2K Games has snatched up the publishing rights to Gearbox Software’s next-gen project ‘Borderlands,’ due in stores on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Vista in the 2008 holiday shopping season. ‘Borderlands’ is the first in a series of planned sci-fi games the ‘Brothers In Arms’ developer has planned.
Here’s more ‘Borderlands’ information we culled from the official press release:
Gearbox Software has developed revolutionary new technology to create Borderlands’ incredible layers of gameplay depth. Borderlands features a groundbreaking content generation system allowing for near-endless variety in missions, environments, enemies, weapons, item drops and character customization.
“Borderlands represents an important evolutionary leap in game design and technology,” said Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K. “By utilizing revolutionary new technology to create thousands of unique, randomly generated missions, weapons and situations, Borderlands will raise the bar for next gen action games.”
Borderlands is an extraordinary cooperative experience, allowing for multiple players to share the same game experience simultaneously online. Players can freely join or leave each other’s games at anytime, or choose to play in the full single-player mode. Borderlands features life-like character animations, impressive real-time physics, and customizable vehicles.
