2K announced that the public debuts of Borderlands 2, The Darkness 2, and XCOM will all be happening this year at PAX.
Borderlands 2 is the ultimate four-player Role-Playing Shooter loot fest. Combining invention and evolution, Borderlands 2 features all new characters, skills, environments, enemies, weapons and equipment, which come together in an ambitiously crafted story. Players will reveal secrets, and escalate mysteries of the Borderlands universe as they adventure across the unexplored new areas of Pandora. Check out screenshots from the game here.
The Darkness II brings a unique new combat mechanic through Quad-Wielding, which will allow players to slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with two Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons. The game is layered with thematic elements of dark versus light, steeped in deep and twisted storytelling, and maintains the stylistic violence visualized through a graphic noir technique, true to its comic book origins. The game will be available on February 7, 2012 in North America and February 10, 2012 internationally for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC.
XCOM pits Special Agent William Carter and his team against the threat of human extinction from an insidious otherworldly force. But every enemy is an opportunity – players will strike surgically against the alien menace, capture their technology, and by the science of desperation – turn the invaders’ weapons against them. Armed with these lethal new tools of war, players will command their squad on XCOM’s front lines: Main Street, USA. The game will be available on March 6, 2012 in North America and March 9, 2012 internationally for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
