May 20, 2012Written by Zak Islam

Gearbox Software has assured Borderlands fans that the game’s sequel will fix the dreaded voice chat, as well as framerate issues.

Speaking on the PlayStation Blog where he answered fans’ questions on Twitter, Borderlands 2 producer Matt Charles stressed that notable technical problems from the shooter’s predecessor will be addressed in the sequel.

The system pertaining to voice chat in the game “will be working for everyone when the game launches.” In addition, while it is “too early for me to give any final numbers,” players will notice that Borderland 2‘s framerate will “see an improvement” over the original.

Charles also delved into the upgraded user interfaces, as well as how players can automatically pick up ammo, in addition to currency dropped by opponents:

There’s a lot more useful data for gear comparison and also more descriptive text on the item cards as well. Having said that, the best way to know what a gun does is to use it.

Borderlands 2 is currently scheduled for a release on September 18th in North America and 21st in European regions.
