Update: Borderlands 2 rewarding Borderlands 1 players
Editor's Note: The reason why Gearbox wants Sony's help in developing a Vita version of Borderlands 2, is because they are too pre-occupied with other projects to develop the game themselves.
The rewards will be special (and exclusive) customization elements, which will be handed out as part of the Vault Veteran Rewards Program. The first reward will be a heads and skins pack that can be see below:
These elements will automatically be downloaded to all PS3s, Xbox 360s, and PCs that have a Borderlands 1 save file.
During recent interview with Siliconera, Borderlands 2 producer Matthew Charles revealed that Borderlands 2 will reward gamers for playing the original Borderlands. The way it works is, if Borderlands 2 detects a save file from Borderlands 1 on your hard drive or memory unit, you will unlock the additional item(s). Although he didn't state what exactly it will be, he did call it "a small token of gratitude". Most likely it will be a skin or something small like that.
Matthew Charles also went on to talk about the villain: Handsome Jack. In addition he talked about the vault hunters (both old and new) and how Pandora as changed over the time in between both games. The full interview is in the link below.
In other Borderlands news, Gearbox Software would like to see Borderlands 2 on the PS Vita and is even willing to ask Sony for help. More information can be found at joystiq.com.
What do you think the bonus will be? Does this make you more excited to play Borderlands 2? Does it make you want to try Borderlands 1 if you never played it? Would any of you be interested in a Vita version?
Borderlands 2 will be released September 18 in the US, and September 21 in Europe.
