Reddit user lleti wanted to see what Borderlands 2 looked like in 4K, and was left with only one option: to run Borderlands 2 in 4K.
After the initial success, it was only appropriate to take Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep for a spin, too. You can check out those screens here. Thanks for sharing, lleti!

Top o’ the mornin’ to you!
In case you missed them last year, the Zaford clan has once again decided to take a break from binge drinking and Hodunk killing to hand out some skins for your favorite Vault Hunters. You can use the codes below to score special green skins for your characters, plus get a sweet Chulainn SMG sent straight to your backpack.
To get the goods, enter these SHiFT codes in Borderlands 2:
- PC / Mac Zaford Gear SHiFT Code: 5JWT3-3H5FB-SCBX5-TJ3JB-H5R6X
- Xbox 360 Zaford Gear SHiFT Code: K3C33-633S6-BKW56-56BBT-X9X9X
- PlayStation 3 Zaford Gear SHiFT Code: W3KTJ-H9H3H-FHR5B-9BCJB-36ZZ6
Each skin will be available in the Quick Change station, and your shiny new Chulainn SMG will appear in the backpack and be the same level of the first character you load after code redemption.
Redeem these while you can since they won’t be around forever. If you have any trouble, find help and assistance on http://support.gearboxsoftware.com.
Moxxi is awfully sorry she forgot you the other day, but wants to make it up to you by giving you a Loverpalooza present same as the others.
Enjoy Krieg's celebratory Loverpalooza skin "IT'S WRONG ALL WRONG" --- available in the Quick Change character customization station.

Happy Loverpalooza! Moxxi's in quite the romantic mood today and has decided to re-release last year's celebratory Loverpalooza skins and Heart Breaker shotgun. Hurry though -- these codes won't be active forever, and we know that you all look best in pink!
Enjoy "Real Men Wear Pink" for Axton, "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" for Zer0, "Pretty and Pink" for Maya, "Pink Eyes" for Salvador, "Gumming the Works" for Gaige -- each celebratory skin will be available in the Quick Change character customization station, along with a special version of Moxxi's Heart Breaker shotgun that will be the same level as (and appear in the backpack of) the first character you load after redeeming the code.
Miss Moxxi feels awful bad she forgot Krieg, but has now given him a pretty pink celebratory skin so he doesn't feel left out.

Hi! I'm Jeffrey “botman” Broome, one of the programmers that worked on Borderlands 2. I'm back “Inside the Box” again to tell you about how an upcoming Borderlands 2 update will (among other things) bring a colorblind mode option to all platforms. Let's talk a little a bit about what being colorblind is, what it isn't, why some people are colorblind and other people aren't and what can be done in video games to help compensate for colorblindness. Check it out and if you're not careful, you might learn something.
Up until several months ago, I, like probably many of you, didn't really know much at all about colorblindness. I knew a small percentage of people (mostly males) had it, but didn't know much more beyond that. First of all, the word “colorblind” is not an accurate description. A better description would be “color vision deficiency”. READ MORE...
