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.
- 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.
