Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Release Date Posted As October 17


Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel release date, the next zany title from developer Gearbox Software, has been announced within the UK as October 17th for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, according to its developer.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is set between the first Borderlands and Borderlands 2, taking place on Pandora’s moon for the first time in the first-person shooter series.

Pre-order bonuses have also been revealed for certain game retailers within the UK. Those who pre-order from these participating retailers will receive the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit bonus content. Players will meet TR4-NU in an ancient Dahl facility on Pandora’s moon. TR4-NU was a recruiter for Dahl, that is until he went insane. Epic loot awaits those who complete the pre-order content.

President of Gearbox Software Andy Pitchford spoke on the upcoming game, saying:

It’s incredibly exciting that an all-new Borderlands experience is as close as this October. 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.
