Borderlands 2 Special Editions Detailed

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.

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.
BF3's Limited Edition only gave you Back to Karkand for Free not any of the other DLC's if it did do that then so far I feel very cheated since it hasn't give me close quarters yet.

no you're right, it was just karkland, which was included in the premium pack as well.

I went in with some mates on the 4 pack deal. Was bought in the US so it was a bit cheaper than paying in Euro. Now it just sits there in my Steam list taunting me...
C'mon Sept 18th!!
