Fancy yourself a creative individual? Do you dream of creating the ultimate collector’s edition that puts statues of dragons or replica Batarangs to shame? Here comes your opportunity… well, at least you can slightly contribute.
Where can you go to let Gearbox know what you want in your Borderlands 2 Collector’s Edition? To their official forum, obviously. Gearbox is very much a fan-oriented studio and they are willing to do whatever they can to please their customers. Whether or not it’s committing to making a better Duke Nukem game, improving Borderlands 2 quest structure (to be more cohesive), or making an Aliens game that looks pretty spectacular.
Most collector’s editions, including Skyrim‘s, usually include some kind of statue. BioShock had a Big Daddy, Batman: Arkham Asylum included a Batarang, and even Fallout 3 offered-up a Pip Boy bobblehead. If enough people voted on it, would a Claptrap tiny robot be something you would want to see? They’re just so adorable, who could say no?
Again, this is your chance to decree unto Gearbox the contents you would like to see. If it’s within reason and enough people ask for it, your idea might be used…provided it’s stuff Gearbox can afford. Replica weapons might be out of the question, unfortunately.
With a game like Borderlands 2, where there are loads of guns, exclusive weaponry might be on the list of quite a few individuals. Artbooks, soundtracks, Xbox dashboard themes, avatar items, t-shirts, the list can go on and on. If you think your ideas would be something Gearbox would want to think about including, get over to their forum and let them know.
Borderlands 2 will be releasing in 2012 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
