Borderlands is a FPS RPG that underwent a big art style change from a normal realistic wasteland game to the cell shaded game we have today. The story is the journey to find a vault hidden on the planet Pandora. A planet overflowing with skags and raiders just asking to be killed. Borderlands' big selling points being the 4 player co-op which has local 2 player splitscreen and online co-op. You are allowed multiple versions of the same character so you aren't forced to playa character you don't like in co-op. Along with the advertised "87 gazillion guns" the random weapon generator can create.

Borderlands releases Tuesday the 20th for 360 and PS3 with the PC release following after on the 26th. Borderlands is available for purchase off of Steam and the multiplayer portion of the game will use Gamespy. The in store PC copies will initially contain secureROM DRM in the form of a disc check but Gearbox has said this will likely be removed from in store copies with another wave of games sometime after release.


In the game you have four characters/classes to choose from those being:



Roland the Soldier.


Roland is the group's all in one support class and he can still dish out damage with upgraded shotgun and combat rifle skills. Roland's main skill is Scorpio turret which deploys and sentry gun with a shield. His skilltree revolves around upgrading the sentries abilities such as rate of fire, ammo, along with skills to heal and supply ammo to himself and his team.



Lilith the Siren.


She's the group's AoE and elemental based attacker. Lilith's main skill is call phasewalking which makes her invisible and allows for faster movement it also causes a shockwave when entering and leaving phasewalking. Most of her skilltree advances around stunning, elemental bonuses to weapons, and melee damage.



Mordecai the Hunter


Mordecai is the group's long range and pistol expert. His main skill is the bloodwing with which he sends out his pet bird to attack enemies for a good chunk of damage. The bloodwing can be upgraded from the skilltree to do more damage and have added effect such as health stealing and stunning. The rest of his skilltree revolves around boosting his skill with sniper rifles and pistols and boosting the chance of finding loot from kills.

]
Brick [Tank]as himself.

Finally we have Brick the tank of the group. His main skill is berserk which makes Brick go on a fist fighting rampage. During which the skill gives Brick resistance to all damage and allows for health regeneration. The rest of his skilltree involves health and defensive boosts, explosives and rocket prowess, and better melee skill.


So this game just came out today. Cel-shaded FPS? I'm sold. It looks a lot of fun and co-op sounds awesome. I guess it has a Diablo loot system too.

Bah, I have to wait another two weeks till I can get it :(
Really been looking forward to this game though. FPS-RPGs has been my favourite genre since S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl. And now I'll have something to do till Call of Pripyat is released next year :)

I may get this game, but I need to save money, especially for a laptop, and expenses.

I'll most likely play as Lilith, since I like to play a class that's new, which I'm regarding the other three are most likely what I'm already use to from other games.

I'm not quite sold. The gun generator sounds awesome but the characters are so dull. I guess I'm more into fireballs and necromancy than magic bullets and machine turrets.

Responsible for my own happiness? I can't even be responsible for my own breakfast

I cannot wait for this game, I absolutely love the artistic and thematic style, the gun generator sounds like it'll keep things fresh and interesting and the idea of running through the game 4-player co-op with my friends is just fantastic.

Been watching this for a couple months now, and it's finally here! :D

Yeah, I love me some co-op and I'm really really considering getting this. Looks great.

I think I first saw this in a gaming magazine about two years ago... I hadn't heard about it again until a couple weeks ago.

I think it looks fun, and the four-player co-op sounds great, but I don't really like the change in art style. Ever since Zelda: Windwaker, I've pretty much detested all things cel-shaded.

Lilith chick is pretty hot. My friend is really big into Xbox 360 so maybe he will have this for us to play when he gets back from college in the winter.

I've been watching Yoshi do a Lets Play on it. It looks awesome so far. If it still looks good later on I'll get it for sure :D

OVERWATCH STATUS GO

Finally bought this. Holy balls is it fun! I have yet to play on multiplayer, but single player is great so far.

Pretty soon, it'll start being too easy, so you should put it on another computer and play a LAN game with yourself if you have no one else to play with. Harder enemies, better loot.

I was kind of disappointed with how short it was, though.

I've been tempted by it but I'm not sure. I don't even know if my rig will play it at anything approaching decent settings.

This game is insane. Me and my friend played it for about 5 hours straight, and we only stopped because it was like, 4 in the morning.

That's no reason to stop ;O

FINALLY a RL friend of mine bought the game so I can try the multiplayer properly. Heard the public games was crap and the rest of the people I somewhat know live on the wrong side of the Atlantic Ocean :P

Same happened to me and I didn't go to work that day... And my friend came like 3 hours late to school.

Seriously the package should contain a warning label: "Do not play this if you have to get up next day - you WILL be late."

Anyone have a level 45+ that wants to help me with this damnable rakk hive? I run out of ammo every damned time I try to fight it.

Shoot the eyes, use alien weapons, and make good use of your specials. That thing is big, but no real threat, so take your time and finish it with specials if need be.
Also, weapons with high damage per shot and low rate of fire help.

Again, I run out of ammo. If someone's got a Roland with ammo regen mod, that would be enough :(
