If you can’t get enough of the Borderlands universe these days, Gearbox Software may have a cure for you in the form of a new iOS spin-off game called Borderlands Legends. Legends blends the action-RPG formula from the console Borderlands games with a bit of strategy in a top-down experience for both the iPhone and iPad platforms. We’ve got a batch of screenshots to show off Borderlands Legends’ in action, and from the looks of them I would have to say that this game will be almost tower defense like.
Head on down after the break to check out 2K’s official synopsis of this upcoming mobile game, as well as checking out what it’ll look like. You’ve been thinking you may wait until this game goes on sale before you buy it…
2K Games and Gearbox Software are excited to announce Borderlands Legends, an all-new action packed Borderlands experience designed specifically for mobile devices and available for iOS on October, 31 2012 for $4.99 on iPhone and $6.99 on iPad.
Like the original Borderlands and Borderlands 2, Borderlands Legends blends two popular genres, action RPG and strategy, to create addictive, isometric gameplay that lets players level up their characters while fending off relentless waves of Skags, Bandits and other baddies.
“Behind the big guns of Brick, Lilith, Mordecai, and Roland, fans of the franchise will be treated to a fresh take on the series’ signature shoot-and-loot formula,” said Entertainment Weekly in a first look at Borderlands Legends.
The Borderlands universe is no longer just a console experience. With intuitive, touch-based commands and slick UI, Borderlands Legends combines the inventory and skill tree management that gamers already love about the franchise with a layer of strategy that is popular on mobile devices.
