Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Announced + Gameplay Footage

BorderlandsThePreSequel

Gearbox Software officially announces Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel which will take place on Pandora’s moon! It is currently being co-developed by Gearbox Software and 2K Australia and will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC coming out later this fall!

“Set between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, you’ll play as four all-new character classes fighting alongside Handsome Jack, witnessing his transformation into the ruthless tyrant you loved to hate in Borderlands 2, and assisting with the rise of the Hyperion Corporation. The signature shoot ‘n’ loot gameplay of the Borderlands series expands with the addition of low-gravity and oxygen-powered jetpack combat, the icy ‘Cryo’ elemental damage type, the deadly laser weapon class, and new vehicles to help you explore the diverse lunar landscape.

The four new playable character classes are all familiar faces from the Borderlands universe: Athena the Gladiator (The Secret Armory of General Knoxx), Wilhelm the Enforcer (the robotic badass of Borderlands 2), Nisha the Lawbringer (The Sheriff of Lynchwood in Borderlands 2), and yes, even Claptrap the Fragtrap (from just about everywhere… unfortunately).”

Check out the video below for a developer overview with pre alpha gameplay footage!
