So, what is Borderlands Legends? It's a top-down, squad-based shooter that features the cast of the original Borderlands. In fact, you'll be tasked with controlling all four of that game's heroes at the same time in Legends, as you mutilate Bandits, Skags, and even the Crimson Lance across randomly generated scenarios.
As you play, you'll earn experience points and find and buy guns just like you've been doing in Borderlands 2, except you'll be using your skills and powers from cover.
This is all according to Entertainment Weekly's early look at the title, which sheds a lot more light on Legends. Previously, all we knew was that Legends had a cover system, random missions, and guns thanks to an ad embedded in a digital strategy guide. Now, we have an idea at least what kind of game Legends is trying to be.
We'll have to see if this all pans out, though. It's such a different creative direction.
Give EW's preview a read if you're interested in learning some more about Legends. The write-up certainly makes Legends sound like a more ... exciting game than we thought it was going to be, and that's cool. Legends hits on October 30th, and we'll certainly dig in and give you the full skinny as soon as possible.
