Overall, from the footage I have seen of the game (live stream, youtube, etc), yes it is fairly like Borderlands in the open world sense.

However, one cannot really compare the two gameplay wise. This is due to various differences (mainly one being an FPS and other being TPS). Viewing angles change game play drastically for both tactical and unconventional aspects of any shooter game. I would say if you enjoy third person action-oriented shooter games and borderlands, you will highly likely enjoy this game.

I always describe this games as MMO-Borderlands to my friends and they get excited everytime :)

I hope not. Borderlands is fun with friends but massively overrated as a game series. That style of gameplay would not keep me engaged in an MMO very long.

i think the amount of weapons could be on par with BL2 but not sure if its going to be THAT many

From my impression, its customization where Defiance is very strong.

I say yes and no. It is like Borderlands 2 but there is so much more to do in Defiance. BL 2 is just a single or CO-OP questing game. Defiance is Battlegrounds PvP,CO-OP, Shadow War OWPvP,Single player questing and you can Mod your guns.
