In the highly competitive world of first-person shooters, a title must distinguish itself somehow lest it gets lost in the crowd. Well, here's a brief trailer for Borderlands, which clearly wishes to present the player with a relatively unique setting. We see a vast, bleak and yet distinctly futuristic wasteland and after watching, we understand why the game is called "Borderlands." Can it compete with the best of the best in this genre? We only catch a quick glimpse of the gameplay in this preview video, but based on the information and other media we've seen, we'd say it has a darn good chance.
