2K Games just sent over these brand new screens of Borderlands, and if you’ve seen the game before, your jaw might have just dropped. Cell shading, bitches.
I dismissed the game after seeing it at E3 as another brown shooter where you shoot brown things in a brown environment. They were trying some unique things with vehicles and four player co-op play, the RPG elements and even the insane amount of weapons (which I believe was then at around 600k unique ones all thought up by the comp on the fly) but this- this is different, at least.
Developer Gearbox Software is incredibly well-regarded among shooter fans, and rightly so, but this might have been the smartest way to make their shooter stand out from others. We’ve all played post-apocalyptic shooters before, but we haven’t played one with an animated look like this.
