Gearbox has released a new video in which Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software and Tony Lawrence, general manager of 2K Australia introduce us to the next standalone AAA Borderlands game – Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. This new Borderlands game is planned for release this Fall on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel tells the story of how Jack came to become the villain of Borderlands 2, with you helping his (initially well-meaning) rise to eventual super-villainy.
According to its description, the game takes place between the original Borderlands and Borderlands 2, and will give players a whole lotta new gameplay featuring the genre fusion of shooter and RPG gameplay that this series is best known for.
The game will be powered by the same engine, though we don’t know whether this time Nvidia will implement any specific PhysX features.
