Borderlands 2 fans are in for a treat at this year’s gamescom after 2K Games and Gearbox Software today announced a ground-breaking project to celebrate the unique art style and direction of the game. Leading graffiti artists Sam Hope (UK) and Dave More (Germany) will collaborate to create a mural of the colourful world of Borderlands 2’s Pandora, featuring key characters, items and environments, which will be live-streamed online.
Taking the project one step further in true Borderlands style, individual artwork will reveal exclusive online content as sections of the mural are completed, transforming it into the largest interactive digital artwork ever created. A select number of lucky fans will also get the chance to take away a piece of Borderlands 2 history; the completed individual artworks will be given away via a free social auction, with bids being placed on Twitter.
Gamescom attendees can watch the mural taking shape on Friday 17th August from 9am CET outside the Koelnmesse Convention Centre, and the live-stream will be available for everyone worldwide at http://aworkofart.eu. (the site goes live on Monday 13th August.)
Borderlands 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed four-player cooperative shooter-looter that combined intense first-person mayhem with role-playing gameplay. Featuring all new characters; skills; imaginative, diverse new environments with unique missions and enemies; and more exciting and fun weapons, equipment and loot than ever before – Borderlands 2 will be available internationally on September 21st 2012, and in North America on September 18th 2012.
