The MMORPG will go live next year and feature new classes.
Borderlands will finally be receiving an online-only title with Borderlands Online but it will only be available in China according to a recent announcement from 2K China, Shanda Games and Gearbox Software.
The MMO will be live next year but beta sign-ups are currently available for those who want to give it a try before release. It’s worth noting that Borderlands Online will be available for PC and mobile devices. It will also add some new classes though more information – such as whether the game will be a first person shooter like all the games in the series – is still to come.
The last major game in the franchise was Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel which was a significant entry but not a full-fledged sequel. It took place between the first and second games, fleshing out the story of Handsome Jack and how Hyperion rose to power. What are your thoughts on the announcement of Borderlands Online?
