Speaking to Joystiq behind closed doors, Gearbox's Steve Gibson revealed that those playing Borderlands 2's couch co-op mode will be able to take the action online with two other players.

There is one stipulation however, according to Gibson. Split-screen players will not be able to join up with another duo of split-screen players as the game requires a host, but we're guessing the likelihood of this occurence is slim.

Gibson also ackownledged that Gearbox had tweaked the game's UI when in co-op mode, eradicating concerns that popped up in the original game. Nice.
