2K Games announced today that Borderlands 2 will have multiple editions for purchase once it releases this Septemeber. Fans of the series can now pre-order either the Deluxe Vault Hunter’s Collector’s Edition, or the Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition if the regular old game isn’t enough to satiate their fandom. These uber-editions will cost you though, so you better really be in love with this franchise if you want to own either of these two collections.
The Deluxe edition should range from $79.99 to $99.99, while the Ultimate edition should clock in around $149.99. Those prices are subject to change, but the U.S. dollar amount hasn’t been finalized yet, so I’m making an educated guess based on the British pounds equivalent. For all of the details relating to these super duper editions head on down past the break. You’ve been wondering when your local game store will offer these editions for pre-order…
