Gearbox's "Rage-like" co-op shooter revealed

The latest issue of Game Informer, the magazine that doesn't bother printing unless it has a world exclusive on the cover, has revealed the latest shooter from Gearbox Software, Borderlands.

The game's described as a "sci-fi RPG/shooter" and has more than a passing resemblance to id Software's Rage. Game Informer says it's "Diablo meets Mad Max" and features full-on four-player co-op, which seems to be all the rage at the moment.

Other than that, details are scarce at the moment. We're most interested though by the supposed "RPG" elements of the game. Does that mean you'll be able to customize your vehicle? A bit like Rage? id Software's going to be pissed.

Borderlands is in development for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. We expect we'll be seeing more of it at Leipzig next week.
