2K Games and Gearbox Software have today announced that Borderlands 2, the sequel to the multi-million unit selling breakout hit, Borderlands, is now available for pre-order on Steam.

Borderlands 2 will feature all-new characters; skills; imaginative, diverse new environments with unique missions and enemies and more exciting and fun weapons, equipment and loot than ever before. In Borderlands 2 gamers play as one of four new vault hunters facing off against a massive new world of creatures, psychos and the evil mastermind, Handsome Jack. Borderlands 2 will allow friends to play together locally via split-screen, as well as online with drop-in-drop-out capabilities.

Those who pre-purchase Borderlands 2 on Steam now will get an upgrade to the Premier Club Edition that includes a package of unique Gearbox Golden Guns to help you start your journey on Pandora, the ability to unlock a rare item in the mysterious Sanctuary Loot Chest, and a free download of the all-new Mechromancer character class as soon as she’s available.
