Borderlands 2 short film coming this week

Gearbox Software to release film set inside the world of first-person shooter later this week.

A Borderlands 2 short film will release this week, developer Gearbox Software has announced.

The developer announced the news on Twitter, sharing a teaser image (at right) as well.

Gearbox Software marketing manager Adam Fletcher clarified that this project is separate from the student-produced animated short in development at the Academy of Art University.

Production on that film is set to be completed by the end of 2013.

Borderlands 2 has shipped 7 million copies to date. The game will launch for PlayStation Vita in 2014.

Short films can often succeed better than feature films, so I like this. Cinematics in games are short and enticing and people expect/demand/dream of the same thing whenever a game based movie is made, but it's incredibly hard to achieve that.

@randomkidlol Couple weeks ago you could have got it all for £15 in the steam sale. So look out for that.. and if you're a consoles gamer? Change to PC.
