The Borderlands series is known for its witty writing and often crass sense of humor, so it should come as no surprise that the Presequel, which launches soon for the Xbox 360 and PS3, is packed with the same goodness that made the first two games in the series such a hit. Watch the launch trailer below and prepare for AWESOME!
Borderlands: The Presequel serves to tell the story of what happended between the first two games in the series. Chronicling the rise of the nefarious Handsome Jack, the primary antagonist of Borderlands 2 and all around asshole, as he sends his minions, played by you, to explore the moon of the planet Pandora, a dangerous world filled with deadly bandits, ravenous monsters, and more loot then you can shake a rocket launcher at. Playing as one of four different characters, Athena, the Gladiator, Wilhelm, the Enforcer, Nisha, the Lawbringer, and Claptrap, the uh “Fragtrap,” players will experience the story of Handsome Jacks rise to power first hand and learn just how he became the megalomaniacial head of the Hyperion Corporation that we all love to hate.
You can bring it to the moon on the 17th when Borderlands: The Presequel blasts its way into stores nationwide. You can follow us on Twitter @APGNation for the latest in gaming news and reviews.
