Borderlands 2 is set to make a killing at retail next week, but that shouldn't stop you from heading over to Gearbox Software's newly retweaked website and checking out the skill trees.  Best do it sooner rather than later, because these things are HUGE.

All the skill trees for each character are up now at this website and you can see the various options you have available for increasing your skills and becoming a better gunman/ninja/killer.  The choices don't exactly carry over into the final game, but they give you a great idea of what lies ahead so you can prep accordingly when you play through it.

Also, on a side note, we're headed up to Gearbox this weekend to take part in this weekend shenanigans, so be sure to check back for a full report before the game drops next week.

Borderlands 2 hits stores September 18th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.  Um, you pre-ordered…right?
