Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Now Open For Pre-Orders!


Only recently announced and much to the surprise to the fans of this exciting franchise, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is not that far away! With a release window of Q3 2014, get ready to return to the Vault! Unce! Unce! Unce! Unce!


BORDERLANDS: THE PRE-SEQUEL

PlayStation®3 Xbox360™ PC [First Person RPG Shooter]

Taking place immediately after the events of the first game and right before Borderlands 2, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes this immensely popular series into new yet familiar ground. 

Players familiar with Borderlands lore will immediately recognize the giant H-shaped Hyperion base which orbits the moon of Pandora; this is where the frenetic loot-crazed multiplayer action will take place!

For the first time ever, Borderlands is set in space, and as such, new gameplay mechanics appear revitalizing a familiar formula to new literal heights. Reveal so far are low gravity environments and an emphasis on vertical traversal; by using an oxygen tank, double jump, float, and even "ground pound" unsuspecting enemies for massive mayhem! 

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will tell the tale of Handsome Jack's inevitable corruption; the narrative progresses through missions that highlight Jack's change of morals, setting up the character that we've all come to love/hate in Borderlands 2. As for Vault Hunters, 4 previous NPCs will now be playable; all of them have made memorable appearances at least once in the series:

Athena The Gladiator: 

Defected "top operative" of the Crimson Lances turned mercenary from The Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC.

Wilhelm The Enforcer:

Pre-Robot form - a Hyperion engineer and bodyguard to Handsome Jack of Borderlands 2.

Nisha The Lawbringer:

A really bad, bad person, Sheriff of Lynchwood and lover of Handsome Jack from Borderlands 2.

Claptrap The Fragtrap:

The Interplanetary Ninja Assassin Claptrap, militarized by Hyperion with less wubs and more unce.
