters would be playable.

Will this game actually have an ending this time?
