Gearbox enlisted Demiurge’s talent once again for their genre-bending FPS, Borderlands. On the treacherous planet of Pandora, teams of brave Fortune Hunters search for the legendary Alien Vault. With millions of weapons types, team up with friends in the co-op campaign, as well as fight against them in our competitive Arena mode.
Borderlands has several unique features which blend the RPG and FPS genres. Here at Demiurge, we were responsible for preliminary development of the Arena mode. These special locations feature both team-based and free-for-all style competition. We worked quickly, building a functional player vs. player mode within our first week. Our goals from there were creating interesting maps, balanced combat, and endless fun!
