Default Borderlands... with zombies! First expansion announced

Yes, another Borderlands thread... sorry to those who don't have it yet...

How can a FPS these days be well done with no zombies???

"Today 2K Games announced that the upcoming FPS-RPG hybrid game Borderlands from developer Gearbox Software will explore that them in the first of several planned downloadable expansions to the game.

The expansion is called The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned"

Borderlands goes to the zombies for first downloadable expansion

Now that should be awsome.... I wonder how many cell-shaded zombies can be shown in that engine at a time? It would be freakin' awsome if they could have larger numbers of zombies attacking all at once, although im not sure if the game can handle it. I mean, I've never seen more than 20 or so NPCs on screen at once, so i guess we'll find out.

I'll share one of my dreams with the the HWC community...

For a long time... on of the best video games i was hoping for was: A fps/rpg (like Borderlands) post apocalyptic/zombie game. This expansion may be pretty close to what i want.
