Right now Steam are doing a special deal whereby you can get 66% off all their Borderlands stock.
You can pick Borderlands itself up for just £6.79, £6 less than the best price of £12.93 for a boxed version from The Hut or Lovefilm. Meanwhile the next best price for a downloadable version is over £18 more at £24.95 from Direct2Drive. Alternatively Steam are offering four copies for £20.38, so if you've got friends to team up with then you can each grab the game for just over £5 each.
All the DLC is also available with 66% off so you can pick up The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot and The Secret Armory of General Knoxx for £2.14 each.
Set on the hostile and unforgiving planet of Pandora, Borderlands places you into the shoes of one of four mercenary bounty hunters who have planted themselves onto this cruel wasteland in search of the legendary alien treasure hoarde, The Vault. There's very little more to the plot than this which largely serves as just a backdrop to the gameplay.
Borderlands is a first person shooter with rpg elements which developers Gearbox like to call a role-play-shooter. You get the format of a shooter, blended with elements like levelling up and upgradeable stats and skills, and an open world to have your wicked way with. It's likely that you'll spend a lot of time wandering Pandora looking for components and tweaking your weapons; there's an estimated 17 million variations available to you!
Borderlands is an original, stylish and very fun game and if you've not tried it yet then it's well worth a go at this bargain price.
