2K Games and Gearbox Software have announced today that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be released on October 14 in North America and October 17 internationally for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes place between the first two games in the super-popular series and brings the series’ well-loved brand of shoot ‘n loot co-op mayhem to the moon of Pandora. Fans who pre-order the game at participating retailers will receive the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit bonus content, which is described as ” taking place in an old Dahl facility on Pandora’s moon, players will meet TR4-NU, who once was one of Dahl’s military recruiters until he went crazy. TR4-NU is now hosting the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit and giving awesome loot to those who succeed against the moon’s toughest enemies.”
Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software, offered this regarding the new game:
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.
Fans looking to pre-order the new game can do so through the official 2K Games web store.
