Borderlands 2 Short Film Drops Later This Week

Borderlands 2 Short Film Drops Later This Week

Borderlands 2 short film teaser 1

Borderlands 2 will be getting another animated short film very soon - though from the screenshot teasers, we have no idea what it's about.

The folks at Gearbox Software make games, but they also seem to really enjoy making animated short films. The developer teased via Twitter that another homebrewed video will be hitting the web sometime this week. Gearbox's last short film, titled Krieg: A Meat Bicycle Built for Two, heralded the launch of Borderlands 2's sixth playable character. At this point in time the developer has released all its planned DLC, so this new video could just be for fun, or it could mark the announcement of something else entirely.

The two screens of the video that have been teased so far show a few familiar faces. Well, okay, there aren't exactly any faces visible, but familiar outfits. The first image appears to be Brick and Tiny Tina in captivity, and the second looks like Maya confronting some bad guys. Then again, bags cover Brick's and Tina's faces, and Maya has her back turned, so I wouldn't rule out the possibility that some villain accidentally captured their stunt doubles.

Gearbox announced a partnership with the Academy of Art earlier this year, which will culminate in a student-produced short film set in the Borderlands world. However, Gearbox's Adam Fletcher has mentioned that this video is unrelated to that initiative, and was produced in-house. Keep your eyes peeled for the video's release in the next few days.

The Krieg short film was bloody amazing. Very close to TF2 "Meet the..." level of awesome. So I am definitely looking forward to this.

My first guess was that it was an announcement trailer for the DLC hinted at the end of Dragon's Keep -


- but that second image is definitely from Dragon's Assault. Maybe it's the new raid boss DLCs?

More DLC was announced for Borderlands 2 shortly after Dragon Keep released.

One of them is going to raise the level cap to 72 and add something called the Digistruct Peak Challenge.

And theres plans for more raid boss/mission packs, the first of which is to revolve around T.K. Baha in some way.

Literally in the last cutscene.

It's implied from this that we'll get a DLC that let's us do just that. Especially in that it can be considered a direct sequel to the main story.

Thaty reminds me, I have to download that DLC at some point.
