Borderlands Online

…But only for China. Say hello to Borderlands Online!

Made for China, and most likely better than the inevitable knock-off that will be circulating the Asian web soon, Borderlands Online is a Shanda Games developed entry into the series. It’s 100% legit, as the game is being developed alongside 2K China and Gearbox, and will have a dedicated Shanghai development and support team.

As usual, you’ll be able to play as one of four classes: The Soldier who can deploy a turret, the Hunter who can summon a mechanical familiar,a new Siren who can summon a firebird and a Berserker who can punch real good. It’ll be a PC and mobile game, with MMORPG aspects. Combine that with the terrain design of past Borderlands games, the loot system and all those many, many guns and you have what could be a solid MMO here. Here’s a closer look at the characters, via 2P:

I could see Borderlands working like that. It’s already that kind of game, but on a smaller four-player scale. Of course, I’m not keen on emigrating to China just so that I can play a video game. Borderlands Online isn’t the only big-name game from the west that is making a journey to China. Call Of Duty also has an online version on the way, as the Chinese market has become rather lucrative as of late. Borderlands Online is also expected to be free to play, because freemium has a killer success rate in that country.

And if the guns of Borderlands get reworked to be even rarer than usual, with legendaries now up for real cash, then this game is going to make an absolute killing.

    That sniper looks like a mis-mash of past MGS female characters.

      But if they do that they will need to remove 80% of the missions. Only have a few maps and decrease the amount you can level. Now that sounds like a winning game!

    Gearbox never saw a franchise they didn’t think they could milk into oblivion. I guess Randy Pritchford got his business acumen from the heady days of 3dRealms farming Duke Nukem out to every Tom, Dick, and Harry company that wanted to make a cheapo game.

    He must have sat there and thought, “Man, I wish I had a franchise I could do that with!”

    And now he does.
