2K Games and Top Trumps have come up with a novel way to support the UK’s Indie videogames stores, they’ve partnered to create a strictly limited-edition run of Borderlands 2 Top Trumps – the collectible card trading game.
Featuring 30 of Borderlands 2’s famously outlandish weapons, the Top Trumps ‘Guns Guns Guns’ pack will never be for sale at retail and will only ever be available when the game is pre-ordered as part of 2K’s current promotion.
‘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 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.’
‘The limited edition Borderlands 2 Top Trump cards are a fantastic way for the indies to give something extra to their customers and we’re delighted to offer this exclusive pre-order incentive to our customers’, said Paul Langley, Leisure Software Divisional Manager of GEM Distribution, who will be responsible for supplying the cards to the UK’s indie stores.
Borderlands 2 will be available on 21st September 2012, see our hands-on preview here.
