2K Australia and Gearbox have teamed up to take you to the Borderlands again in the The Pre-Sequel. The story takes place between Borderlands 1 & 2 and will be about Handsome Jack and his attempt to escape his exile from the Hyperion moon base and in the process he captures it for himself.
There are new playable characters that all hail from the previous installments; Athena, a crimson lance assassin from the General Knoxx expansion. Sheriff Nisha, an NPC from Borderlands 2. Wilhelm, the first boss character in Borderlands 2 and Claptrap! Love him or hate him, now you can play as him.
It also seems that characters and saves WILL NOT carry over to the new game and there will be new play mechanics and skills and of course new guns.
I was a huge Borderlands fan but I think that I have my fill towards the end of the second game. I still will keep an eye on this.
The title is aiming for a 2014 Fall release and will be available for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
