Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel coming in October
Gamers who pre-order will gain access to bonus content
2K and Gearbox Software have announced that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, the next standalone game in the Borderlands franchise, will be available in North America on October 14, 2014, and internationally on October 17, 2014.
Currently in co-development with Gearbox Software and 2K Australia, The Pre-Sequel offers gravity-bending gameplay with oxygen-propelled jetpacks, as well as new weapons, enemies, vehicles, and moon environments. Playing as four all-new character classes with unique skill trees, gamers will contribute to the rise of Handsome Jack and experience his origin story as he transforms into the tyrant in Borderlands 2.
Gamers who pre-order will gain access to the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit bonus content. Taking place in an old Dahl facility on Pandora’s moon, players will meet TR4-NU, who once was one of Dahl’s military recruiters until he went crazy. TR4-NU is now hosting the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit and giving loot to those who succeed against the moon’s toughest enemies.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be available for Xbox 360, PS3, and Windows PC.
