Borderlands Guide writes: Those active on the forums know that some major stuff has gone down in the past 24 hours. First, came word that Gearbox has broken their long silence on Borderlands and is sharing details in an upcoming issue of PC Gamer.
Second came this image (thanks JohnnyMac). Although there's no confirmation, the general consensus here and on the official Gearbox forums is that it is of Borderlands. I e-mailed Gearbox tonight to hopefully get some info.
The pic looks legit but comes as a shock. It's a radically different style than we've seen before. Previous screenshots depicted a gritty, rugged gameworld. The alleged new one is less realistic and more stylized. Reads a caption on the image: "Looks like a panel from a comic book. It's, in fact, a screenshot."
