So there it is in all it's not cel-shaded glory. The new rendering technique that Gearbox has dubbed the four player co-op game Borerlands is called "Concept Art Rendering Technique." It doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but it sure is easy on the eyes.
We've covered it in detail in a previous posts, one in which we erroneously called it cell shaded, but this is a style and technique we can really get behind. This was changed over from a previous, more realistic, style that while it didn't look bad - it didn't really stand out. I really can't wait till we can see the new version in motion.
