2K Games announces the publishing of Borderland, a Sci-Fi FPS by Gearbox that looks alot like the recently unveiled "Rage" from Id Software. So much Mad Max love lately, great stuff ! Oh, and Borderland will feature an "unmatched" cooperative gaming experience, like every big action game coming out these days. I won't complain against this fantastic trend :)

Snoopers, this game is announced to be RPG.

Anyway, as it was already seen in Rage, if other dev was developing it, I wouldn't anticipate it. But it's teh Gearbox guys! After they started to make their own games since BIA, these guys just rocks! When Gearbox promise 'unmatched', we can easily expect it IMO.

This is not what I read in the press release ! There are some RPG elements, but it's a FPS:

New sci-fi shooter from award-winning developer Gearbox Software blends first-person action with character progression and hundreds of thousands of weapons for an unmatched cooperative gaming experience

Looks great, but another FPS?

It's not that i don't like fps, but i wish developers created more games in different genres for the 360, more platforming, third person action games? it's been over a yr and th 360 is simply full of racing and fps games.

i remember microsoft being adamant and stating the xbox360 is not a pc but a console, but the type of gamess it has as a big list are all pc type games, fps, racing.. only thing it lacks is a big MMORPG from being named a PC gamers dream machine

though the game does look great, hopefully GC should unviel more games and more info on this game

It's multiplatform--and you can't expect them to turn down a solid looking game just because it's played from the first person perspective. Gearbox makes FPS games.. I don't really see what the big deal is. I agree, that more variety is always a good thing--but that doesn't mean there's no room for more games in this particular genre either.. plus this seems like it may be pretty unique.

Well, unique in a way that's a lot like "Rage" at least.

This is the third Gearbox FPS in the works, btw.. so don't get too upset when you see the new Aliens game either :P

another FPS...that first pic does look rather cool

Damn I love these post apocalyptic sci-fi wastelands, reminds me of a few games out there like WarDevil, Mad Max, Universal Soldier, Resident Evil Extinction...etc.

One of my favorite genre for sure...everyone in cargo, dirty, weapons, bad ass characters...etc LOVE IT!

I am for sure VERY hyped for this game...FPS RPG but instead of swords and all that stuff, its all futuristic weapons.

I do love the guy jumping to the other vehicle for an attack move though.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (6 Hours ago)
