PAX East 2014 Recap

04.17.14 - Gearbox Staff

If you weren’t able to make it to PAX East this year, we’ve got you covered! At the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel booth, Gearbox fans were able to get a first look at live gameplay and take a photo with Handsome Jack!

As usual, Borderlands cosplayers were out in full force! To see more awesome cosplayers, as well as other pics from the show, check out our PAX East album on Facebook.

This is what the inside of the moon looked like, where fans were able to see live Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel gameplay.

Announcing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

04.09.14 - Gearbox Staff

The wait is finally over for a new game in the Borderlands universe! We’re launching you to Pandora’s moon for the first time in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, currently being co-developed by Gearbox Software and 2K Australia, and available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC later this fall. 

Set between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, you’ll play as four all-new character classes fighting alongside Handsome Jack, witnessing his transformation into the ruthless tyrant you loved to hate in Borderlands 2, and assisting with the rise of the Hyperion Corporation. The signature shoot ‘n’ loot gameplay of the Borderlands series expands with the addition of low-gravity and oxygen-powered jetpack combat, the icy ‘Cryo’ elemental damage type, the deadly laser weapon class, and new vehicles to help you explore the diverse lunar landscape.

The four new playable character classes are all familiar faces from the Borderlands universe: Athena the Gladiator (The Secret Armory of General Knoxx), Wilhelm the Enforcer (the robotic badass of Borderlands 2), Nisha the Lawbringer (The Sheriff of Lynchwood in Borderlands 2), and yes, even Claptrap the Fragtrap (from just about everywhere... unfortunately).

Bonus: Those attending PAX East this weekend will be able to get a first-hand look at Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel at the 2K booth! And if you're there, you won't want to miss the Inside Gearbox Software Panel on Sunday at 10:30am!

As always, keep an eye out on the following channels to stay up-to-date with the latest news and content:



Borderlands 2 for Vita will be hitting shelves as part of a Limited Edition PlayStation Vita Bundle on May 6th, and digitally on PlayStation Store and at retailers nationwide on May 13!

We’re making it even easier for you to send more items from LootTheWorld (out now on iOS / Android in the U.S.) to Borderlands 2!

Previously, the only way to stock up on LootTheWorld stamps was to wait around for the release of replenishment QR codes. From now on, after you use up all of your stamps, three happy new stamps will soon show up in your inventory. Continue to use your stamps wisely though, as users will only be eligible for a restock once every seven days.
