2K and Gearbox Software announced today that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will available in the UK on 17th October, 2014. We can also confirm the US date, which is the 14th October.
Currently in co-development with Gearbox Software and 2K Australia, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is set in between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, and brings low-gravity shoot ‘n’ loot mayhem to Pandora’s moon for the first time.
Additionally, those who pre-order the game through participating retailers will receive the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit bonus content, which features zero-atmosphere combat against the worst enemies Pandora’s moon has to offer, and rewards players with unique in-game loot.
“The teams at Gearbox and 2K Australia have combined the best talent from both studios to create a Borderlands experience that we know fans are going to love,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “For those that haven’t played the critically acclaimed franchise, there’s never been a better time to jump in than with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.”
"It’s incredibly exciting that an all-new Borderlands experience is as close as this October," added Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software. "If you’ve played any of the Borderlands games or if you have a friend who hasn’t yet, the opportunity to blast off as a new set of playable characters in a whole new campaign experience, including shooting and looting on the moon, is just around the corner."
"We are huge fans of the Borderlands franchise and are thrilled to have this opportunity to show what we can bring to the Borderlands universe," concluded Tony Lawrence, general manager of 2K Australia. "We can’t wait for fans to play as Athena, Wilhelm, Nisha and Claptrap and experience the new low-gravity gunplay with awesome new guns to freeze and smash enemies, all in the name of Handsome Jack."
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is in development for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Check out the latest trailer below:
