Yesterday, Gearbox Software and 2K Australia released a new 9 1/2 minute trailer for their upcoming title, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! The quirky cell-shaded game is due out on October 14 in the US. It will be available on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC, making it a strictly last-generation title.
Narrated by the beloved Sir Hammerlock and always-yelling Mister Torgue, the extended trailer gives fans a preview of some of the new and returning features coming up. Most notable of the new features is the inclusion of low-gravity physics, new enemies to massacre, even more weapons to choose from, Oxygen (Oz), “butt-stomps,” and the Grinder, which chews up your terrible old items and spits out better ones.
Between hilarious escapades (and LASER SHOTGUNS!) and decimating every enemy on Pandora’s moon, there are four new playable characters to choose from:
- Claptrap the Fragtrap
- Athena the Gladiator
- Wilhelm the Enforcer
- Nisha the Lawbringer
The PCs are all characters from previous Borderlands titles and their expansions. Many of your favorite NPC characters are also returning such as Roland, Lilith, and Moxxi, along with some new faces like Janey Springs and Nurse Nina.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! looks as if it’s shaping up to be just as much fun – maybe even more – than the first two titles. Are you excited for the next installment of the Borderlands franchise? Let us know in the comments below, or on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+!
