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 footage that accompanies his chatter demonstrates that the game is nothing like either of them, in fact it's got more of a multiplayer feel going on, and I wonder to what extent the FPS-Diablo-with-guns principles of it are actually going to make the game into a kind of co-op dungeon crawl. The persistent character stuff still intrigues me, and although I'm less excited about this game than when it was announced, I'm looking forward to the October release.
