2K Games has taken their promotions for Borderlands 2 to the next level today by releasing a fully playable 16-bit retro version of the game called The Border Lands. The game is playable in your browser and can be found here. For those of you that grew up in the 90’s you may not appreciate this “demake” as much as the older gamer generations, but it’s still a rad piece of marketing that’s more entertaining than watching a TV commercial. Kudos to 2K for thinking outside the box with their Borderlands 2 promotional campaign!
You can check out an old school review video on the game below, as well as a few screens from its luscious 16-bits of raw power. Once again if you want to play this 16-bit looter you should head on over to this link. You’ve become addicted to The Border Lands even though it looks like it’s from 1985…
