Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Gets a Date

2K Games and Gearbox Software announced on Thursday the release date for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel as October 14, 2014 in the United States and October 17, 2014 internationally. The game will arrive on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.

Unlike Borderlands and Borderlands 2, this third "Pre-Sequel" installment will take place on Pandora's moon, meaning gamers will have to deal with low gravity. This game, which has a story set between the two already published, will include oxygen-propelled jetpacks, new weapons, enemies, vehicles, and moon environments. There will also be all-new character classes with "unique" skill trees.

"Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel continues the franchise's tradition of industry-leading co-op allowing friends to play together locally via split-screen as well as online with drop-in-drop-out capabilities," states the PR. "With co-op being as seamless as ever, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel remains accessible for gamers and their friends to play alone or together in a variety of configurations."

2K Games reports that customers who pre-purchase The Pre-Sequel will receive the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit bonus content. This content pack takes place in an old Dahl facility on Pandora's moon, and introduces players to a former (and crazy) Dahl military recruiter named TR4-NU. This content pack will include "zero-atmosphere combat against the fiercest enemies Pandora's moon has to offer," and will reward players with unique in-game loot.

    Would rather see BL3 and find out who the 5th and possibly 6th Sirens are supposed to be and how their siren power works.
  • Platinum Era
    This should have been an expansion

    A tree day delay for international release, i'm sure the pirates will love that excuse and get pirating as well as the regular Joe will have tree days to learn how to pirate while waiting...

    Don't blame the customers for piracy all the time will you!

    Like true 2K Games fashion they already siphoned off content via a pre-order.

    I love borderlands more than most and I will be skipping this and waiting for 3 using unreal 4 engine (hopefully).
