Ever wondered how Borderlands would be like back in the 16-bit days? Well people at Gearbox wondered about the same thing. To further promote Borderlands 2, Gearbox released a Free-To-Play 16-bit browser-based version of the first game for us to enjoy.
It's definitely a unique way to market the game, and to be honest this 16-bit version isn't too bad. It's an overhead, arcade-style shooter. You still level up and you open up chests to pick up new guns with unique properties.
Borderlands 2 has gone golden, which means that the game is complete. Mass production has started and Gearbox devs are currently working on future content(DLC).
