2K Updates Borderlands, No Gamespy Removal... yet.

2K and Gearbox have released a patch to Borderlands today that is aimed to just let you know how the Gamespy update plans are moving along. The update is only available for Steam users, but never fear, Gearbox is here!

The noted for the update are below, as seen on the 2K support site:

  • Removed SecuRom from the title and all DLC
  • Added a "Granting Tool" In the steam "Tools" section that turns a retail Borderlands disc into a Steam version of Borderlands. Need help with that? Here's our guide.
  • "News Ticker" added to the main menu to give you updates on the Multiplayer restoration updates.
  • Imported SecuRom DLC keys into Steam, so if you bought DLC outside of Steam, activate it within Steam and get your matching content.

Indeed, you read that right. All DRM has been removed from Borderlands and its DLC. You can also activate your retail Borderlands game disc on Steam using the Borderlands Granting Tool in the Tools section of Steam. Additionally, all SecuROM protected DLCs can be activated on Steam using the key provided to unlock the DRM on those products. Pretty awesome stuff!

Unfortunately, this update does not completely remove Gamespy and multiplayer on the game will be broken until they release a Gamespy removing, Steam integrating patch to the game sometime soon.
