Borderlands 2 introduces Gearbox Software 'Shift'

Quote:
Gearbox Software Shift is described as an online account service, where players can "redeem Shift Codes to unlock exclusive content for Borderlands 2." The manual goes one further by hinting at a Golden Loot Chest in the game whose contents are "only available through something called a 'Shift Code.'"

Elsewhere, the codes in question are referred to as "Gearbox Software Shift Codes," rather than specifically for Borderlands 2, implying that other Gearbox titles may become part of this infrastructure. So far, no related web site exists for sign-ups, and other details about potential Shift features haven't yet been posted; while it may resemble third-party in-game reward services like Ubisoft's U-Play, it could also resemble the Gearbox Labs data accumulation service.

The only way Gearbox has officially acknowledged Shift thus far is in a forum posting by Gearbox Community Manager Chris Faylor:

"Attending a Gearbox event is just one example of the many ways we could possibly distribute such codes. I can't imagine us limiting distribution to physical proximity, especially with such a passionate community located all throughout the world."


Update: A 2K Games representative has clarified that Gearbox Shift is "simillar to Rockstar's Social Club," allowing players to redeem in-game digital material and interact with each other. "We're not talking about any future games this feature will be available for," the rep continued, "but it likely will be integrated into others."
The site for this should be up.

Not much you can do on it right now. You can't even link your XBL account yet.

You can log in using you 360, which links your Xbox account. Not sure where to get the Shift code, however.

Ah, I was going to post about this, only because some have been reporting that signing up to this will net you another Golden Key to use for your profile.

Looks like you can't link your account as of yet. But more free keys is more free keys, so I'll give it a whirl.

You don't need the shift code. Once you set up an account through the extras option of the main menu you are all set. When you start the game you will get a notice saying you have two golden keys to use. I think the shift code is referring to codes gearbox has/will give out.

i registered on the site, and then linked my 360 account through the Extras menu in the game. Only got the 1 golden key with the deluxe edition that I ordered.
No extra key for registering or linking the account.

I still can't sign up at the site. The damn agreement checkbox is broken and I can't check it.

I... umm... HAVE? It doesn't fucking work dude. It doesn't ungrey at all. I've tried everything and the damn thing won't let me register. Can't accept the pointless agreement LOOL.

Is it because I am using Firefox? If so that is retarded. I don't like using IE and I don't have Chrome because I frankly haven't heard anything good about it and it sounds overrated.

It might be....I use Chrome and it worked. I hate IE as well, but find for a couple sites I have to use it for things to display properly.
Maybe open it in IE just to accept the agreement and register and then go back and see if FF works with no issues.

Yes I think it is because you're using Firefox.

I have issues with some pages too, I'm a Firefox user. I just use a addon called IE +, which let's you pick an option when you right click on a page, to Render that tab in IE format, still within your Firefox browser.

Yeah, I don't much like IE myself, but from time to time, you gotta ask the Devil for help, lol!

Hmm, I tried in IE & Firefox and both claim I can't link to my account for Xbox Live from this website at this time. I could link my Steam account & my Sony account (which I don't have either), but not the Xbox one.

*shrug*

You shouldn't need to link your account. After you set up your account go to the extras part of the main menu, in there go to shift and log in. After you do all this you should get another golden key. As for the people that can't set the account up I'm not sure what to tell you, I did it using my iPhone.

You have to login through the Extras menu in the game to link your account. Once you login through the menu and then go back to the website, it will show as linked.

Well, I've tried in Firefox, IE, AND my iPad, all no go. The website is janky, probably bogged down because everyone and their momma is trying to use it. I'm constantly getting "Timed out at Authentication" errors

I was just able to create an account. The website is a little slow, but I was able to make an account with no real issues.

Logging in has been a problem though. I keep getting this screen:

Thanks for the tip about this site. I created an account and then linked it through the in-game menu. Now I have 3 golden 3 keys. 1 from this, 1 from the Premier Club, and I assume 1 from beating Borderlands 1? I honestly don't know if that is actually what the 3rd one is from or not.

I got my second one for registering on the site once I started the game. It showed 1 key when I started, then once I started the game and got to Sanctuary it showed 2.

I got mine too...

The "key" is after you register online go back to the extras menu and select shift again. That's when you get the key.
