Jeg har virkelig set frem til dette spil. Jeg følger spændt med på deres hjemmeside for at opfange det nyeste nye, og jeg må godt nok sige, det her spil ser rigtig lovende ud. Den grafiske del synes jeg er nice det er look-a-like Crackdown, og det med at der er over en halv million forskellige våben! Det er virkelige imponerende.

It's like unearthing the bomb shelter where Walt Disney's head is frozen and finding out he's still animating things. Something like that.
I always suspected Borderlands would play well; I'm just happy Gearbox went back and made sure it looked as good, too. Hands-on soon, please!
In the universe of Borderlands, humanity has expanded and colonized other planets. Borderlands takes place on the planet Pandora. Pandora is said to have a 60-hour day and decade long years. This is significant because when Pandora is first colonized, it is winter and most of the wildlife is in a deep state of hibernation. However, when spring comes around, the wildlife begin to wake up and the colonists find themselves being attacked by many nasty creatures. Many of the colonists leave and those that stay either are too poor to afford passage off, or looking for something. The most common item of interest on the planet Pandora is the vault. The vault is a giant storage facility carved into the side of a mountain and is said to contain all kinds of alien technology. However, the people who discovered the vault were killed before they could open it or broadcast the location. Once the news of this vault got out many treasure hunters arrived at Pandora to search for it including at least one of the playable characters.
There will be four playable characters in the game, all with unique skills, abilities, and back stories. As these characters level up, the player can increase basic stats for them such as health totals, ammo capacity, and accuracy. Each character also has three unique focus skill trees to develop. There is also an accessory item type specific to each character.
Roland is a former soldier of the Crimson Lance, a sort of highly trained private military that disregards law and order. A decade-old vendetta is rekindled when Roland learns that the leader of the Brigadiers has a suspiciously similar name to a man he has sworn to kill. Some of Roland's abilities are meant to supplement and support the party. His Leadership skill can boost the party's experience gains, while his Medical skill will increase health regeneration, and Support will increase weapon damage or regenerate ammunition for the party, Roland is a soldier class and the only class that doesn't have to worry about ammo as a special backpack produces an infinite supply.
Mordecai came to Pandora in search of a man from his past named Demosthenes. Upon learning that Demosthenes has died, Mordecai sets off to learn how he died and what he was carrying. Mordecai's play style is that of a lone ranger, preferring to snipe enemies from afar. Some of his special abilities can augment the party's damage from headshots or give accuracy boosts and is a hunter class. Later in the game, he will befriend an alien creature that will assist in combat.
Once a human, Lilith at one point was turned into a siren. One of only six Sirens, they are a group of people with unbelievable powers, but no way to control them. She comes to Pandora in search of another Siren, in an effort to find out more about herself. Lilith is essentially the mage of the group, using her Siren powers to support the group and attack the enemy. Some of her powers include the ability to increase the group's rate of fire, as well as the power to create temporal bubbles, which she can manipulate to slow down enemies and hostile projectiles or speed up allies.
A massive specimen of a man who likes to use his fists to smash the enemy above all else. He wears a necklace around his neck adorned with the paw of his beloved deceased dog. He fills in the tank niche and can take quite a beating as well having the ability to chug berserker-state inducing pills for short bursts of power.
Borderlands is built from the ground up to be an exciting, intuitive co-operative experience for up to four players simultaneously that rewards players who work together and invest in co-op skills. Split screen is also supported.
Short facts about co-op:
* Borderlands features drop-in, drop-out co-op with up to four players.
* Players can use their persistent character to join friends or play solo.
* Yes, Borderlands features 2-player local splitscreen on consoles!
* The game will scale in various ways depending on the number of players
* You can play with anyone else, regardless of level!
* You can play with a group regardless of class (there could be four Bricks in a group)
* You will not be able to play cross-platform
* You can challenge your friends to a duel anywhere in the world, or fight in crafted arenas

The game will also have a unique feature similar to Diablo's random level generation system. This new system will generate more than 650,000 different guns as well as at least 500,000 different item and armor variations, according to the preview of the game in Game Informer magazine,
"We saw a ridiculous amount of guns, but perhaps the strangest was a revolver that fired shotgun shells. Gearbox is constantly surprised with what the system comes up with. They've seen rifles shoot everything from homing darts to rockets. 'One of the guns tracks onto something and locks, and after three seconds, [the target] suddenly explodes,' director Matthew Armstrong says."
According to a more recent interview by 1up.com with CEO and president of Gearbox Software, Randy Pitchford, the game's astounding arsenal will feature over 650,000 weapons. An addition of 150,000 new weapons came from the inclusion of alien technology.
The features of the maps will also be randomly generated. While towns, and the general paths connecting them will remain the same, Borderlands features a system that randomly instances the surrounding landscape, with randomly placed things such as bunkers, towers, caves, enemies, and exploding cacti. All of this is done without a loading screen. Gearbox plans that the player will not see a loading screen after they boot up the game.
It was also shown at E3 2009 that even the monsters would have a randomization system. One example shown was a spider that leaped around and would jump onto players' faces, while another variant rolled up into a ball and attacked people.
