Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel announced for PS3 only

2K Games has announced that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is coming to the PS3 only in the autumn.

Despite the existence of the PS4, 2K Games has revealed that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is a PS3 exclusive to be released later this year.

The third instalment of the series is set between Borderland and Borderlands 2, focusing on the story of the Borderlands 2 antagonist Handsome Jack.

Set on Elpis, Pandora’s moon, the game is filled with new baddies like Scavengers and Lunatics. You’ll also have to work out the new oxygen system.

Not only does it allow you to breathe on the moon, but you’ll also be equipped with a oxygen-powered jetpack for moon jumps and double jumps.

Oxygen is also a lootable source just like other things in the Borderlands games, so you’ll very rarely run out of it.

If you’re wondering whether there will be loads of new weapons to play with, you’ll be pleased to hear there are now laser guns in your arsenal.

“In Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, you’ll shoot ‘n’ loot with laser guns – the type that ‘pew pew’ like in Star Wars, and the type that shoot continuous beams like in Ghostbusters”, explains 2K Games.

You’ll also be able freeze and shatter enemies using new Cryo weapons, the brand new elemental damage type.

2K Games also revealed that Borderlands 2 is coming to the PS Vita on May 6, along with the PS Vita Slim in the US.

It will come with six DLC packs and is cross-play compatible with your PS3 edition, meaning you can pick up and play where you left off.
