There have been many rumors going around about the possibility of another Borderland game, and when Gearbox Studio Head Randy Pitchford was asked, his response was pretty straight forward. “We are currently not working on Borderlands 3”. That is true, however what he didn’t mention, or comment on that another studio (2K Austrailia) was working on another Borderlands title. The Pre-Sequel will be sending four new vault hunters into space to battle low gravity, zero atmosphere, and raving, psychotic astronauts.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is coming and will take place between Borderlands and Borderlands 2. The game is being developed by 2K Australia. General Manager Tony Lawrence did make it well know that this will in no way be a depiction of what Borderland 3 will be in the future, which would be developed for Next Gen consoles and will be built on a brand new engine. The Pre-Sequel was built using the Borderlands 2 engine and will be released on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 only.
The new game will bring us four new vault hunters. Two new female characters, Wilhelm, the robot man boss from Borderlands 2 and “FragTrap”. That right, we finally get to play as one of the clap traps! Check out the gameplay demo below to catch a first glimps of the upcoming game.
There has been no release date set for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
