Guns: lots and lots of guns. Millions of them, in fact. That’s the banner feature of Borderlands that’s going to embarrass all those other first-person shooters. Borderlands is a mix of open desert buggy-driving and fast-paced shooting that’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’s what Borderlands is attempting, in a fast-paced shooter.
