Loot up! The next Borderlands installment arrives this October, only its not a sequel… its not a prequel… IT’S A PRE-SEQUEL! Borderlands the pre-sequel follows four characters as they team up with a “morally good” Handsome Jack at the start of the game. Many might disregard the game since it doesn’t have a “3” in the title, but expect it to come with the same size, scope, and fun as previous installments. Familiar characters from Borderlands 2 take center stage, but come with all new classes bringing new ways to fight your way through Pandora’s moons: Athena “The Gladiator”, Wilhelm “The Enforcer”, Nisha “The Lawbringer”, and Claptrap “The Fragtrap”. Yes, you read that correctly. A Claptrap is a fully playable character, packing some serious fire power and the same offbeat humor the claptraps are know for.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel releases October 16th for Australia, 14th for North America, and 17th for Europe for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
