Borderlands 2 Browser Game Takes You Back To 1989
Did you know that the first Borderlands game ever was actually released in 1989? Well, it wasn't! However, that didn't stop Gearbox Software from making a retro-style, browser-based game to promote Borderlands 2.
The browser game, playable here, is a top-down shooter with 8-bit graphics. You pick one of the four characters in Borderlands 2 and then shoot up waves of enemies. Occasionally an enemy will drop items like a flamethrower or railgun.
It's a surprisingly addictive little game. Maybe that shouldn't be surprising, because it has some of the main ingredients of Borderlands 2: hordes of enemies, shooting and loot. All it needs is co-op and it'd be the exact same as the console/PC game. Well, co-op and polished graphics. And a storyline. And talent trees. And - okay, the two games are completely dissimilar.
Borderlands 2 will debut on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on September 18th.
