As befits the home of the National Videogame Museum, several game developers are headquartered in North Texas. Two of the most notable, id Software (Richardson) and Gearbox Software (Frisco), have just released high-profile new video games.

Gearbox, the studio behind the Borderlands series, released Battleborn earlier this month. Here’s the description from Gearbox:

A tremendous band of badass heroes fight to protect the universe’s very last star from a mysterious evil in this next-gen shooter by the creators of Borderlands. To defend it, you’ll need to utilize every type of character and weapon you’ve ever imagined — from cyborg hawkmen to samurai vampires to mini-gun wielding man-mountains. Slash and parry, run and gun, cast and dash, or simply obliterate foes all while building and growing your personal team of heroes. Choose your hero and fight alone or co-operatively alongside friends in story missions, or battle against them in fast-paced competitive multiplayer matches.

Meanwhile, id Software’s Dooma reboot of the legendary first-person-shooter series, is out today. Here’s the official description:

Anyway, support local businesses and spend some time this week shooting demons on Mars.
