Gearbox Announces Collector’s, Limited Editions of Borderlands 2

Gearbox has thrown out a bunch of new information about what you’ll get when you pre-order Borderlands 2, and it’s also rolling out two special editions of the game that will be available at launch: a Limited Edition and a Collector’s Edition. Both come with a mess of free crap. Let’s take a look!

First up is the Premiere Club, shown in the image above, which details what you get if you pre-order Borderlands 2 from Best Buy, GameStop, or Amazon.com. It includes the following in-game items:

  • A golden key that gets you a special rare item in the Sanctuary Loot Chest.
  • Vault Hunter’s Relic, which boosts your ability to find good stuff in the game.
  • The Gearbox Gunpack, a bunch of powerful weapons.
  • The Mechromancer class as a free download (whenever she becomes available).

GameStop pre-orders get something extra special: access to an in-game area called the Creature Slaughter Dome, where it sounds like you’ll do some arena-style gladiator matches against various monsters and earn in-game rewards for victory. It also comes with Moxxi’s Rocket Launcher.

Those things are yours with any pre-order, but the two physical special edition versions of Borderlands 2 also come packed with physical stuff. The first is the Collector’s Edition set, with all its extra crap shown in the image below.

You get:

  • A Marcus Kincaid Bobblehead.
  • A collectible sticker set.
  • A download code for a digital comic based on Borderlands 2.
  • The “Inside the Vault” art book.
  • A map of Pandora.
  • “Bonus in-game content,” whatever that might be.

And then there’s the REALLY big set: the Limited Edition Borderlands 2. Here’s what it looks like.

This one packs all the stuff from the Collector’s Edition, plus:

  • A replica red Loot Chest from the game.
  • A “Creatures of Pandora” ID chart.
  • A lithograph postcard set.
  • “Field Notes from Sir Hammerlock.”
  • A numbered certificate of authenticity.

The only thing we don’t know about all these sets: what they’ll cost. They’re not currently listed on any of the three pre-order-able retailers’ websites.
