Borderlands 2 came out last week on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 and, while it’s pretty much a great game, quite a few issues have begun plaguing gamers across all three platforms. These include problems with the golden keys they got for pre-ordering, the tokens they received for completing challenges and, on the PC, glitches due to the storage of save game files on the Steam Cloud.
has been eagerly awaited by millions of gamers from all around the world and, as we pointed out in our review
yesterday, it delivers an impressive experience that impresses both visually and in terms of gameplay, as developer Gearbox Software made some crucial changes in order to promote variety.
Sadly, it seems that quite a few issues have begun to plague Borderlands 2 players no matter the platform.
First and foremost are problems with the Golden Keys
that were handed to those who pre-ordered the game. These items can be used one single time to open a golden chest in the city of Sanctuary. Some players claim that their keys suddenly vanished from their inventory while others demand new ones after they opened the chest without knowing that they couldn’t re-use the Golden Key.
While this issue isn’t so severe, other problems relate to the tokens offered for completing in-game challenges. According to some players, they have found their token count completely depleted despite the fact that their challenges appear to be finished.
Others found that the upgrades purchased with the tokens have been erased, meaning they lost their tokens and their newly acquired bonuses.
Last but not least, PC owners of Borderlands 2 are also complaining of Steam’s shoddy Cloud storage for save games, as they have often found that their progress wasn’t synched online, meaning that, when they played on another computer, they weren’t able to pick up where they had left off.
According to Gearbox, via CVG
, its team is looking into all these problems and will try to solve them as fast as possible.
