Borderlands is ready, set, SKAAAAAAGS for a launch on iPad and iPhone later this month, as unofficially outed by an ad in the Borderlands 2 digital strategy guide.
The (inevitable) iOS spin-off, Borderlands Legends, is apparently “specifically designed for mobile and tablet”, and features original Borderlands protagonists Roland, Lilith, Mordecai, and Brick who must “take out waves of enemies”. A vault hunter’s job is never done, especially not in skag mating season. The twist is, it’s always skag mating season.
According to the bullet-listed marketing blurb, Borderlands Legends also includes:
- Randomised missions
- Thousands of different weapons
- 36 unique powers and abilities
- Strategic cover system
- Fight for your life mode
Although Gearbox hasn’t formally announced the game yet, the ad has it scheduled for launch in October, so that gives them about a week to catch up with everybody on the internet.
