Borderlands 2 Will Ship Uncut Worldwide
Chris Faylor, Community Manager at Gearbox Software, just announced some awesome news for fans eagerly awaiting Borderlands 2. He has confirmed that the game will ship completely ‘uncut’, not just in the US, but worldwide. The previous title varied from region to region but thanks to a newly added “Gore Toggle” feature, players can adjust the violence as they see fit. Already positioning itself it in the number three all time spot in the company’s sales (only behind GTA: San Andreas and GTA: IV), making this option available just shows the level of commitment to their fans. He writes:
Some fans will remember that the first Borderlands game was a bit toned down in certain territories compared to the rest of the world. No longer! Do you live in Germany? Australia? Bandits will be just as likely to explode into bloody chunks of awesomeness as they will be in Canada or England (which is to say: very likely.)
Or, maybe you’re the type who abhors violence. You’re in luck – we’ve implemented a Gore Toggle option. With a single button press, you can turn Borderlands a less violent experience!
Borderlands 2 hits shelves on September 18th (September 21st internationally) for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC.
