Rumor: Borderlands new game (PS3, 360 & PC, pre-sequel on the Moon, releases this year)

Borderlands license could back this year on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. The story would be developed on the Moon and it would be set in the 5 years gap between Borderlands 1 and 2.

I am going to summarize the highlights of this new possible Borderlands:

Characters:

Four new characters: 1. Athena, The Gladiator (first performed in The Secret Armory of General Knoxx). 2. Wilhelm, The Enforcer (was one of the bosses of Borderlands 2). 3. Nisha, The Lawbringer. 4. Fragtrap (an upgraded Claptrap robot).

Abilites:

– Athena: melee-class fighter that wields a kinetic shield that absorbs bullets and a plasma sword to defeat enemies.
– Wilhelm: provided with shoulder cannons and drones that can be summoned in battle.

Storyline (Caution, Spoilers!)

The group will look for an alien artefact and they will receive orders from John, a programmer. This character will become “handsome Jack”, a villain in Borderlands 2.

Classes and gameplay

– Two new classes: laser and freezing cryo effects.

– Gameplay: jetpacks available to drive through the low gravity surface of the planet. Oxygen is finite, you will have to replenish it using OX-kits.

Release

2014 on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Next-gen not allowed.
