Gearbox throwing Borderlands release “extravasplosion”

By Nathan Grayson, Thursday, 15 October 2009 03:00 GMT


Borderlands is launching on October 20, and for Gearbox Software, that means it’s time to pop out of the development trenches and pop open a few bottles of celebratory champagne. And play more Borderlands.

Even better, on October 17, you can join them. Well, if you live in or around Dallas, Texas, anyway. Just head over to Gearbox’s website, RVSP, and you’ll gain access to some early hands-on time with Borderlands – not to mention a live performance from the Beastie Boys’ Mix Master Mike.

Also, a certain Texas-dwelling VG247 blogger might be attending, and we’ve heard that he absolutely loves being made to look utterly incompetent at first-person shooters. So there’s also that.
