Borderlands 2 fans were in for a treat at this year’s gamescom after 2K Games announced a ground-breaking project to celebrate the unique art style and direction of the game.
Leading graffiti artists Sam (UK) and Dave (Germany) collaborated to create a 60ft (sq) mural of the colourful world of Borderlands 2, featuring key characters, items and environments, which will be live-streamed online.
Taking the project one step further in true Borderlands style, individual artwork reveal exclusive online content as sections of the mural were completed, transforming it into one of the largest interactive digital artworks ever created.
A select number of lucky fans will also get the chance to take away a piece of Borderlands 2 history; from the 25th August, the completed individual artworks will be given away for free via a Sweepstakes on Twitter.
Gamescom attendees watched the mural taking shape on Friday 17th August from 9am CET outside the Koelnmesse Convention Centre, and the live-stream is available for everyone worldwide at www.aworkofart.eu.
