written by JMatula on November 8, 2012 in Mac Gaming News

Get ready to return to Pandora Mac gamers! Aspyr Media, in partnership with 2K Games and Gearbox Software, announced today that Borderlands 2 will be released on the Mac November 20. Borderlands 2 is the sequel to Borderlands, the critically acclaimed four-player coop shooter-looter that combined intense first-person mayhem with role-playing gameplay. 

Borderlands 2 lives up to the mantra “bigger, better and more badass,”  featuring all-new characters and skills, as well as imaginative, diverse new environments with unique missions and enemies. There’s even more exciting and fun weapons, equipment and loot than ever before. All of these features come together in a story that returns players to the world of Pandora to take down the notorious Handsome Jack and his corrupt Hyperion Corporation as a solo campaign or with up to four cooperative players.

“Aspyr prides itself on bringing the best in gaming to the Mac audience,” said Ted Staloch, Vice President of Aspyr Media. “Borderlands 2 is definitely among the best.  Most sequels have a hard time living up to the first, but Borderlands 2 manages to improve on every cool aspect of Borderlands, and still finds a way to wrap the player up in a new story with a new experience.”

Borderlands 2 will allow friends to play together online with drop-in-drop-out capabilities. Seamless cooperative gameplay and action makes Borderlands 2 extremely accessible for gamers and their friends to play alone or together. 

The game  will retail for $59.99 and be available on Steam on November 20. The Mac App Store version will arrive later this year. For those that love tangibles, a physical boxed format for the game will also be available later this holiday season. Visit the Borderlands 2 page at GameAgent.com to pre-order and use Mac Match to see if your Mac is supported!
