Gearbox has officially blown the lid on its mysterious iOS title Borderlands Legends, due on 31st October for $4.99 on iPhone and $6.99 on iPad.

Like the console Borderlands titles, Legends is an action-RPG with plenty of loot drops, character customisation, and it even stars the returning foursome that made up the first Borderland's playable cast. Unlike its console brethren, Legends is played from an isometric perspective.

Even more unique is that a single player can control up to all-four characters simultaneously, according to an Entertainment Weekly exclusive first look at the game. The report also noted that objectives will be randomised and players will have an "unlimited ability to level-up." There will also be a "strategic cover system" and boss fights too.

"With intuitive, touch-based commands and slick UI, Borderlands Legends combines the inventory and skill tree management that gamers already love about the franchise with a layer of strategy that is popular on mobile devices," said Gearbox's Marion Dreo on the developer's official site.
