Phew! Now, in order to celebrate the launch of the Game of the Year Edition, we wanted to do something special. Starting next Friday, October 11th, Gearbox Software and 2K will be hosting the Borderlands 2 $100,000 Loot Hunt.
In partnership with the folks here at PlayStation, Turtle Beach, NVIDIA, and BradyGames, 2K and Gearbox will be giving away tons of weekly prizes - including a grand prize of $50,000 in cold hard cash.
We'll also have four weekly cash prizes (worth a combined $50,000), along with incredible loot like PlayStation Vitas, and copies of Borderlands 2 Vita when it's released. Check out the official Web site
for a full list of prizes.
And of course, in addition to all that, you'll also be able to get unique and legendary drops just by completing in-game objectives! And don't be surprised if during the course of all this some of the bajillion weapons on Pandora suddenly become even more powerful.
For those of you without internet access or the ability to play Borderlands 2, U.S. residents can enter the sweepstakes by mailing a postcard to the following address:
Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt Sweepstakes
10 Hamilton Landing, Novato, CA 94949.
While the Loot Hunt itself doesn't kick off until October 11th, you can sign up now and check out the full details and rules by heading over to the sweepstakes Web site
Oh, and for those of you that have been asking for more Borderlands 2 downloadable content, you won't have to wait much longer! The first of the new Headhunter Pack add-ons for Borderlands 2, T.K. Baha's Bloody Harvest, arrives later this month - look for more details soon!
