Welcome to Pandora: Borderlands Special Edition Coming To Mac on December 3rd

Gearbox Software’s Borderlands was one of my favorite video games of the past year, but unless you’re willing to reboot into Boot Camp, it doesn’t run on a Mac.

It’s a shame, because in many non-trivial ways, it’s the best multiplayer Diablo-like since, well, Diablo II. Borderlands takes place on a Mad Max style extraterrestrial world in which every chest, container or killed enemy spits out a treasure trove of randomly created weapons, each with their own unique special abilities.

I spent about 80 hours playing through Borderlands when it was released on the Xbox 360 earlier this year… such a substantial block of time that the inamorata can’t even hear the game’s title without whiplashing herself with an eye roll… so no one tell her that Borderlands is coming to the Mac coming December 3rd, complete with all the DLC, for the quite reasonable price of $49.95.
