Borderlands 2 ON 2011 MBP. how well can i run it?


thats the link to the system requirements and recommended for borderlands 2 coming out in a few months. I want to buy it for pc but want to make sure i can run it well on my mbp before i waste the $60.

i have the 2011 mbp 15" 8gb ram, quadcore, radeon hd6750m.

someone please help me to figure out how well i will be able to run this.

(will be using bootcamp)

Borderlands 2 system requirements will be similar to the first game, since itís built on the same game engine ó Unreal Engine 3. Borderlands 2 will feature the same cell-shaded style, which isnít as requiring as the more common ďrealisticĒ style. However, itís been confirmed that the game will feature improved visuals compared to its predecessor, despite being built on the same engine. Safe to say, if your PC ran the first Borderlands game, thereís a big change itíll run Borderlands 2 just fine, if not better.
From the article you posted, the game will run very good.

It seems that games run better and better every year Mass Effect3 runs better than Mass Effect 1, etc ..

Wanna bump this thread. I have _almost_ the same machine but mine is a 15" early 2011 mbpro with 16GB RAM and the hi-res, 1680x1050 screen. How bad is 35 FPS??? Maybe I should fire up RAGE again and see...
