The first Borderlands wasn't exactly family-friendly, and the original was "toned down" in certain countries to reduce the gore factor. So it's definitely good news that Borderlands 2 will be going out uncut all around the world. Hopefully Zed will be making a return to hack some more limbs off.

"Do you live in Germany?" Gearbox asks in an official post. "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.)"

There'll also be a "gore toggle" to turn off all blood and other violent effects for the sensitive among us (although what you're doing playing Borderlands in the first place is beyond us).

Borderlands launches Sept. 18 in the US and Sept. 21 internationally. Are you looking forward to blowing countless skags into scrumptious little morsels? Relieved now that you know you'll definitely be able to? Tell us in the comments or on Twitter.
