You might want to hang onto those old Borderlands save files, as Gearbox Software now confirms that they'll unlock additional customization features in Borderlands 2, which hits stores on September 18, 2012. The news comes by way of a Facebook photo post touting "Vault Veteran Rewards," an image showing the sequel's four new playable characters decked out in the unlockable duds.
Players will be able to swap out the heads and skins on their characters in Borderlands 2, a purely cosmetic customization feature that is new to the series with this sequel. It's not clear if the Mechromancer, the unlockable fifth class that players will receive as a pre-order bonus (or can purchase as DLC), will also benefit from the save file bonus, since only the four main characters are pictured in the poster. We're checking on this one.
