Borderlands Legends now available for iPad and iPhone; launch trailer inside
2K Games announced that the Borderlands franchise has broken out into the world of mobile gaming. Today, Borderlands Legends, a brand new blend of action-RPG and strategy gameplay, is now available on the App Store for $4.99 (on iPhone or iPod Touch) and $6.99 (on iPad).
Designed exclusively for mobile devices, Legends lets players assume control of the vault hunters from the original Borderlands (Brick, Mordecai, Lilith and Roland) and take on waves vicious of enemies ranging from Skags and Bandits to Psychos and Bruisers. In order to survive, players are going to have to think strategically and plan ahead or face unpleasant consequences.
Luckily, they will be able to arm themselves with "bazillions of randomly generated weapons," and shields, as well as "dozens" of unlockable skills and abilities. Tying all this together are "intuitive, touch-based commands", which allow players to easily control their vault hunters through randomized maps, as well as navigate menus and manage inventory and skill trees with ease.
"The release of Borderlands Legends exemplifies our commitment to growing the Borderlands franchise," said Christoph Hartmann, 2K's president. "By offering a high-quality Borderlands experience designed specifically for mobile devices, fans can immerse themselves in the world of Pandora no matter where they are."
After trying the game out, EW.com had this to say: "Adopting the same artistic approach as its console counterparts, Borderlands Legends sports a vibrant, stylized look that's nearly indistinguishable from its big brothers. Legends' strategic focus engages the mind more than the trigger finger and I generally had a finger-blistering blast."
To celebrate Borderlands Legends' release, 2K unveiled the game's launch trailer, which we have posted below for your convenience.
