Borderlands 2 Demoed on a Tegra 3 Tablet


With the advent of NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor, developers have been challenged to create games one unimaginable for both phones and tablets. We’ve already got an impressive library of 3D Tegra games to play and it looks like another will be added to the fold. Borderlands developer Gearbox was caught showing off the series’ second entry on a Tegra 3 tablet.

Borderlands, a console and PC RPG FPS, uses cel-shaded 3D graphics instead of completely raw polygonal 3D models. While this may ease the strain on a GPU, it’s still a visually impressive game and we’re definitely impressed that it’s being adapted to Tegra 3. A console quality game on Tegra 3 tablets should lead the way to even more AAA titles making their way to Android.

While we can’t be certain this game is coming out right around the time that the console and PC versions are, we at least know that it’s coming – why else would they be testing it on Android? Whatever the case is, I’m extremely excited for this particular game’s release (with its predecessor being one of my favorite co-op shooters) and I hope more developers follow-suit where possible.

[Note]: Video above is not of the game running on the tablet. -Further clarification: this is not running on the tablet at all. This is the console version running on a development unit that was being shown off to certain members of the press. This is in no way, shape or form indicative of what the tablet version may bring. The video is just to show you what Borderlands 2 is all about.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  5. well, if the video you post meant to be as a video evidence of the game playing on Tegra, i think you’re wrong. i saw this one a while ago & it was showing off the new boarderland for the consoles, no mention of it being tested on a tablet at that moment.
