Id Software is still deathly afraid of color. Tech 5 looks very interesting though.

Why does this game remind me of Borderlands?

it looks like borderlands because alot of the same people that made borderlands is also working on the team that's developing the game. I wouldn't be suprised if 2k didn't have more to do with this game than has not been announced thus far. I don't know but yes i love the art style, with borderlands i was abit skeptic about it at first but the new art style worked WELL!!! I just hope this game can come out sooner as it can, but with the whole desert apacolypse ideal does really sorta kinda rip off borderlands because the artistic style of EVERYTHING in this game just reminds you or a mirrored image of borderlands inwhich i'm fine because i loved borderlands!!! I just HATED the Mad Moxi add on because it's SO HARD to do all those tournaments alone being i've no friends on my psn that have the game or had it and already sold it. So i'm kinda stranded cuz its impossible almost to even beat the 3 smaller mad moxii tournaments just to get to the big ones, so yea... i look forward to this greatly and the rest of the AWESOME ZOMBIE GAMES AWAITING THIS YEAR!! aka: dead rising 2/Splatterhouse/etc. I LOVE zombie games and borderlands i wish would deliver on some more supernatural add on expansion(like) content that involves even vampires or anything that could make the game that MUCH more great.

Maybe a science lab fails to contain a bio chemical and all the people are exposed to it and turn into super natural vampires or whatever, all in all i NEVER want to see a mad moxxi type DLC EVER AGAIN, i'm so glad they went back to the roots with the secret army of general knoxx which goes back on the same page of them keeping it original and i hope they keep it original for aslong as the keep adding add on content, no more stupid tournaments PLZ!! sorry this was off topic for this game but the two games are SO similiar i couldn't help but to explain some faults/defaults from the game rage resembles a TON. I have no problem like i said with rage using almost identical artistic/gameplay/etc becaues i think it's a great step into makeng games look more fun to play, u dont' need everyting looking extra real in everygame, and i respect games like this going the distance just to show how great the games can still be with them not looking truue to life and looking cartoonish like. all i gota say!!

this game does look a lot like borderlands but even though borderlands was a great game i think that this will be much better

@ dynamite_gamez7 You know these are the same guys that called a game "Doom" and eh..I think I made my point.

I would love to see a youtube video of everyone comparing this UNRELEASED game to boarderlands and fallout, getting smacked in the face with a giant wet fish.

Umm...the title is a bit too generic...they could name it...i don't know but you get the idea..

Hm, the game looks good but.... 2011? Why? D:

looks like a combo of the overall setting of borderlands only more post apoc then just desert, with the free roam of fallout 3 and the gunplay of doom which in my opinion could truly work

borderlands + fallout 3 = rage

@Thatguythatuno Wow, you really should have hit up a dictionary before calling someone else a dumb **** for using a word you'd never heard. --something tells me the conversations you and your friends have aren't very deep. You pretty much made a fool of yourself. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Id,_ego,_and_super-ego#Id

With the plethora of recent Post Apoc games its difficult to look at a desert wasteland and call the concept original, but this is id Software were talking about - we won't call the next 10 space marine games a Doom rip off, it's just a reoccurring theme, the more i see the more interesting it gets, people have forgotten the heights of perfection games like Quake and Quake 2 reached - if your history of FPS games starts with Metal of Honor and extends all the way too MW2 then you probably don't remember a time when games really could be considered an art form. I'm glad its gonna be somewhat linear, completely sandbox games like Gorilla and Fallout 3 make for impressive vistas it does hurt the overall narrative. At first I wasn't very excited about the idea of dune buggy racing just because it's been done in so many other games already, but if anyone remembers the Q1 Mod QuakeRally this could make for spectacular fun.

@Thatguythatuno actually that is how you are supposed to say it contrary to popular belief.

Looks great. I get the comparisons to Borderlands and Fallout 3 because it's a post-apoc setting, but it looks like a very, very different game than either of them. IMO it looks much better than Borderlands, and the artistic style is closer to what Fallout 3 should have looked like. It's been in development for some time, so it's certainly not a copy or an attempt to capitalize...it's just a coincidence. IdTech 5 looks fantastic.

The game is nowhere near original; The game looks very much like Borderlands and it has a few Fallout elements. Maybe i'm too old but ofcourse this game is not based on Borderlands but on Mad Max (the movie). But as a FPS lover I will buy this game is it's anything good, i hate racing in FPS games though.

"Very neat expansive wastelands"....... Sounds like an oxymoron

Perhaps they could have elaborated a little more on this new engine. All they say is that they can do more things with it. When Euphoria came out, at least they gave me a taste of what it had to offer, which is the best physics a game has ever had.

Thatguythatuno

as a mater of fact they all said it like that i hope I.d. realizes how stupid that sounds. Any way this game is looking good altough the idea now seems to have been worn out since the first time i saw it. It could still turn out pretty good.

Thatguythatuno

@00:09 did that dumb ugly b**** just say id as a word? wtf?!?

BlueMoonSurf

It has elements from Borderlands, Fallout, and Bioshock. Borderlands: vehicles, Fallout: monsters, and Bioshock: visual/story depth. In all this game looks great!!! Can't wait to see what Bethesda has to offer this time....

I don't see what the relevance of mentioning borderlands and fallout is, but borderlands and fallout are nothing alike at all.

*Excalibus Fallout looks like Borderlands, Borderlands looks like fallout, it doesn matter if people say it looks like both games, both games are pretty much the same.

"It allows us to truly make a cross platform game" hope this is true, cause i don't want another crappy done console port of a great game - which is lately a trend for PC market :/

This game looks very cool. But it still feels very very strange.

hello rage. meet borderlands. hes your longlost twin. what is up with the craze of having a wasteland for a map? please make a game that is built up of cities(like new york) where you can free run(like mirrors egde) have good online modes(like battlefield) and where you can have the freedom of GTA. Yes it will take years to make but i can wait for a game like that.

To the guy: It's "encapsulates," not "encapalates" To the girl: All Asian females have exactly the same voice, which is weird.

what does "truly" means? As in the tech5 allows them to truly make a cross platform game.
