Subject: Borderlands 2

The first bit of Borderlands 2 details have come out of the latest issue of Game Informer.

Co-op will stick to four players, the magazine hints. A new set of protagonists will star, with the four characters from the first game becoming non-playable characters. The bearded dwarf fellow (above) is Salvador, the Gunzerker. His special ability allows him to dual-wield any weapon. You’ll take on dynamic story missions; for example, during a rescue mission, if you take too long and fail to arrive on time, the story will shape to your failure.

A new element, known as Eridium, has been added. While it’s not a weapon, it can be applied to other elements, such as guns or vehicle, to improve their stats. It’s also used as a form of currency.

Enemies will take on a much more varied form. AI’s been greatly improved. Bandits can access their own type of weaponry. Enemies, in general, are more responsive and interact better with each other. Non-playable characters are also improved; they’ll be up and about, moving around, offering players interactive dialogue.

Weapons from the first Borderlands will not appear in Borderlands 2. Gearbox is scrapping the weapons from the first game in favor of all-new weapons. Each gun manufacturer in-game will have their own themes — unique styling, colors, and personality, that is. Weapons will have custom decals and enhancements, as well. Some pickups will have temporary buffs. such as the cores in the original game’s General Knoxx expansion. The magazine makes no mention of gun crafting.

Vehicles are back, and with variety. One vehicle shown in the magazine is called the “Bandit Technical.” Another vehicle was shown with four seats.

The skill tree in Borderlands 2 will be similar to that in the first game. It uses a traditional 3-branch system.

If it wasn’t expected, Claptrap is back in some shape or form. On that note, the game is promised to be of epic scale.

Stay tuned.

I was super excited to see the 11 page teaser in this months Game Informer of Borderlands 2. I wanted to dissect these pages and write down some of the new changes that are coming and share them to all you Borderlands fans.

Part of the new story is learning who the vault hunters were and are now. Lilith, Roland, Brick and Mordecai are now fully animated, they move around their locations, interact with their surroundings and respond to your action which means fewer cut scenes so players won't get taken out of the action. That means the original 4 won't be playable characters so we get to be introduced to new ones.

One of the new New characters, Salvador will have a dual wielding ability, like a timed rage mode similar to Bricks berserk mode which allows him to shoot two weapons independently using the left and right triggers. Any guns can be used, rocket launchers to mini-guns.

Enemies can now dodge incoming fire and traverse more complex environments.

During missions if the player takes too long to complete the plot, it will change, requiring them to deal with their failure in a later mission.

The article talked about some new enemies that will be introduced but the one that caught my eye was called the Surveyor.

A new droid (similar to the lance droids in Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC) dubbed the Surveyor can do more than attack, When alone on the battlefield surveyors deploy an energy shield that reflects incoming fire back at the player. If other robots are in the area, Surveyors switch to a supporting role, repairing injured allies with its energy bean.

The story missions in Borderlands 2 are about three times the scope of a single story mission the first game and they twist and turn throughout, your game playing is changing, your goals are changing

Bandit Technical is a new class of vehicle with higher resolution models and textures, better collision detection and the ability to "powerslide".

Four seats will be standard on all vehicles, like most of us that played the first one we either had to leave our friends behind or push them through the maps.

The skill tree will be back but will have features, more defined abilities as opposed to simple stats boosts.

A new element along with shock, explosive and corrosive damage called Eridium. Doesn't add any damage to the base attack value, instead the alien material augments other elemental damage. Along with it being a currency in Pandora. The most powerful weapons in the world can only be purchased with Eridium, which is scattered throughout the planet.

Class mods and artifacts are making a return. Class mods are aimed at introducing more tweaks to subclasses by allowing players to activate more skills in their skill trees while artifacts now act as a catch-all for any idea that didn't fit into the other systems. Artifact ideas include a chance players shots don't cost ammo, increases after burner length in vehicles and an aura of healing around the player.

Giving each firearm manufacturer its own sense of identity. For an example, Vladoff weapons feature the highest rates of fire, Hyperion weapons featured greater recoil reduction and accuracy.. etc. These features were in the original game but will be more apparent in the new one.

With the new Tediore guns, rather than reloading, the player can throw the firearm onto the battlefield, where it explodes like a grenade.

Guns can now have custom decals and enhancements.

The developer said it plans to fix some of the nagging problems in the original Borderlands including the cumbersome split-screen support and certain missions being ineligible for players depending on their level or place in the story.

LOL!!! he passed out when we were right next to an enemy camp. he was using his broken controller with the "auto-walk feature" and just going around in circles. they would respawn every five minutes so i couldn't wander to far away.

Maya

Like Lilith from the first game, Maya is a siren class character, but the phasewalk ability has been replaced with something called phaselock. At its basic levels this locks enemies in place, enabling crowd control. She'll suspend them in an orb of siren-y, phase-y, magic-y cool stuff. It allows everybody to shoot that person, because they can no longer fight back

At later levels, Maya can do even cooler things with phaselock. For example, if you put points in the helios skill, each use of the phaselock is joined by a damage-dealing explosion. If you'd rather focus on healing you can gain the ability to use phaselock to resurrect allies from a distance


Zer0

Easily standing out among the choices, Zer0 is a strange cyborg ninja who wields a sword. Enemies wont be dropping melee weapons, but zero has long-range capabilities as well. You can get a skill where if you hit someone with a melee it increases your gun damage and if you shoot someone with a gun it increases your melee damage. Then you can juggle between melee and guns until your shields go down and all of sudden you're doing a **** load of damage

Zero also has traditional stealth abilities including the ability to create a clone of himself to distract enemies and being able to go invisible at will. Hes definitely a character that's more about finesse. You have to plot and plan a bit more. His sword skills and his sneaking, Zer0 could be the most complex and interesting addition to the Borderlands 2 crew.

Axton

He may look like he has a lot in common with Roland, but Axton is actually a new  class call called commando. Though he also uses a turret, Axtons skills let him do crazy new stuff with it. You can spec into the longbow skill, which lets your turret basically teleport to a place and appear there rather than having to throw it down manually. Another skill allows you to latch the turret onto walls or ceilings.

Other things I read

Less cut scenes

All 4 teammates can join you in a vehicle, one person driving, one person in a turret and the two people can be in the bed of the truck shooting off whatever rounds they have from their own guns.  Sadly, the hovership that was shown in the official trailer remain exclusive to enemies :(

All the popular DLC characters will return, even the dead ones lol like Dr. Ned who of course has no relation to Dr. Zed LOL!!!!

Found this Q&A session on the official Playstation Blog about B2!

Can we expect better more consistent frame rate this time around?
       
That’s certainly the plan! We’re entering the phase of development right now where we are focusing on frame rate and stability, so it’s too early for me to give any final numbers, but you will see an improvement over the first game.

Can a second player on local splitscreen be logged in to a separate PSN ID and gain Trophies and stats?

We’re looking into this as well, but right now the answer is no.

The only important question: will voice communication be fixed? It was unusable in BL1.

Good timing – you’ll hopefully be pleased to know that a portion of our programming team is working on voice chat issues right now so they will be working for everyone when the game launches!

Will there be more character customization (individual skills, armor, etc) than in the first one?

You’ll be able to choose from a large variety of swappable heads/hairstyles/headgear in addition to choosing from hundreds of unique color and decal themes, and both together offer a ton of options for customization. As for skills, each class offers a bigger quantity and more interesting variety of skills to choose from in the skill trees.

Will vehicle-based gameplay be enhanced? It was fairly basic in the original game.


We’re introducing a new vehicle, the Technical, which can hold 4 players at once and also has a few weapon configurations to choose from. Some are better than others depending on the types of enemies you’ll face and the environment you’ll be fighting in. On the other hand, Borderlands is mainly a game about weapons and loot so we don’t want to force people to stay in vehicles for too long.

Will there be a shortcut button for health kits? Going thru your backpack sucks, especially during battles!

Yeah, that sucked. Pausing wasn’t really fun in combat. It was a tough decision, but we decided to remove carryable health packs and instead fill that need with new relics and shields that can help keep you out of that emergency state to begin with. The result is a more fluid combat experience since now you’re not worrying about when the best time to pause the game is and you still get that fun sense of preparing for a battle by choosing the right gear.

Health Packs will still appear and drop and they will now heal you up in the middle of battle.

What enhancements have you made to the weapon interface, inventory, and pickup system?

We have a completely new inventory screen and all of the other interface screens have received various upgrades. There’s a lot more useful data for gear comparison and also more descriptive text on the item cards as well. Having said that, the best way to know what a gun does is to use it – and some weapons are *very* special…

Money and ammo now automatically pick up if dropped from enemies as well!

Will the environments be more varied, instead of one big desert?

Absolutely! We’ve shown a tundra, cavern, grasslands, and Hyperion tech environments so far, but
there are many more in the game – I think you’ll enjoy the environmental diversity in BL2.

What are you doing to extend the variety of enemy types and combat encounters?

There are brand new enemy families in Borderlands 2, and the total count of unique enemies
(including special elemental variants with unique AI) is in the triple digits.
New environments + new enemy types and behaviors = much more varied combat encounters!

So when will we get the Mechromancer class and is it a exclusive to any version of the game?

We’re hoping to release her to the world as soon as possible – but we have to get the
game through the certification process as right now she only exists as a sketch and we need to finish up Borderlands 2!

The good news is that the Mechromancer will be compatible with all versions of the game and she will be free if you preorder at participating retailers through the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club!

Is the story going to be more cut-scene based like UNCHARTED, or more audio log based like
the original BL?


We’re mixing it up a bit this time: few short cut scenes (and title cards) where necessary, lots of in-game moments, ECHO logs, missions, and environmental storytelling – not to mention the significant NPC improvements we made so it doesn’t just feel like a cardboard cut out of a dude is sending you on a quest.

What’s great is that we catered it towards both audiences that love story telling through NPCs and those who prefer to go kick some ass! If you choose to do the latter, you can run off as the NPC is talking to you and the discussion will appear as an ECHO transmission. No chains attached!

Will we be able to use custom soundtracks on PS3?

No, but hopefully you’ll like the huge amount of new music we’ve composed just for this game!

Will there be any in-game bonuses in Borderlands 2 if you have a save file and completed the first game?

Yes, if we detect a save file from the first game on your console then you’ll be rewarded
with a unique swappable head and skin for every class!

Will the max level be past 69?

We’re balancing the game to cap at level 50; in the first game we ended up pushing the cap
to 69 through post-launch patches and DLC. I don’t have DLC plans for Borderlands 2 yet
but we tend to want to one-up ourselves each time, so… we’ll see what happens!

This game is an absolute riot Tx.
The graphics seem to be an issue for a lot of people although Ive always thought they were way cool.
gave it a graphic novel feel which i really like.
 
the only negative is that the first one had a REALLY anti climactic ending and the follow On DLCs were mixed at best. Sort of goldilocks one terrible 1 great and 1 in the middle.
 
This and AC3 are my most anticipated non MP games.

I don't know why people have issues with the graphics. It adds a whole new feel to a FPS.  I agree with you fluffy about the DLCs, one thing I loved was the humor aspect, especially with Armory of General Knoxx, Chaz and Mr Shank! One thing I watched on that new video is that they are bringing back that sort of humor.

It's your job to collect the bad ass modded weapons and give them to me, if they allow it like they did in the first one.

That shotgun you gave me that does 7832759823479234 damage has been copied so many times lol
