Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Goes To The Moon On PCs And Consoles

As if 2014 hasn't already delivered plenty of video gaming goodness to keep you occupied well into the weekend (as in, every single weekend), here's a bit of news that'll have avid RPGers excited: Borderlands is back. The next rendition of the heralded title will be a "pre-sequel," described as a "full-on co-op shooter RPG set in the five year gap between Borderlands 1 & 2)."

It will reportedly be set on the moon of Elpis, and players can select "one of Jack/Johns four lieutenants to play as in Athena The Gladiator, Wilhelm The Enforcer, Nisha The Lawbringer and Fragtrap, a militarized claptrap." Per usual, you'll be overwhelmed by the amount of weaponry options, and yes, laser-based weapons will be available. It's reported that a lack of gravity will keep things interesting in gameplay, and oxygen will become a scarce resource.

As of now, there's no set date for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, but rumors peg it sometime during 2014. The only major downside? As of now, the title is only set to release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which puts next-gen owners of Xbox One and PS4 out in the cold.
