Free Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel skins coming to Borderlands 2 on Tuesday photo
Free Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel skins coming to Borderlands 2 on Tuesday
by Darren Nakamura

Over the weekend at GaymerX, Gearbox announced that it would be releasing free Borderlands 2 customization options tomorrow. The idea behind them came from the prolific Borderlands cosplay community, so the Borderlands 2 characters would be dressed as various Pre-Sequel characters. Thanks to Gearbox forum user Norrin Radd, we have the above off-screen image of the Vault Hunters sporting the new skins and heads.

It looks like Gaige is dressed as Moxxi, Salvador as Wilhelm, Axton as Athena, Zer0 as Claptrap, and Maya as Nisha. Even though I have been following Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel fairly closely, I cannot seem to place Krieg's costume. Any ideas out there?

The new customization options should show up as a free title update, but rather than being simply granted to players, they will be included as rare loot drops. It looks like it is about time to start grinding with my Siren again. That cowboy hat is too good to pass up.

Gearbox explains why Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel isn't Borderlands 3

Developer diaries generally tend to be fairly niche videos that cover the specifics of creating a game. However, this one -- the first in a series -- takes a broad strokes approach and ends up being more interesting than mos...

Help us decipher this Battleborn tweet from Gearbox's Randy Pitchford

This morning, Gearbox Software announced its next game, Battleborn, a cooperative first-person shooter that has elements traditionally found in multiplayer online battle arenas like League of Legends. Or, put another way: Perfect. I've been in the market for a hobby-grade co-op campaign with meta-growth and choice.

Battleborn is the next big game from Gearbox Software, and, much like the developer's Borderlands series, it's looking to put a unique spin on the first-person shooter.

Billed a "hero-shooter" by Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford, the title infuses MOBA elements into its narrative-driven co-op and competitive multiplayer in place of Borderlands' hallmark loot-heavy RPG flare. The story, penned by former Destructoid editor Aaron Linde, is set in the distant future in a "science fantasy" universe on the brink of destruction.

Battleborn is slated to release sometime during Take-Two Interactive’s upcoming fiscal year ending March 31, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Handsome Jack loves his own voice in this Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel trailer

As Handsome Jack was preparing for his role in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, he caught a glimpse of the future that was in store for him. He didn't like that very much, so he retconned it. And, not only did he change the timeline of events, he did so in a rather grating way. Either you love him or you hate him, I guess.

Watch along: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel playthrough

Are you down for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel? Here's a great way to see it: a 15-minute narrated walkthrough. This comes right from PAX East 2014 earlier this year, narrated by James Lopez of Gearbox Software and Joel Eschler of 2K Australia. They go full co-op, showing off the new Pandora's moon set.  This article of ours on The Pre-Sequel makes for a good companion to the video.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is official. The latest entry in Gearbox's shooter looter takes place between the original Borderlands and Borderlands 2, hence the Pre-Sequel moniker. The new game is based on the Borderlands 2 engine as well, and will be sticking to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

You'll be able to play as one of four new -- yet familiar -- characters as you work for Handsome Jack during his rise to power. Oh, and a majority of the game takes place on Pandora's moon. And you get jet packs. And laser guns. And ice weapons. Oh my.
