I'm surprised that this hasn't been mentioned on the forums yet, it's the new IP from the guys at Gearbox and I've got to admit it's looking pretty cool.

 

Trailer here :

Here's a nice interview with the head of Gearbox about the game and also show's off some gamplay.

Also a little hands on preview here :

I'm really looking forward to this, the art style is looking really nice ( cell shaded ), there are somewhere in the region of 3,000,000 different weapon variations ( all procedurally generated ), a skill tree levelling system and 4 player co-op!

 

Roll on the Autumn! :D

I was just coming to post about this

 

It actually has 3,166,880 guns :P .

 

Down from the 87 Bazillion Guns in the trailer.

 

Really looking forward to it, just not a fan of online co-op.

You just need the right group of people, from the sounds of things going co-op in a random group could lead to problems. There doesn't seem to be any system in place with regards to loot distribution ( something along the lines of rolling a'la WoW would fix that problem ).

 

I'll be picking this up, i'm always up for some co-op fun and games!

Aggghhhhhhh, it's like busses. Nothing good for ages then we get this, forza3 and modern warfare.

 

This looks brilliant by the way.

they've just announced the first wave of dlc for the game as well...yep you guessed it...ZOMBIES!

 

To be fair this dlc does look pretty good; new environments, enemies and loot drops!

agreed Shill, just too many AAA titles coming out ( seems to be the norm around this time of year though ).
