There are over a half of a million different guns in Borderlands. That seemed to be the main selling point in this first public showing of Gearbox Software's next original IP. Of course, guns aren't the only thing Borderlands has to offer. It's also a four player, co-operative sci-fi shooter with a hefty dose of RPG elements and a bit of Diablo inspiration thrown in for good measure. It also has over 500,000 guns.
Gearbox has been working on Borderlands for roughly 20 months, but the team still has another 15-18 months to go before we'll see the game on store shelves. As such, the early build only showcased a few select areas, story segments, and guided gameplay. The demo was only about a half of an hour long, but it gave a great impression of the direction the team is taking with the game.
