Borderlands Gives SHiFT Keys
So the VGAs have come and gone, and many developers have been honored with awards for their games. Borderlands 2 developer Gearbox, earned in total 4 different awards at the VGAs, and as a company that started out relatively small, this is an amazing accomplishment.
Surprisingly, the biggest award Borderlands 2 took home from the VGAs was the award for the best shooter, and even with the hugely popular Halo 4 and Call of Duty Black Ops 2 being released this year as well, Borderlands 2 managed to grab the award, most likely due to its originality and overall unique combat scenarios.
On top of the best shooter award, Gearbox received best performance by a human male, best multiplayer, and best character of the year for their Borderlands title. The best human male performance was given to Handsome Jack, and the best character award was given to Claptrap.
Gearbox wanted to award the players and the fans for such a successful night at the VGAs, and has given out multiple SHiFT keys for players to use on the PS3, Xbox 360 or the PC.
Here is a list of the SHiFT codes given out from Gearbox's twitter:
