Borderlands is an original First Person Role Playing Shooter that combines the intuitive reward systems of action role playing games and the frantic-paced shooting combat of first person shooters. The game features a groundbreaking content generation system allowing for near-endless variety in weapons and item drops. Borderlands allows for four players to share the same game experience simultaneously online in co-op gameplay. Players can freely join or leave each other's games at anytime, or choose to play in the full single-player mode. These features, along with a rich and deep fiction that touches upon the mysteries buried beneath the surface of a danger-filled planet, combine to form a breakthrough experience that challenges the conventions of modern shooters.
"Valley of Death" is a custom level I made for Gearbox Software's acclaimed RPG/shooter Borderlands using the version of the Unreal 3 editor that shipped with the game. It took me roughly 6 months to make in my spare time between October 2010 and April 2011. Oasis must be installed for this map to work. It can be downloaded from the gearbox forums. Also all 4 Borderlands DLCs are required as the map uses assets from them all. To install simply extract to your Borderlands directory and use portal number 9 in Oasis to load. It can take a minute or more to load first time you run it due to the Borderlands editor being unable to 'cook' the content and a cache needing to be built...just be patient.
