Bloodthirsty bandits. Vicious monsters. Tons of loot. Lock, Load and face the madness. Gearbox Software's acclaimed sci-fi hit comes to the Mac. Borderlands is a unique hybrid of first person shooter and role-playing game with a super sharp visual style and a compelling 4 player co-op mode.

Planet Pandora is a sparsely populated wasteland where the rule of law gets rewritten daily in the smoke of the last gun battle. Civilization consists of small outposts on the fringe of human influence, in an area called the Borderlands. Pandora's one tourist attraction is a mythical Vault supposedly packed with fantastic riches.

Fortune hunters, corrupt corporate mercenaries and lowlife hoodlums roam the landscape, searching under every grain of sand for the treasure. Since most intelligent life on Pandora has the occupation of Vault Hunter, society has gone to hell - making the outposts and outback areas more than just a little dangerous.
  • Unique hybrid role playing shooter that combines frantic first-person shooting action with accessible role-playing character progression.
  • Super sharp graphics style gives Borderlands a unique comic book come-to-life look.
  • Co-op Frenzy – drop in and out with up to 4 player co-operative for a maniacal multiplayer experience
  • Millions of randomly generated guns! Choose your weapon from rocket-launching shotguns, enemy-torching revolvers, and tons more.
  • Huge single-player game with four playable characters and endless replayability.

  1. Great, addicting.
    by Zach Hunter, USA - May 28th 2017

    If you haven't played Borderlands, at least get and play it just so you understand what's happening in Borderlands 2. It's worth it!

  2. BL1 is the best
    by DV_101, USA - Sep 18th 2016

    In my opinino this game is the best of the series. Has the best balance between story and side missions, great gun play and the system that allows you to level up a gun skill only by using that gun in my opinion should have never left the series.

  4. Great on mac mini 2013
    by mikker, United Kingdom - Jan 26th 2015

    Plays well and fast on 2013 mac mini. Particularly like the lack of STEAM. I will only buy the later versions when they become available without STEAM.
    Excellent game have only played for a few hours but there is enough to keep me playing for quite a while.

  5. Ótimo
    by Henrique Linhares, Brazil - Jun 4th 2014

    Excelente jogo de tiro, muitas armas e missões. O gráfico é ótimo e a jogabilidade também! Pra passar o tempo atirando e curtido, não tem jogo melhor! Recomendo.

    [Excellent shooter, many weapons and missions. The graphic is great and the gameplay too! To pass the time shooting and tanned, no game better! I recommend.]

  6. Helluva Game
    by SnarkyBear, USA - Apr 3rd 2014

    I am not much of a game player, but I have put more hours int this game than any other-even more than Half-Life 2 (and its two episodes). Borderlands is addicting in much the way Diablo 2 was, only Borderlands allows the ability to shoot your enemy in the face. BooYAA!

  11. A great game
    by markthedrummer, - Apr 27th 2013

    This game has a lovely graphic visual style and immersive gameplay. It runs really well on my 2008 Imac and even better than ever under 10.8.3

    A bazillion guns and an imaginatively realised world. A great co op game too

  12. High Expectations
    by gihaddd, USA - Apr 11th 2012

    I wish i hadn't gone in to this game with such high expectations, for one with the graphics dumbed down a bit the game runs smooth on my mid 09 2.53ghz 9400m mbp, second I expected this to be an open world game, but everything is split into areas, third the weapons and vehicles are awesome but there really isn't much interaction with npcs other than the ones you have to kill. I found this game to be more frustrating than fun, Some of the maps you have to traverse just to fight a boss is ridiculous, than when you kill the boss you have to run all the way back through waves of npcs you just killed to the start of the map, this is the same with quests and looting. I also hate the fact that you have to switch weapons every couple of missions to find whats better, every time I found a gun that I liked there was always something a little better. trust me, looting was fun for a while than you start to realize how tedious it really is.

  13. Good Job 2K
    by David Cramer, USA - Dec 21st 2011

    As usual, 2K made a phenomenal game. It's hard to find those popular console games, or even the popular PC games playable for Mac. This is definitely one of the better ones (Although I wish it was on steam...). BUT to those who complain about using a Magic Mouse...... obviously you shouldn't use that for any videogame, because it's not meant for videogames, its meant for media purposes, like every mac is, mice cost 10 dollars at target. Boom. Just blew your mind. Buy this game! 2K is a great company and this is an amazing game, especially to play with friends!

  15. You better have some power...
    by Jason Bowen, USA - Jun 25th 2011

    I have a MBP 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo with the 512Mb NVidia discrete card and 8Gb DDR3 RAM and I have to turn all the graphic details down and the resolution down pretty far to get decent frame rates. But the game itself is awesome. I wonder how it would have played through Boot Camp?
