2K Games Switching To Steamworks For Online Play, Others Discontinued

by Rainier on April 22, 2014 @ 5:54 p.m. PDT

Borderlands is an extraordinary cooperative experience, allowing for multiple players to share the same game experience simultaneously online. Players can freely join or leave each other's games at anytime, or choose to play in the full single-player mode. Borderlands features life-like character animations, impressive real-time physics, and customizable vehicles.

Beginning May 31, 2014, Borderlands 1 and select tiles from the Civilization catalogs will temporarily go offline while service is transitioned to Steamworks. During the transition, players will experience interruption of several features, including online play, matchmaking and voiceover Internet protocol (VOIP). Players will not experience interruptions to offline play.

The list of 2K titles currently slated for online migration includes:

  • Borderlands
  • Civilization III
  • Civilization III: Conquests
  • Civilization III: Play the World
  • Civilization IV
  • Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword
  • Civilization IV: Colonization
  • Civilization IV: Warlords

Additionally, 2K will discontinue online service functionality for a number of our legacy titles that use GameSpy. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
