Borderlands to have weapon-based trading cards?[shortblog]


Randy Pitchford from Gearbox did an interview in Sydney recently and let slip some mroe tasty nuggest of info on Borderlands. You can read the full interview here, but I'll summarise some cool points:

The game will feature a function that will allow you to export a JPG of any gun you find which can then be uploaded to a community website that will allow you to compare stats. Awesome. Considering there's going to be a shit-tonne of guns in this game, I can't wait to show off all the tasty kit I get. Anyone up for making a Borderlands trading card game?

The game isn't using Games For Windows Live. Hooray!

Mod SDK at launch? Not confirmed, but Randy seems keen on it. One thing the PC version will have is a demo benchmarking tool. Which is rather cool, as HL: The Lost Coast has been my bench marking tool for a while, but it's not really up to it now.

Borderlands is looking like a great, fun game. Blasting through this is going to be one of the highlights towards the end of the year I'm sure.

About Alasdair Duncanone of us since 9:17 AM on 10.13.2007

Alasdair Duncan is that bearded, bespectacled Scotsman that covers PC gaming that is not Fraser Brown. A long time Destructoid community member and forum moderator, he covers adventure, puzzle, FPS and all kinds of games on the PC. Watch, as he adds more games to his Steam library with only the vaguest hope of ever playing most of his games.

Alasdair has been gaming since his mother bought a Commodore 64 back in the early 1980's. He adores Deus Ex, GTA Vice City, Team Fortress 2, Borderlands, Super Mario Brothers 3 and all those weird indie titles on Steam.

You can meet Alasdair at places like PAX where he tries to convince people he isn't a) drunk or b) Irish.
