    Borderlands 2 is a big fall release for both 2K Games and Gearbox, timed to hit just when you might be getting sick of grabbing loot from a certain other game. And as a big fall release, it's getting a few special editions, because of course it is. Today 2K and Gearbox detailed the two special editions of the game and the goodies stashed within. The "Deluxe Vault Hunter's Collector's Edition" ($99.99) includes a Marcus bobblehead, a hardbound art book, sticker set, map of Pandora, digital comic download code, and bonus in-game DLC. If you want to go bigger, the "Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition ($149.99) includes those items, plus a scaled replica of a red loot chest, steel book case, creatures ID chart, lithograph postcard set, field notes from Sir Hammerlock, a cloth map of Pandora, and a numbered certificate of authenticity.

    As previously reported on Shacknews, pre-orders of either special edition will get access to the "Borderlands 2 Premiere Club," which nets you downloads of the Gearbox Gun Pack for extra weapons, a Golden Key to open a chest with a rare item in the Golden Sanctuary, the Vault Hunter's Relic to boost abilities, and the already announced Mechromancer class. Pre-ordering the standard edition will get you the Mechromancer as well, and 2K again reiterated that it will be post-launch content.

    If you wear a foam helmet and eat apple sauce because it has no bones in it......then sure its a great game.

    my helmet does have foam in it... and I don't think I would keep eating applesauce if it did have bones in it. that would be gross.

    Well the ending to the original Borderlands did suck. Very anti climactic. But the DLCs provided a lot of good fun. Zombie one especially.

    I wonder if they'll announce a DDE version. Honestly, while those two are really tempting me...I've got a big TOR CE box collecting dust right now because I really have no place to put it. I'd collapse it to keep it nice but I don't think it is designed to collapse.

    Regardless Borderlands being a deliberate rip off of another game or not, IMO it is a fun game.

    Instead of including all this crap I don't care about, I would rather they do something like BF3's Limited Edition where you'll get access to all DLCs without having to pay any more than what you paid when you originally bought it. I am leaning against buying Borderlands 2 at launch because I know they're going to release DLC for it and I have no intention to pay $20+ per DLC.

    Doubtful, but that doesn't matter. The point is, I don't like spending more on a game than the initial investment.

    some tech site reported last week it will be 1200 MS ($15) and give you access to 4 pieces of solo/co-op DLC.

    Gearbox hasn't said anything but even the skeptics on the Gearbox forums think there will be a season pass of some sort.
