Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Officially Announced!

Get excited Borderlands fans! 2K have just announced Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and it’s being developed right here at 2K Australia. It will take place between Borderlands 1 and 2 and will explore the rise of the latter’s sadistic villain, Handsome Jack!

New laser-based and ‘Cryo’ weapons will be joining the already ridiculous lineup of weapons and you can play as one of four new characters with one being the infamous Claptrap. The game will feature quite a few new gameplay mechanics such as an Oxygen meter considering the game will take place on the moon.
