Borderlands 2 Top Trumps Cards Exclusive to Independent UK Stores

View author's profile

In a classy move by publishers 2K, a set of Limited edition Borderlands 2 Top Trumps cards will be offered as pre-order incentives at selected independent UK retailers.

As an alternative to the numerous pre-order incentives offered via the big retail chains, indies will be exclusively dishing out the cards, which feature 30 of Borderlands 2’s craziest weapons. 

The “Guns Guns Guns Pack" is genuinely limited too. "Only 5000 packs of cards will be distributed across the country and will be available on a first-come-first served basis to those who pre-order Borderlands 2,” said Ben Lawrence, UK PR Manager at 2K Games.

“Once they're gone, they're gone so I'd encourage people to check with their local Indie store to see if they're stocking the cards. We want to turn everyone in Vault Hunters!"

Borderlands 2 hits on September 18th in North America and Sept 21st in Europe. Oh, and there's a funky "de-make"  browser game available to play for free now too. Give it a bash here.

Glad to see the smaller shops are getting bonuses too.

Also, I remember playing Top Trumps when I was a kid, so this is a nice throwback :P

@1 I'd assume any store that isn't Game, Gamestation, HMV etc

Heh. Cool enough. Not going to buy and import from overseas, but still neat enough.

I hate all these preorder bonuses.
I love the game, and I'd love to have everything to do with it, but I can't afford to buy the damn thing three separate times to get all the damn preorder bonuses. There should be ONE that every store gets, anything else should be extra on top of that.
I'd happily pay a little more for these, but having already made a pre-order at amazon I can't afford to preorder again just to get the cards.
This is a ridiculously cool idea, and if you can't bring yourself to stick to one preorder bonus then for the love of god announce them all at the same time so we can make an informed decision.

Would like to know what stores!

@11 agreed, I'd love to get my hands on these guns, but I don't live in the UK and they are probably gonna sell for a shit load on eBay because there are only 5000 of them.

Do you actually get to play with those or is it just to look at it once and file away for dust to collect? Just curious LOL

Cool for those who live in the UK. Sometimes they get cool stuff, sometimes the US gets cool stuff. @ 11 completely agree. The amount of preorder exclusives is just sickening. I'm sick of having to choose certain retailers for an exclusive character, or an exclusive gun pack. Why can't they just make one big preorder bonus and distribute it at the store, (or website) of our choosing? Still, can't wait for this game. Why can't it be september 18th?

I'm guessing Top Trumps isn't too good in the spelling front, I noticed two typos in these pictures alone...
