Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel  



Handsome Jack gives out hot tips for surviving on Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's moon


4:15 PM on 07.03.2014



Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is only about three months from release, but there is still so much more to learn about it. Borderlands 2 antagonist Handsome Jack is here in a video previously exclusive to E3 attendees, to show off the new features to be found on Elpis, Pandora's moon. Something about his animation is a bit uncanny valley-esque.

For those who have been following along, nothing shown in the video above is news, but it is nice to have all of the new features bundled together in an easy-to-consume package. Highlighted here are the low gravity on Elpis, the ground pound ability, Athena the Gladiator's and Wilhelm the Enforcer's action skills, oxygen kits, lasers, and cryogenic weapons. I will admit, I did get my hopes up when Jack started talking about character abilities, but we are still left mostly in the dark about what Nisha the Lawbringer and Claptrap the Fragtrap will be capable of doing.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is scheduled to launch on October 14. We are still waiting on full skill trees to play with before launch to plan out builds. Come on, 2K, get on that!

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's second piece of DLC is out December 16

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

Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns seeks to redefine MMO endgame progression

Guild Wars 2 is an ambitious project. While ArenaNet's initial offering of Guild Wars was more of a social dungeon crawler than an MMO (the company called it a CORPG, or competitive online role-playing game), the se...more

3D Realms' Bombshell returns with a tiny bit more hair

Last May I broke the news about 3D Realms' upcoming Bombshell, and the typical '90s-esque trailer was decidedly light on gameplay but generous with clichéd teaser elements. Now there's a proper trailer out to dissect ...more
