2K Games has released the first trailer for their highly-anticipated shooter Borderlands 2. Taking place in a snowy landscape, the video shows off the new "Gunzerker" class.

Featuring a buff burly body akin to a Gears of War character, the Gunzerker is seen wielding a large Tommy-gun esque weapon while wreaking havoc upon his alien enemies. Like the first game, Borderlands 2 features a highly stylized cel-shaded aesthetic.

For those unfamiliar with the first game, Borderlands is a highly-beloved NVIDIA 3D Vision-supported first-person shooter that blends addictive RPG elements like loot drops and leveling up.

While little is known about the recently revealed title, the trailer confirms that Borderlands 2 is set to release sometime in 2012.
