2K has announced the games it will be showcasing in Leipzig this week at the Games Convention 2007. While they are bringing their usual lineup of sports titles, they are also debuting a completely new franchise. Borderlands
is a new sci-fi action title brought to you by Gearbox software. It reminds me a little bit of Mad Max, so that could be a good thing... or a pretty bad thing. 2K is also bringing along Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution
, which will be the debut of the popular Civilization series on consoles and handheld systems. Check out more on these games here
