Borderlands Legends is an isometric strategy game due October 31

Gaming is in its golden age, and big and small players alike are maneuvering like kings and queens in A Game of Thrones. Register now for our GamesBeat 2015 event, Oct. 12-Oct.13, where we'll explore strategies in the new world of gaming.

We reported earlier this week about an ad that revealed Borderlands Legends for iPhone and iPad. It turns out that the game isn’t a port of the original. It’s a strategy game with action-role-playing elements.

Publisher 2K Games will release the title on October 31 on iPhone and iPad for $4.99 and $6.99, respectively.

The game follows the original four characters from Borderlands, but instead of shooting in first-person, they’re strategically shooting from an isometric perspective. That is much friendlier to touchscreen controls.¬†Borderlands Legends has randomized missions, difficulty scaling, and unlimited character leveling.

Here’s a look at the game in action:

The game is out in a week, so we should have more info soon, but as of right now, it’s looking kind of like a Jagged Alliance game on Pandora. Yes, please.
