Is it a prequel? No, it's a "pre-sequel." Totally different things.
Okay, not really, but it's all in good fun. And today, developer Gearbox Software has announced that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will launch on October 14. They also gave us a new Moon Dance trailer that shows off some of the new environments and foes, along with a fair amount of…well, dancing.
2K says they worked with Dance Central creator Harmonix to get Claptrap to rip off the dance routine from Borderlands 2 's Doomsday trailer. The video is worth seeing just for this. Anyway, we also get the pre-order incentive: The Shock Drop Slaughter Pit:
"Enter the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit and face off against the toughest Scavs on Pandora's moon, Elpis! Survive the battle and you'll be feared and respected by the few left alive… not to mention the experience and gear you'll earn!"
The Pre-Sequel is set before Borderlands 2 but after the original title, and it will be available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Sorry, no next-gen consoles for this one. Still should be loads of fun, though!
