So how do you get some excitement going for your new video game and still stand out from other companies? Well Gearbox has launched a teaser game that looks and feels as though it’s more than 20 years old. Awesome marketing guys. They are intent on whetting your appetite for Borderland 2 with The Border Lands. A free to play game while you wait for the real deal.
The Border Lands is a 16-bit version of the upcoming Borderlands 2. The four main characters are all here as playable heroes in this simplified version of the game. Players can use machine guns, pistols, flamethrowers, shotguns, and other tools of destruction just like in the real game.
It’s basically just shoot, shoot and shoot again until things are dead! Borderlands 2 launches on September 21.
