No cuts necessary for Borderlands 2

Over-the-top role-playing shooter Borderlands 2 has escaped the scalpel of censorship unscathed.

Despite its cartoony but brutal abundance of what developer Gearbox Software calls "bloody chunks of awesomeness", the game will be released in all territories with no cuts made.

That includes stricter markets such as Australia and Germany, where the 2009 original was modified slightly to reduce the amount of cel-shaded blood on screen.

"We’re happy to announce that Borderlands 2 will be uncut all over the world," Gearbox posted on its official blog.

"Some fans will remember that the first Borderlands game was a bit toned down in certain territories compared to the rest of the world. No longer!

"Do you live in Germany? Australia? Bandits will be just as likely to explode into bloody chunks of awesomeness as they will be in Canada or England (which is to say: very likely)."

That said, Gearbox has now added a new Gore Toggle option, allowing gamers to tone down the cartoony violence if they so choose.

Borderlands will be released for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on September 21st.
