Borderlands Game of the Year Edition

The holiday wish list of proper Mac gamers everywhere has just been updated. Gearbox Software and Feral Interactive have announced that the Mac edition of Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition will be hitting stores on December 3rd. The package comes complete with the Borderlands stand-alone game, its entire game add-on library, and a bonus fold out map of Pandora.

From the press release:

Borderlands has been a runaway commercial and critical hit since its release last year. Players are able to take on one of four bounty hunters, each with unique skills and weapon proficiencies, as they take quest for information and valuable alien artifacts rumored to reside in ‘The Vault’. Players have only their wits and whatever weapons they can find to face off against the numerous enemies they encounter while searching for the Vault.

Borderlands sports a unique combination of features that make it a gaming experience unlike anything else on the Mac. Prime among these are a groundbreaking content-generation system that provides a nearly endless variety of weapons, robust four-player co-op support that makes for a compelling multiplayer experience, RPG-style character progression allied to an FPS-style game mechanics and a super sharp visual style that gives the game a highly distinctive comic book look.
