What that what is a pre-sequel? Well, this newest release will act to tie Borderlands and Borderlands 2 story lines together. As with other Borderlands releases, you’ll get four new character classes, who will actually fight along side the aforementioned Handsome Jack. Basically, you’ll be there to witness he transformation into a Vault Hunter’s worst nightmare and help bring about the rise of the Hyperion Corporation. As with the Assassin’s Creed series, you might be asking where’s this new game going to be set? Well, the moon of course, or Pandora’s moon to be exact.
Details on the playable characters are a bit light at this time, but they are actually characters from some portion of Borderlands or Borderlands 2. The newest class for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is the Fragtrap. That’s right, you can now play as your favorite hunk of metal, Claptrap with a gun. And of course, the arsenal for this game just wouldn’t be right without LASERS!!!!
