This unexpected revelation goes by the name of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. It is set, chronologically, between the first two numbered iterations and, geographically, upon Hyperion’s Moon-Base and the moon of Elpis. The four playable characters include Athena (via the original’s general Knoxx DLC) Nisha (possibly the Sheriff of Lynchwood) Fragtrap (military-grade claptrap) and Wilhelm (Loader Boss from the Borderlands 2 midpoint.)
Obviously this is far from official, but Gamepointsnow are confident we’ll be gifted with a reveal soon enough.
But will it be a GEARBOX reveal?
The Development Studio boss, Randy Pitchford only a month ago assured us in no uncertain terms that Borderlands 3 is NOT IN DEVELOPMENT. Perhaps this is what’s been on the boil instead – excluding, of course, the plethora of Borderlands 2 DLC that’s launched at a constant rate since the game’s release back in September 2012.
With any luck we’ll have more details in the coming days!
