The new Borderlands game, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, will be released for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on 17 October 2014.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes players to Pandora’s moon, where they will take on their foes in “gravity-bending gunfights in zero-atmosphere environments” with an array of new weaponry. Gamers will also be able to play as one of four new characters.
“Of course, it wouldn’t be a Borderlands game without gazillions of new guns – you’ll shoot with laser guns, the type that ‘pew pew’ like in Star Wars, and the type that shoot continuous beams like in Ghostbusters. You’ll also freeze bandits in their place and shatter them into hundreds of bloody pieces using an array of Cryo weapons,” stated 2K.
As you are on a moon with no atmosphere, Oxygen is now a precious commodity, and will be a lootable resource – just like ammo – in the new game.
To mark the occasion, 2K has put together a release-trailer-slash-music-video to get fans excited.
