About Borderlands 2

Borderlands is a highly original game by video game developer Gearbox Software. It’s a first person shooter with role playing game elements and a heavy emphasis on multiplayer action. What made Borderlands such a massive success was its system of weapons crafting and content generation which allowed you to create all different kinds of weaponary. Borderlands also has a truly unique visual style which complements the game’s narrative. You find yourself playing as a treasure hunter who is in search of alien artifacts. With four player co-op online mode and two-player split screen action, Boderlands became one of the quintessential multiplayer experiences when it was released back in 2009.

The story of Borderlands takes place in the future at a time when colonised ships entered a fictional world called Pandora which is smaller than the moon but bigger than Manhattan, as the game states. The colonists are in search are a more prosperous mode of life and are in search of valuable resources like gold. But Pandora is a wasteland with nothing there.  The population of the world is led into chaos and anarchy while some of the settlers seek out valuable artifacts left by alien beings.

But you wont play it for the story. You’ll play it for the awesome multiplayer experience and the tons of different weapons. Borderlands is just a unique, cool, slick shooter that cannot be missed.
