Sir Hammerlock Lifts the Veil On Borderlands 2

Everything you ever wanted to know about the world of Pandora is now at your fingertips.

Much has changed on Pandora. Handsome Jack is calling the shots these days, and his hand is not particularly light. He's taken credit for finding the Vault and even placed an orbital base above the surface of the planet, from which he can deliver supplies and troops to wherever he needs them. He's a bad man, and he's got to go.

Fortunately, a lot remains the same, too. In most relevant ways, "relevant" being defined as how and when you kill stuff, Borderlands 2 is pretty much the same as the original Borderlands: Four unique playable characters, hordes of sketchy dudes and 87 bazillion guns to point at them. Not exactly revolutionary, but it's a pretty solid formula, so why mess with it?

What I particularly like about this video is that it's silly and amusing, but also quite informative. If you haven't been paying attention and don't know anything about Borderlands 2, this is a great way to get caught up.

Borderlands 2, from Gearbox, comes out on September 18 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
