Borderlands 2 PC to use Steamworks
All versions of the Gearbox shooter-RPG must be registered with Steam.
PC version of upcoming highly anticipated role-playing shooter Borderlands 2 will make use of Valve’s Steamworks suite; thus, all PC versions of the game must be registered with Steam.
Having Steamworks applied as a necessity to the Gearbox shooter does not mean it will act as a strict DRM, but will also add a host of features, including access to Steam Achievements, multiplayer matchmaking, Steam Cloud storage, auto-updating, DLC and more.
Players familiar with the first outing in the loot ‘em up franchise should be pleased, as this could mean 2K is ditching Gamespy support in Borderlands 2 which would make accessing a multiplayer session a much easier affair.
2K Games has recently slapped a solid September 21 outing to the sequel to 2009’s smashing hit and dropped an explosive trailer in the process. The game is also coming out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
