Borderlands 2 Launches On Steam For Linux
Borderlands 2 is self-described as "[following] the story of four new Vault Hunters as they fight to free Pandora from the clutches of Handsome Jack, the brilliant, charismatic, and utterly despicable CEO of the Hyperion Corporation. Players will fight across the whole of Pandora to stop Jack from awakening an ancient alien evil known only as "the Warrior." Their quest will bring them into contact with some familiar faces from the old game – most notably, the original four Vault Hunters: Roland, Lilith, Brick and Mordecai. They, along with some brand new characters, will help players defeat Jack, destroy the Warrior, and save Pandora."
Borderlands 2 can be bought on Steam where it's currently on sale for $5 USD rather than the usual $20 price.
Borderlands: The Presequel can also be pre-ordered on Steam for $60. The game is expected to be released on 14 October and will feature native Linux support. This new game is also powered by the Unreal Engine 3.
Given its UE3 engine, I'll see about getting a benchmark script in the Phoronix Test Suite and OpenBenchmarking.org for these interesting games.
