Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel took a breath of fresh air at E3


1:30 PM on 07.07.2014



In this nearly 15-minute demonstration of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel at E3, 2K and Gearbox show off how the game's oxygen mechanic works. Running low? Replenishment is just a geyser or maybe an enemy away.

The downside to The Pre-Sequel's lack of air is the constant need to keep your supply full. The upside is the incredible verticality it adds. Platforming in Borderlands has never looked so fun.

As an added bonus, we get to see what one of Wilhelm's capstone abilities is. Called the Vengeance Cannon, it activates a laser beam-shooting artillery once your health drops below a certain threshold. Unfortunately, it's never used in the video, but it sounds like it would just absolutely wreck everyone around.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's Jack the Doppelganger is too sexy for his shirt

I frown on the idea that additional Vault Hunters are being offered for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's season pass in place of story DLC (rather than in addition to it, as Gaige the Mechromancer and Krieg the Psycho were in B...more

A free roguelike with music by Banjo-Kazooie's Grant Kirkhope? Yes, please!

I'm struggling to stop playing The Enchanted Cave 2 for long enough to tell you about it. Unassuming name and overabundance of roguelikes aside, this browser-based game is terrific. You delve into a cavern in search of gold, ...more
