Borderlands Movie Sneak Peek: From Game to Legendary Cinema

The Making of a LEGEND

Partnering with Movement and the fictitious sports venture Lift, IGN’s flagship event, IGN Live 2024, was fundamentally a forward-facing event, in which the auguries of brand-new legends and the cineverse expansion of another were inextricably interconnected, as material was announced and interviews were conducted to lay the groundwork for what will come next. From the aquatic enclaves of Alien: Rogue Incursion to the multi-platform cineverse of Borderlands, each revelation and Q&A was just a step in the process of creating the cultural products for the youths of today.

What Defines a Legend?

At its most basic, the legend is a tribute to mastery and ingenuity – a powerful reminder of the magic of storytelling itself, whether it’s in a game, a series, or a film, whether you experience it alone or alongside a community. It is born in those moments we share, in that surge of excitement, in that feeling of being transported to a new kind of reality, and ultimately into a new world of play.

IGN Live 2020 has not just revealed what’s next, it’s also shown us what it takes to become a legend. Three days of revelations and surprises have propelled us to the forefront of a new era, where more legends are just beginning.
