The following advertisement appears in it, apparently detailing a new iOS-exclusive entry in the series, starring the original cast of characters:

Sadly, there are no screenshots of actual gameplay, so whether this is a first-person shooter or not remains to be seen, but that features list sounds very promising anyway. There's one thing we wish we were doing when we're not playing Borderlands 2, and that's playing Borderlands 2. Perhaps this will help fill that daily void.
More as soon as it's more official, which should be pretty soon considering there's only a week or so left of October.
