Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot

The second piece of Borderlands DLC is now available. Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot introduces a new "riot" mode, in which you face "endless hordes of menacing antagonists, thirsting for carnage in tournaments where the rules of warfare are constantly changing." It seems that the add-on provides a series of tournament matches in the new "Underdome" arena, which is presided over by the titular Moxxi, a…

More-derlands: Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot

I've not even had time to starting playing the first bit of expansionising DLC for Borderlands and another one has been announced. Titled "Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot" it will apparently feature "an intense single-player or cooperative experience that expands the mayhem by adding three new Riot Mode arenas where players will endure an onslaught of Pandora’s baddest enemies." Hmm. Additionally: "Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot also…

Borderlands’ Dr Ned Will See You Now

The Zombie Island Of Dr Ned, Borderlands' first piece of downloadable content, is now available. You can get it here (link dead at time of writing, which is a lot of use...) for retail versions of the game, and here for the Steam version. I'm not sure about other digi-download versions, but I'd assume the retail patch will work? Any ideas about that, comment below.…

Borderlands: Zombie Island Footage

UPDATE: Patch ahoy! Zombies, zombies, zombies. We might as well rename the PC the Personal Zombie Slayer. Borderlands' zombie island DLC expansion, The Zombie Island Of Dr Ned, is out on consoles on the 24th of this month, and should be available for PC shortly thereafter. We're still chasing the exact PC details from 2K. It features some freaky-looking zombies, Borderlands style, as well as…

No Brainers: Borderlands 2, DLC

Borderlands 2 is probably going to happen, if comments made in this interview are to be believed. Mike Neumann told the award-looting VG247.com that “Everyone here loves the franchise, and it seems like the public is really coming back with praise and love. So yeah, if everything makes sense, Borderlands 2 seems like a no-brainer to me.” The downloadable content, Zombie Island of Dr. Ned,…

Borderlands Tweaks

I've been meaning to put up some Borderlands tweaking instructions all week, but I don't think I could have done it better than this thread on the Gearbox forums. Thanks to Mr Berry for pointing that out to us. Crucially, one of the commands in there allows you disable the voice-comms for the game, so you can use something more sensible. We've had no word…

The RPS Verdict: Borderlands

We've played Gearbox's fancy-lookin' "role-playing shooter", Borderlands, and we're ready for a verdict. What will we have to say? Jim: Who wants to try to define the game in a single sentence then, eh? Kieron: Hellgate in a desert, but not shit. Alec: There's some sort definition involving the words "Diablo" and "guns", but I can't work out how to stick them together.

So Soon? Borderlands DLC Incoming

There's still a week until the thing goes on sale, but seems Gearbox/2K are confident enough in their impending shooty-bang-bang/looty-grab-grab game that they've already confirmed its first DLC. You'll never guess what it's about. I mean, it's not like it could be zombies - that undead horse has already had a brutal flogging everywhere else. It's zombies.

Teenage Wasteland: Borderlands Char Dev

There's been a lot of people asking questions about Borderland's intricacies over in the Co-op impressions thread yesterday. Specifically, how much of an RPG it actually is. Well, the what-is-an-RPG always opens a particular can of debate, but in terms of character development, that they've lobbed the character skill tress online can give you a handle of the whole action/RPG mix. Here's sneaky-lady Lilith ,…

Borderlands: 100Hrs Long, Slight Delay

Bah: The PC version of Borderlands has been delayed until October 26th in the US and October 30th in the rest of the world. Why WHY? "Optimization", that's why. Perhaps even optimisation. Stupid PCs and their different cogs. Hurrah: While talking to MTV Gearbox creative director Mikey Neumann said it took him a rather long time to get through the game. “It took me about…

Siren, Soldier, Hunter, Brick

The latest Borderlands trailer is turgid with game footage: terrain, buildings, vehicles, bad-dudes, 'splosions. It also takes an opportunity to introduce the four characters, with the soldier seemingly being all about guns, the siren doing stealth and area-of-effect stuff (possibly?), the hunter doing headshots, and Brick having some bolt-encrusted fists. Four-player co-op is the new two-player co-op, it seems. And I'm firmly in the pro…

Borderlands Claptrap Web Series #1

Gearbox have released the first in what purports to be a series of making-of clips for Borderlands, starring the comedy robot, Claptrap. In this opening skit it seems that Claptrap might be not-so-gently mocking the ill-tempered Christian Bale, while also revealing that monster stats in Borderlands will be procedurally generated, just like the guns. Go take a look...

There’s Money In Them Hills: Borderlands Footage

A montage of Borderlands footage has appeared at Games Trailers. It doesn't look the most official of videos, but it contains excellent examples of the frenetic nature of the game, as well as showing off the concept art-style graphics at full speed. Borderlands is one of the games to brave the pre-Christmas storm, set to appear on the 23rd October, which is four days before…

RPS Interrogation: Randy Pitchford Vs The Fans

Hyper-stylised FPS-RPG Borderlands is shaping up to be one of the best action games of the year. In case you missed it, I previewed it here. A couple of days back, I also sat down with Gearbox's garrulous bossman Randy Pitchford; I was there on behalf of a magazine, but saved some time at the end for something a little different - a few questions…

Hands-On Preview: Borderlands

A little while back, I spent a few hours playing Gearbox Software's upcoming, toon-styled, free-roaming FPS-RPG. I was horribly, desperately hungover at the time, and was almost sick on Randy Pitchford while he was cheerily explaining the thinking behind Borderlands to me. I am the most professional of all the games journalists. But that doesn't matter. Only the game matters. Here's how it is.

Role, Playing, Shooter: Borderlands Trailer

Looks like Gamespot managed to get first dibs on the new Borderlands trailer - I've posted it below. Lots of splattery monster killing, some bits and pieces of game footage, and plenty of random post-apocalyptic carnage. There also appears to be a comedy robot. Borderlands is, as someone pointed out in the previous release-date post, being sold as a role-playing shooter: an RPS. Does that…

Borderlands Release Date Set: 23rd October

You know how often it goes like this? "Super-Exciting Game IV was due to be released for PC in three months, but publishers Idiotsoft have announced it's now to be exclusive for Dreamcast and not released in the UK until the new millennium." So when it doesn't, I think it's worth noticing. 2K have announced a release date for Borderlands, 23rd October for Europe, and…

Pitchford Talks Borderlands

Gearbox big chief Randy Pitchford was grabbed by GameTrailers and he unloaded his explanation of Borderlands, which you can see below. What's interesting about this is how the pitch for the game has subtly changed. Originally it was much more "co-op shooter with loads of guns", and now it's "concept art shooter with RPG elements". Pitchford flags up Fallout 3 and Bioshock, but the game…
