Borderlands 2 launching in September

Face-shooting fans, prepare to return to Pandora on September 18, when Borderlands 2 will arrive on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Developer Gearbox has also unveiled the in-game goodies you can snag by pre-ordering the shooter-RPG sequel, and blasted out a new trailer.

Pre-ordering from Amazon or GameStop nets you "membership" to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, which comes with a selection of in-game goodies. You'll get "unique" Gearbox-styled golden guns, a Relic to "boost your gear-hunting fortune," and a key to "unlock a rare item in the mysterious Sanctuary Loot Chest."

One might speculate that, like the Duke Nukem Forever First Access Club, joining this Club may get you other perks down the line too. Unless Gearbox simply has an unhealthy club fixation.
