2K Offers New Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Gameplay, Discuss Possible Next-Gen Port

Handsome Jack stole the spotlight earlier today with a number of tips for surviving in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, but today it’s the developers at 2K Australia and Gearbox that want a moment of your time to walk you through some raw gameplay footage of the newest entry in the Borderlands universe.

The gameplay walkthrough comes from 2K’s E3 demo, and follows Wilhelm as he cruises through several waves of enemies while utilizing his special abilities. You also get a chance to see what his skill tree looks like, as well as a closer look at the low gravity gameplay.


We’ve also got word from Tony Lawrence from 2K Australia that they’re not opposed to bringing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel to next-gen consoles. Speaking to gamereactorTV, Lawrence had this to say:

As we said, one day maybe, I don’t know. We’ll think about that, see how people react to the game, how much fun they have and whether or not everyone moves on to the next gen fully next year. For now we’re pretty happy with our choice and I think people are going to be to.

If fans say ‘hey, we’d really like this on a next-gen console’, well, we’ll think about that, but right now we’re concentrating on the consoles we know.

If you can’t wait for the possible release on new hardware, you can get your hands on Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel via the PS3, Xbox 360, or PC on October 17th in Europe, and three days prior in North America. And if you really can’t wait for more Borderlands goodness, check out our recent hands-on experience.

  1. Now that I have a PS4:

    Hey, I’d really like this on a next-gen console.

    Is that the sort of thing that they are looking for?? ;)

  2. If sales aren’t very good then I could very well see it happening very soon.

    If sales ARE good, it could very well happen anyway.

    • Yeah, I have to admit that I didn’t really understand the caveat of ‘if it sells well on PS3, perhaps we’ll consider it’ (which is kind of what they seem to be saaying) – What about those that traded in their PS3 to get a PS4 & are now itching for some more claptrap action?

      I have both, but I am more geared to finishing off my backlog of PS3 games (of course, keeping a few staple titles to return to) so that I can move forwards with PS4 games, not adding yet more games to the pile of PS3 stuff I need to start/finish.

      Personally, I would love to play this on PS4.

  3. Given full HD is equivalent to 2K, wouldn’t a PS4 version make sense?
