Borderlands 2 Has Officially Gone Gold, Gungasms Imminent
Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford took to Twitter a few days ago and let all his followers know that Borderlands 2 has officially gone gold. The game brings a bazillion guns with it, along with new classes, new vehicles, new enemies, new environments and new everything. The most important part, though, are all the new guns.
Last month on this very same day Pitchford announced that the game had been shipped off for certification, a process that usually takes a few weeks. After the game goes gold it then takes another few weeks to get it to the manufacturing plants and have a bunch of copies made. Pitchford was also forward-thinking enough to announce that while the game had been shipped off for certification, they would be conceptualizing and implementing the Mechromancer and aiming to assure fans that the DLC would not be disc-locked content. The verdict is still out on that.
On August 17th, Pitchford confirmed via Twitter [via PC Gamer] that the game has officially gone gold and all design and development is done and complete, saying...
Borderlands 2 is now GOLD (360, PS3 EU, PS3 NA, Win PC)! PSN, PS3 JP + others imminent. Official statement to come when all ballots are in.
Meh, do we really need to wait for an official statement? I'd spare paying the marketing guy a bit by just using the tweet to spread the word. I mean, if I wanted to save a few bucks and all.
Borderlands 2 will take gamers back to Pandora where they'll face off against Handsome Jack, the head honcho of Hyperion. The game bolsters a ton of new features, PC-exclusive PhysX support, split-screen play for consoles (and PC if you tweak it a bit), and all the gungasmic, loot-and-grind action you could possibly hope for.
Borderlands 2 is set for release in North America for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on September 18th. Need more info? Feel free to visit the Official Website.
