Borderlands

Guns for hire, for sale, and for rent

Dec 19, 2007

Guns: lots and lots of guns. Millions of them, in fact. That%26rsquo;s the banner feature of Borderlands that%26rsquo;s going to embarrass all those other first-person shooters. Borderlands is a mix of open desert buggy-driving and fast-paced shooting that%26rsquo;s coming in 2008. You and three friends bomb around a ruined landscape in souped-up dune buggies, chased by angry mercenaries while protecting threatened colonies from cracked-rhino-hide aliens - the Kraytt. You do so with this: an epic selection of randomly generated weaponry.

Remember how Diablo dropped an almost constant stream of items into your world, for you to coo over, or sell? That%26rsquo;s what Borderlands is attempting, in a fast-paced shooter.
