Game Overview

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is a first-person shooter that is being developed by 2K Australia and being released on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. It is set in between the events of Borderlands and Borderlands 2, and is actually the fourth game with the Borderlands name.

Taking place in between the first game and its sequel, The Pre-Sequel will tell the story of Handsome Jack before he became the evil villain he is known for in Borderlands 2. You play as one of four characters that are actually Handsome Jack's henchmen, helping him to take over the Hyperion moonbase.

@darkneal - Calm down, this is just a
glorified Borderlands 2 expansion. This
didn't get the same budget or marketing
as a major Borderlands release.

will likely bring this game with all DLC
to 8th gen consoles later on as well.

Borderlands - 5.5million sales,
Borderlands 2 - 5.5million sales,
Borderlands Prequel - not even 1 million
sales! Oh dear, this is not protecting
an ip, this is hurting it. An absolute
disaster which, thanks to the troubles
of Assassin's Creed et all on the new
gen has been luckilly overlooked in the
gaming press. Doesn't help take 2
interactive balence the books though..

@darkneal - Their biggest concern is
protecting the IP.

They could have
sold more units on PS4 and X1. But they
don't want this to be the debut of
Borderlands on 8th gen platforms.
Borderlands 3 will likely be a 8th gen

Hmm, not a disaster but not a patch on
Borderlands 2's figures...admire their
decision to keep it last gen but prob
not the smartest move in the end.
