Borderlands 2 Prequel Announced


It was recently leaked by that Gearbox with the help of 2K Australia are working on a Borderlands 2 prequel for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The game will take place on Pandora’s moon of Elpis and will chronologically be set between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, technically making it a “presequel”.

Surprisingly, none of the announced four playable characters are the characters from Borderlands or Borderlands 2. Instead you take on the role of one of a younger Handsome Jack’s lieutenant’s as he rises to power. One of the playable characters is someone fans of the series will recognize as a previous boss, Wilhelm, The Enforcer. The other three playable characters are Athena, The Gladiator, Nisha, The Lawbringer, and Fragtrap.

No exact release date is set but it is supposed to be sometime before the end of 2014. Hopefully it will come out around the same time as Tell Tale Games “Tales From The Borderlands” and we will have a whole another couple hundred hours of vault hunting to do.

    I loved Borderlands 1, its was basically a 1st person dungeon crawler without the dungeons.

    Borderlands 2 took its self far too seriously while claiming it wasnt, it was too long and had silly large areas and heavy difficulty spikes… that flying city was badass though…

    I hope the next one will more more like the third one…. and have a linux client.

    • I loved Borderlands 2. The writing was excellent and I never felt like the game was too long. I must have beaten Borderlands 2 10 times. I could just start a new game with friends and we would play through over and over. Can’t wait for a new Borderlands.

    Loved both BL1& 2. A little disappointed that it’s not going to have. Next gem release. That’s just stupid.

    • They have most likely been working on this in secret for years so that is why it isn’t on next-gen. At least that leaves a Borderlands 3 possibility for next-gen since this is just a pre-sequel.

    @shadow Pandora
    I get that. And as gearbox said the majority of BL fans don’t have next gen consoles. It’s just a drag because I just got the ps4 and have no desire to buy games for my older consoles. I will, because BL1&2 are probably my all time favourite title, but only grudgingly. There are not enough next gen titles as it is. They could have dine both like COD and Titan fall
