Borderlands 2 to allow local co-op online

Playstation 3 Xbox 360 PC News Action FPS 2K

Borderlands 1 was a game that took co-op gameplay and the first person shooter, something which has recently become something of a commodity more than a requirement, and made it its own. There was just one problem with the online, and that was that you couldn’t bring your friend right next to you online with you.

That will all change in Borderlands 2, as Gearbox’s Steve Gibson told Joystiq during their Gamescom reveal of the title. The game will now support two-player split-screen online. There is one drawback however, two split screen pairs can not play together as one team has to host the game, and “a split-screen guy uses a lot of CPU, so he can not be the host.” It seems that Borderlands 2 is quickly becoming a must have title for co-op lovers far before its actual release date.

    The first borderlands was a must have for co-op lovers, in my opinion. It’s one of the ONLY games that We own 2 copies of so the husfriend and I could play together over XBL. I usually don’t care for co-op type games because I’m not very skilled with shooters and things, but the leveling system in borderlands actually made me feel like I was adding to the experience.
    We had a regular group of 4, and we’d all play together.

    Man, I think I’m going to go pop borderlands in now. I’ve been reading so much about 2 lately it’s making me want to play again!
