Yesterday, rumors started hitting the ‘net, originating from Eurogamer, that Borderlands 2 was a lock and an official announcement of the title was forthcoming. A day later we have that official announcement via Game Informer’s September cover reveal.

The September issue of Game Informer will feature a 12-page cover story on Borderlands 2, highlighting everything the Gearbox-developed sequel will add to enhance an already solid franchise. You can expect more weapons (obviously), new environments, smarter and more powerful enemies and an improved mission system that helps deliver a better narrative. But that’s not all, apparently. The September issue of Game Informer has more surprises up its sleeve about Borderlands 2, so keep an eye out for it.

Here’s the official cover to Game Informer’s September issue, shining the spotlight on Borderlands 2. Sexy.
