The ESRB has just listed a Game of the Year edition for the first Borderlands game. According to the listing, Borderlands Game of the Year will be coming to current-gen platforms (including the PC) though there isn’t any ETA yet.
As its description reads, Borderlands is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a Vault Hunter (i.e., treasure hunter) on a quest to uncover an alien vault on the planet of Pandora.
“Players will explore an open-world environment and interact with characters, while completing mission objectives. Combat missions require players to use futuristic firearms (e.g., acid pistols, electrical shotguns, grenade launchers) to kill human bandits, alien creatures, and robotic sentries. Battles are frenetic and accompanied by screams of pain, gunfire, and large explosions. Human enemies emit large splashes of blood when shot and killed; some attacks may result in dismemberment and/or decapitation.”
Now I’m pretty sure that this isn’t what most Borderlands fans have been looking forward to, but it’s at least something. Still, my guess is that the third part in the series will be revealed next week at PAX East.
Borderlands Game of the Year has been rated “M” for mature audience.
Stay tuned for more!
