The game is described as being a sci-fi action one, with full co-op support, vehicular combat and featuring a content generation system allowing for "near-endless variety" in mission, environment, enemy, weapon, item and character customization.
"Borderlands creates a universe of gameplay that goes far beyond anything anyone would expect. We're tapping into every bit of Gearbox Software's experience with the biggest science fiction video game franchises, then taking everything way past the next level," said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. "The team at 2K Games shares our passion for pushing boundaries in gameplay and storytelling and are absolutely perfect partners for Borderlands."
Borderlands will be released during the holiday 2008 season on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
