Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be smaller than Borderlands 2

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be smaller than Borderlands 2

Sequels are meant to be bigger and more badass than their predecessors. But what about Pre-Sequels? The upcoming interquel takes place in between Borderlands 1 and 2 and features interesting new gameplay features. But, it won't be bigger than the last Gearbox-developed game.

"It's pretty big. I don't think it's going to be as big as Borderlands 2," Pitchford admitted.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel video preview shows off first gameplay

You've already read our preview of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, right? Coming to PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 this fall, The Pre-Sequel tells the story of the rise of Handsome Jack, the notorious villain of Borderlands 2. For the first time in the series, Borderlands goes off Pandora and to the moon. And with that setting comes brand new gameplay--notably, low-gravity areas and oxygen management. Oh, and laser beams.

Check out the first footage of the game in our new video preview:

Why Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel isn't on next-gen or Vita

Why Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel isn't on next-gen or Vita

"All the investment is going on gameplay, not tech," Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford said to us when explaining the decision to bring Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel to current-gen platforms. "We're bringing it to the platforms that we know our fans have."

But why not make it cross-gen across both next and current-gen consoles? However, Pitchford said that "the new platforms aren't exactly PCs, it's not free to do that."

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel coming to PC, PS3 & Xbox 360 this fall

When Gearbox said it wasn't working on Borderlands 3, they weren't lying. Taking place in between the first and second game in the series, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is definitely not Borderlands 3. And Gearbox isn't really working on The Pre-Sequel, opting to partner with 2K Australia to do the heavy lifting.

"My own studio spends its attention towards new IP and working towards the next gen," Gearbox president Randy Pitchford reiterated when demoing the new game to us. Instead, a conversation started with 2K Australia "over a year ago" on making a new game for the current generation.
