New Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Treats!


If you haven’t been keeping up on this one, shame on you! But then again, that’s what I’m here for; to catch you up to all the latest news and info. As a quick refresher before I hop into a few recent updates, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will take place on Pandora’s moon with a cast of 4 new classes who will shoot ‘n’ loot alongside the lovable tyrant Handsome Jack before he became what we all know him as today. You’ll fight on all new low-gravity moonscapes with new moves, weapons and vehicles, trying to help Jack prevent the destruction of Pandora and its moon. The flip-side is that you’ll also watch Handsome Jack transform from this helpful do-gooder into a greedy tyrant, and directly help contribute to the rise of the corrupt Hyperion Corporation.



Following that teaser of Handsome Jack’s tips, Gearbox will be releasing more gameplay videos for the new characters and extra goodies on their site. First up, we have Athena. In this gameplay video between Gearbox Devs and IGN, we see Athena in action, as well as her Phalanx, Xiphos and Ceraunic Storm skill trees in detail and a first look at the new Stingray and Moon Buggy vehicles.



The second teaser revealed this week was Wilhelm’s gameplay and skill trees. Take a peek below:


 Stay tuned to us or visit Gearbox directly for more updates. The next character to be shown will be Nisha, and right now Gearbox has released Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel themed heads and skins into Borderlands 2. Cosplay as the new characters in Borderlands 2 as you wait for this game’s release. These skins and heads are now available as extremely rare drops in game, but if you check back on the Gearbox site over the next few weeks, they are releasing SHiFT codes to unlock each one. Currently available we have Axton as Athena and Salvador as Wilhelm. On August 1 they will release Maya as Nisha, August 8 will release Zer0 as Claptrap, August 15 will be Gaige as Moon Moxxi and August 22 will be Kreig as Scav.

My name is Felicia but many just call me Lixx or Scilixx. I’ve been a gamer since I could sit up and play Asteroids on Atari. I became hooked immediately and have had a longterm love affair with video games. Of course, Atari wasn’t enough for me. I branched out into every generation after that. I still own them all, over 20 different working consoles. To quote Gollum, they are “my precious.” But I will admit, lately I have become a very healthy member of the PC Master Race. Do not despair, I’m not really much of a fan-girl to anything in particular. I like anything that gives me enjoyment. Whether its on a PC, console, handheld or even phone, I don’t care. I will play it. Currently some of my favorite games include Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate & Fire Emblem (3DS), Soul Sacrifice & Toukiden (PS Vita), Diablo 3 & Borderlands 2 (PC). And yes, I generally will play multiple games throughout the day. If I go without gaming for a day, stay out of my way, I will not be in a very jolly mood. Outside of gaming, I enjoy a good fantasy novel, violent tv shows (Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire), and folding origami. :3

Have your say!
