Borderlands 2 sold more than 7 million units worldwide across all platforms since it released last September. The first-person shooter was highly regarded by both fans and critics for its blend of action, online multiplayer, RPG-style skill trees, unique environments, memorable characters, captivating missions and one-of-a-kind enemies and weapons.
Gaming Illustrated awarded Borderlands 2 the elusive Editor’s Choice Award in the review. The game was also named Gaming Illustrated’s First-Person Shooter of the Year in the 2012 Game of the Year Awards.
While the Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition represents a good value for the loads of content released for the game throughout the past year, fans might be disappointed as it usually signifies the developer is moving on from the game. Without focusing on future Borderlands 2 content, Gearbox could potentially turn to a sequel.
