About Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
 
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is the newest entry in the critically acclaimed Borderlands franchise that was co-developed by Gearbox Software and 2K Australia. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel continues the franchise??s tradition of industry-leading co-op, allowing up to four players to experience all-new low-gravity, shoot ??n?? loot gameplay on Pandora??s moon. Featuring four new playable character classes armed with powerful laser and icy Cryo weapons, players will battle against an array of new enemies. Taking place in-between the events of Borderlands and Borderlands 2, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is a great introduction into the franchise while showcasing Handsome Jack??s transformation into the ruthless tyrant fans loved to hate in Borderlands 2.
