[ Game -> Images ] - More info on Company: Gearbox Software | More info on Game: Borderlands

A preview of GameInformer's september cover reveals its main feature — Borderlands, Gearbox Software's new project, a sci-fi FPS/RPG four-person coop being developed for the PC, xbox360 and ps3. A game that 2K, the publisher for Borderlands, president Christoph Hartmann claims will be "an important evolutionary leap in game design and technology".

From Gameindustry.biz:

"Borderlands represents an important evolutionary leap in game design and technology," said 2K president Christoph Hartmann. "By utilizing revolutionary new technology to create thousands of unique, randomly generated missions, weapons and situations, Borderlands will raise the bar for next gen action games."

From Shacknews:

It appears a road warrior influence is in the air; just days after id Software announced Rage, Brothers in Arms developer Gearbox Software has revealed Borderlands, which a Game Informer cover story describes as "Diablo meets Mad Max."

/.../

A science fiction RPG/FPS hybrid, with support for up to four cooperative players online. Vehicles are likely to be significantly involved.

Gameinformer cover:

Gameinformer, September 2007

Gearbox is aiming at a 2008 holiday season release for this title.

Looks like id might not be alone in the post-apoc racing ganre.

actually sounds more like post apoc halo (will you actually be racing? looks more like they're just combat vehicles) with some sort of random quest/mission generator tacked on.

guys, we should start the POWAH ARMOR MANZ clan back up.

If Diablo would meet Mad Max, there'd be no Diablo.

Funny how it says, first person coorperative shooter, while everybody goes for da big shiny items. There aren`t any coorperative games, humans aren`t made to think coorparative, expect it involves some money or in gamelanguage, XP points.

anything that REQUIRES cooperation is likely to suck, but if cooperation is POSSIBLE, it can be the greatest thing in the world.

"Borderlands represents an important evolutionary leap in game design and technology,"

In other words, it has good graphics... for now.

"By utilizing revolutionary new technology to create thousands of unique, randomly generated missions, weapons and situations, Borderlands will raise the bar for next gen action games."

See that magic? It's easy to make something really old like a random mission generator sound new by saying "revolutionary." And random situations? Like the enemy might shoot you or he might try to pull your pants down?

I always stayed away from multiplayer because I can't stand death match games. When they do co-op half the time it's half assed and no good, or its deathmatch with teams. Co-op was my favorite way to play multi-player in the original Doom and Quake. I liked being able to play through the single player game with a team mate. I know they did it in Halo 2 but I don't own an x-box and I refuse to buy Vista so I haven't experienced it yet. I'm interested in seeing if they actually get it right. Rainbow Six would have been cool if all your team members could be real people. Maybe it'll be like that?
