Borderlands 2 special editions revealed, includes epic $150 loot chest

With the release of Borderlands 2 fast approaching, 2K Games dropped us a line to show off their newly-announced special edition packages for Borderlands 2. Most people will opt for the vanilla box-disc-manual version of Borderlands 2, but fans of stuff are going to flip out on the $150 mega package.

In addition to the regular version of Borderlands (game only), fans will also have access to the Deluxe Vault Hunter's Collector's Edition which features: Borderlands 2, a Marcus Kincaid bobblehead (he's the weapons dealer in the first game), a Borderlands 2 hardcover art book, sticker set, a map of Pandora, digital comic download, and a voucher for a DLC pack.

That's just the middle class version. The high-society version of Borderlands 2 costs $149.99 and has been dubbed the Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition. This behemoth comes with all of the items listed above, plus a replica of Borderlands' in-game loot chests, steel game case, a "Creatures of Pandora" ID chart, postcard set, "field notes from Sir Hammerlock; a cloth map of Pandora, and a numbered certificate of authenticity (ooo, fancy!).

But they're not done yet! In addition to this mega-load of loot, there are also pre-order bonuses. Pre-ordering any version of Borderlands 2 includes access to Borderlands 2 Premiere Club which includes a DLC pack of weapons, a Golden Key (used to unlock special items), the Vault Hunter's relic, and an all-new character class called the Mechromancer.

Borderlands 2 is due on store shelves on September 18 on 360, PS3, and PC. It will probably be awesome.

    I am paying 150 dollars for this game and I don't give even the tiniest shit.

    My thoughts exactly

    I cannot see myself not buying the deluxe. Just imagining opening up a real loot chest with all that swag inside seems euphoric.

    Yep, I was going to get it anyway, but all those goodies make the ULCE a 'must have!' for me! BTW: You might want to mention Gamesradar, but the Mechromancer isn't pre-order exclusive. Dunno about the other content, but people who pre-order it only don't have to pay for the extra class when it comes out. Just thought you might want to put a disclaimer there.

    Thanks for the heads up, I was thinking how much of a shame it wwould be if that was the case.

    what exactly did they say in this story at all to make us think that it was exclusive? it just mentions its one free aspect to pre ordering. I honestly think it would be a little silly if they need to start explaining access to dlc and explain the concept of online passes each and everytime they show up. I think people are smarter than you are giving them credit where most know if it isnt said to be exclusive (as this article never says) then we don't expect it to be. hell even when they do use the term exclusive in games it could mean time exclusive.

    Please take all of my money.
