Borderlands 2 and The Haunted: Hell’s Reach are Coming to OnLive

As you can see from the coming soon wall of the OnLive booth at Eurogamer Expo 2011 on the picture below, Borderlands 2 and The Haunted: Hell’s Reach are games that OnLive failed to mention in their coming soon games list from the OnLive UK launch.

Borderlands 2

Publisher 2K Games and big OnLive supporter Gearbox Software are bringing Borderlands 2 to OnLive.

In Borderlands 2 don’t expect just a couple bazillion more guns this time around. Combining invention and evolution, Borderlands 2 features all-new characters, skills, environments, enemies, weapons and equipment, which come together in an ambitiously crafted story. Players will reveal secrets, and escalate mysteries of the Borderlands universe as they adventure across the unexplored new areas of Pandora.

Environments will be more diverse and enemies will be smarter, plus Gearbox is planning an improved mission system, capable of delivering a better story.

The original cell-shaded art style has been carried over as is.

The Haunted: Hell’s Reach

Publisher THQ is bringing The Haunted: Hell’s Reach to OnLive. The Haunted: Hell’s Reach is a PC game that is set to be released for PC’s on October 25, 2011.

Here are some details on the game from the official Hell’s Reach website:
The Haunted is a fast paced thirdperson action horror game that focuses on delivering an intense multiplayer experience. Your goal is to liberate cursed places and survive the assault from the minions of hell. The game features several multiplayer modes such as coop-survival, demons vs. humans and demonizer. The Unreal Engine 3 powered graphics lay a perfect tone for the gameplay.

Playing as human is action focused survival gameplay with a huge arsenal of weapons and melee attacks, total freedom in movement and brutal, intense combat. The minions of hell come in many variations and approach from everywhere to give you the feeling of a real fight for your life. There is no place to hide, together or alone. In addition to that, watch out for dangerous traps and environmental hazards. Some multiplayer modes can have players taking control of vicious demon masters. Here you can spawn monsters and play them by yourself, or place traps and trigger the environmental hazards to create a unpredictable threat for the humans. The monsters are harrowing and locations feature a classic horror atmosphere with a remarkable western-gothic style.

Solo Mode: The singleplayer mode pits one human against the forces of evil.

Coop Mode: Up to 4 human players have to make a stand against the undead. Send as much as possible back to hell and redeem the souls of fallen comrades.

Battle Mode: 4 Human players against 4 demons.

Demonizer: Similar to coop, but each dead human will turn into a demon until no one is left.
As for if it will be released for OnLive on October 25th, it is still up in the air. We will keep you updated.
