Borderlands 2

Borderlands 2 is a science fiction–based first-person shooter with RPG elements and the sequel to 2009's Borderlands. At the start of the game, players select one of four new characters, each with a unique special skill and with proficiencies with certain weapons. From then on, players take on quests assigned through non-player characters or from bounty boards, each typically rewarding the player with experience points, money, and sometimes a reward item.

Returning gameplay features from the first game will include the unique, cartoon-esque cel-shading graphic style, 3-branch skill trees, class-mods, and four-player online cooperative modes. New features include a more expansive and customizable weapons system, reworked four-seat drift-able vehicles and vehicle physics elements, and dynamic quest systems.

Solutions & Issues
Baseline (Widescreen) Solution & Issues

Support is native. Resolution can be set from the config launcher or changed in-game at any time.
The game also supports HUD scaling, horizontal and vertical HUD bounds and a FOV range of 70-110.

Ultra/Super-Wide (21:9/32:9) Specific Solution & Issues

HUD is based on 16:9. It can be widened, but not to the point of being completely 21:9

Eyefinity / Surround Specific Solution & Issues

It appears there may be some minor issues with multi-monitor support. Also, if you look at the gameplay screenshots you'll notice that the snow fog completely disappeared in Surround.

(Negligible) Aspect ratio affects the world refraction on scope lenses.

4k UHD Specific Solution & Issues

4K Res 3840x2160 appeared natively into the menu, the ingame menu's get perfectly upscaled to the leading Resolution and look sharp compared to little hud pictures as for example the icon in front of the grenade ammo bar. these are a little bit pixelated but not distracting for the gameplay.
I'd say it looks great on 4K and its perfectly native supporting the resolution.
