PS4 logo

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Ships for Xbox 360, PS3

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

You've heard of prequels and sequels, but a "pre sequel"? The way 2K has positioned Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, the title makes sense. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes place between the stories of the first two games in the franchise. Apparently "1.5" didn't make sense; these aren't the days of Naked Gun 33 1/3. Although Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes place between the first and second Borderlands titles, the new open-world game is a completely stand-alone title. n Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, fans can play as … [Read more...]
