At its panel at PAX Prime today, Gearbox Software revealed that a patch will be hitting the PC version of Borderlands on September 9. The patch will not only add support for Steamworks (which will bring cloud saving to the two-year-old shooter), but will help the developer test tech it plans to include in future titles like Borderlands 2.

According to Gearbox president Randy Pitchford, the technology will send player data back to the developer -- details like what guns are being used or what areas aren't seeing any foot traffic. The reason for wanting these kinds of details, Pitchford explained, is simple: "This will allow us to make better games."

Speaking of "better" games, the Borderlands 2 demo Gearbox brought to PAX (the same one we saw and previewed at gamescom) was spectacular. It's quite clearly a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" sequel that sticks closely to the original formula. But Gearbox isn't afraid to admit what was broken, and has made a number of exciting and significant changes. For more, check out our preview, Tara's recent interview with art director Jeramy Cooke, and Hollie's right grilling of Anthony Burch.
