Gearbox trademarks Borderworlds

Series to visit a different planet?

Gearbox has trademarked the name Borderworlds, suggesting that Borderlands will expand into a series - as if you ever believed otherwise.

Even Take-Two top brass Strauss Zelnick and Ben Feder referred to the RPG shooter as a "key franchise" during an earnings call last night (listened to by VG247).

The Borderworlds trademark (unearthed, as always, by superannuation) protects the name but offers no further information.

Perhaps there will be different worlds to travel to in the game, and maybe there are spaceships.

Borderlands, released in October, aimed to recreate the randomly generated replayability of Diablo in a gun-based post-apocalyptic world. The game took longer than originally planned because of a massive visual overhaul, which remains one of the defining characteristics of the game.

Rounding off the package is online cooperative support right through the campaign for four people (or two locally). You can play the game alone, but with a group of friends Borderlands is nigh-on peerless.

Head over to our Borderlands review to find out why.
