About Borderlands 2

Borderlands 2 furthers the distinct blending of First Person Shooter and Role Playing genres to create the true evolution of the Role Playing Shooter. Team up with other players for online co-op goodness as you spend hours leveling up your character and equipping them with one of the millions of badass weapons. Borderlands 2 features a new visually stunning array of procedurally generated guns, shields, grenades, artifacts, enemies and more. Choose one of four character classes to be taken through a carefully crafted and connected story to all new and surprising environments across the living planet of Pandora. Make new friends, arm them to the teeth and fight alongside them on your relentless quest for revenge and redemption.

If it seems like the loot gods have smiled upon you recently, Vault Hunter, it's because they have! Well, sort of. The team has been doing some thinkering with legendary drop rates recently, and will continue to do so through May 13!

Over the next few weeks (based on the schedule below) we'll be testing out a different percentage increase to the drop rate of legendaries across the board in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita (BL2 Only), Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

We can't say exactly how much the drop rate has increased week to week, but can assure you that the adjustments will never sink below the default rate!

Adjustments will be made through hot fixes that will be set live on Thursdays on the following schedule:

  • Week One: April 9 through April 15
  • Week Two: April 16 through April 22
  • Week Three: April 23 through April 29 -- LIVE NOW!
  • Week Four: April 30 through May 6
  • Week Five: May 7 through May 13

We're looking for your feedback each week, so please share thoughts and experience with us through the weekly surveys below. These surveys will be open on Monday through Wednesday each week.

  • Week One Survey Closed
  • Week Two Survey Closed
  • Week Three Survey Open April 27 - April 29
  • Week Four Survey Open May 4 - May 6
  • Week Five Survey Open May 11 - May 13

 Since we announced Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, one of the questions we’ve gotten the most often from our fans is “when is it coming to next-gen?” Well, get your Xbox Ones and PlayStation 4s ready – not only is Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel coming, but so is Borderlands 2! Both titles are making their way over to next-gen consoles in one package as Borderlands: The Handsome Collection on March 24, 2015 in North America and March 27, 2015 internationally!

We’re excited to offer fans The Handsome Collection as it bundles the complete story of the franchise’s most iconic villain, Handsome Jack, and all in stunning high definition, with high performance and graphical fidelity never before seen on consoles!  On top of that, for the first time ever in a Borderlands game, The Handsome Collection offers four-player local split screen meaning four friends can shoot-n-loot together on a single television.

Already started Borderlands 2 and/or Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita or Xbox 360? Good news: using cross-save functionality, you’ll be able to continue where you left off by transferring your prior-gen save including your leveled up characters and Badass Rank to your next-gen console!  (Note that cross-save will only work within the same console family – e.g., Xbox 360 to Xbox One and PlayStation 3/Vita to PlayStation 4).

Not only are you getting both games for the price of one ($59.99), but The Handsome Collection also includes a boatload of add-on content as well. You’ll be getting all of the downloadable content for both titles* which is a whole lot. Feast your eyes on the list of packs included:

He is designed and detailed to look just like the Claptrap you know and love - or maybe hate - and now you have the power to control him from your iOS and/or Android device with a companion app called ClaptrApp. The remote controlled Claptrap also includes the following features:

  • Gyro technology to balance on one wheel allowing it to move wherever you want him to!
  • Voice samples of some of Claptrap’s most iconic lines that can be activated on command!
  • A real working camera in his “eye” that is streamed to your mobile phone, so you can see where Claptrap is headed!

The Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition also includes 12 exclusive Vault Hunter lithographs as well as a collectible steel case and will be available for $399 at selected retailers. Act fast, because these things won’t last long! The Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition will be available at participating retailers in North America as well as internationally.

You may have noticed that for The Pre-Sequel, we reference two upcoming add-ons above that haven’t been announced just yet. We’ll have more details on those very soon, so stay tuned!

*Includes all available downloadable content for Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel as of March 24, 2015. Xbox Live or PlayStation Network account as well as Internet connection is required to download certain add-on content at no additional cost.
