You've probably heard about this already, but if you're trying to avoid any and all Borderlands 2 spoilers, look at another post. There are lots of other posts to look at, but this is the only one that shows you the game's brilliant Minecraft homage. After the intrepid explorers at G4 (opens in new tab) posted directions to the area, Game Front (opens in new tab) followed up with a video of what's inside: blocks to hack into pixel dust, a Creeper to kill, and a previously-teased Minecraft-themed character skin.

The hidden area is located in the Caustic Caverns, which are found "later in Borderlands 2." Follow the train tracks, turn right at the big door, and hop up the cliffside until you reach the Minecraft cavern. If you just want to see the easter egg, skip to 1:18 in the video (opens in new tab) .

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
