It has been a month since Gearbox’s role playing shooter – Borderlands 2 – made its way to the shelves, and now the company is setting its eyes on the handheld gaming market. According to Eurogamer, Borderlands Legends will be making its way to iOS devices later this month. The game is set to star the characters from the first game – Lilith, Mordecai, Roland, and Brick. It will also feature thousands of weapons to collect – presumably randomly generated ones.
Information about the iOS version of the game was revealed through an advert in the official strategy guide for Borderlands 2. Gearbox is yet to officially announce Borderlands Legends. The game will have you kill enemies for cash, buy weapons, earn experience, level up and unlock new abilities. It will also feature unique skill trees for all characters. A unique addition to the handheld game will be a “strategic cover system”, along with “randomised” missions.
Borderlands Legends will be seeing a release this month
Recently, information on what could possibly be the second major downloadable content for Borderlands 2 was leaked thanks to the trophies added in to the PlayStation 3 version of the game. The DLC, named Mr Tongue’s Campaign of Carnage, is speculated to be another big campaign mission that will be the second DLC for the game’s Season Pass.
There are three trophies that have been added to the game for Mr. Tongue’s Campaign of Carnage which reveals the objective “Long Way to the Top”, some side missions, and a trophy for collecting hidden pictures of Moxxi – a character who had her own DLC for the first Borderlands. So far, there has been no word from Gearbox about the DLC, so it could be weeks or months before release.
Gearbox had confirmed the Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty DLC earlier this month. "You can sense the pirate theme across the landscape, even though there's no water," said Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford. "It's all dried up. It feels more like Tatooine than an ocean. These bandits have really embraced the pirate lifestyle, and there's the legend of a treasure. That kicks off this whole adventure that the players can go on."
Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty is the first major DLC released for Borderlands 2 and will be included in the Season Pass. The DLC by itself is costs $9.99 (around Rs 524), but players can also buy the Season Pass for the game, which includes all four planned major DLCs and costs $29.99 (Rs 1,574 approx).
The Mechromancer DLC was recently released for those of us who hadn’t pre-ordered the game. The DLC contains a new character called Gaige the Mechromancer. Like every other class in the game, Gaige the Mechromancer also has a special ability called Deathtrap, which is a robot she can summon to presumably go on a murderous rampage against her enemies. Her three skill trees are Best Friends Forever, Little Big Trouble and Ordered Chaos. Gearbox has made her skill tree available on the skill calculator so you can get a closer look at her skills.
Borderlands 2 is available in retail stores for Rs 999 for the PC version, and Rs 2,499 for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 versions. The PC version of the game is also available on Steam for $59.99 (around Rs 3,100).
