    FAQ
    What is Borderlands?
    Borderlands is an upcoming sci-fi RPS game with 4-player co-op. Borderlands boasts millions of guns. Players can choose from four character classes that grow throughout the game, each with their own skill trees. There is vehicle combat as well.

    What classes can I choose from?
    Siren (Lilith) - can phase walk
    Hunter (Mordecai) - uses a bloodwing pet for his active skill
    Berserker (Brick) - goes into a rage and punches things
    Soldier (Roland) - deploys a turret

    Is there a level cap?
    Yes, the level cap is 50.

    What about replayability?
    Borderlands has a new game+ feature, where you can start fresh with tougher enemies and better loot!

    What's a "badass?"
    WoW has elites, Borderlands has badasses. These enemies will be tougher and will drop better loot than regular old enemies do.

    What happens when I die?
    When you die, you enter "Fight for your life!" You drop down and are unable to move, but are still able to fire shots for a time while your screen dims. If you deal a killing blow to an enemy in this state, you are returned to life with some of your shield and health restored. If you don't, you are returned to the last New-U station for a fee.

    Can I trade guns/equipment?
    Currently, trading works by tossing the desired items out onto the ground for the other person.

    System Requirements
    OS: Windows XP/Vista
    Processor: 2.4 Ghz or equivalent processor
    Memory: 1GB System RAM (2GB recommended with Vista)
    Graphics: 256mb video ram or better (GeForce 8 series or higher/Radeon R8xx series)
    Hard Drive: 8 GB or more free space
    Sound: Windows compatible sound card

    Game is released at 00:00 on the 29th October in PAL region.

    I couldn't find info on it the other day.

    But as far as I'm aware it's a hybrid of FPS and RPG?

    I may have to buy it.

    The pcgamer review also stated they saw hundred sof types of weapons all different and nodded in different ways.

    iirc the designers estimate there are over half a million different weapons in the game

    the being able to drop into another persons single player for co op then leave and keep all, the stuff you gain there sounds cool :D

    maybe there'll be a proper way of trading gear (or just dropping it and letting them pick it up)

    I'm very intrerested in this, the graphics style looks interesting and the game intself rather fun.

    Once it's out and if it turns out OK, I'll be up for some co-op shenanigans.
