Guildhall grads make good

PAX Gearbox boothIt’s PAX Day #3, and the attendees are showing no signs of slowing down! It’s always so wonderful seeing our local industry friends out at a show that is so far from the Lone Star State, and Gearbox Software is certainly a good friend of The Guildhall at SMU.

Gearbox is collaborating with a great studio called 2K this year at PAX, showcasing the upcoming Borderlands 2 Headhunter Pack add-on: T.K. Baha’s Bloody Harvest. Players are competing to take down the boss, and the attendee with the fastest time will be flown out to Gearbox on September 14 to compete against the Gearbox Software team at their Community Day in Dallas, Texas.

PAX Borderlands 2 signageDroves of Guildhall alumni have worked on successful Gearbox titles such as Borderlands, the Brothers in Arms titles, Borderlands 2, and Aliens: Colonial Marines. We are so excited to see what’s next for the studio and for our alumni who are developing the next great titles.
