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.

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.

Gearbox lawsuit puts Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction in holding pattern

Gearbox lawsuit puts Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction in holding pattern

The situation at Interceptor has gotten complicated over the last few weeks. Following a tease from 3D Realms and Interceptor of an upcoming Duke Nukem game, Gearbox filed suit over use of the character. Interceptor subsequently bought 3D Realms, but has been cagey about releasing more details on their upcoming game. According to CEO Frederik Schreiber and new 3DR lead Mike Nielsen, the radio silence is in direct response to the suit, even though they maintain that they've acted "in good faith."

Gearbox files suit against 3D Realms and Interceptor over unauthorized use of Duke Nukem license

Gearbox files suit against 3D Realms and Interceptor over unauthorized use of Duke Nukem license

Gearbox Software has filed suit against 3D Realms and Interceptor Entertainment over alleged unauthorized use of the Duke Nukem IP, stemming from a 3DR and Interceptor Duke Nukem title currently in development. Gearbox, owner of the IP since February 2010, seeks a formal injunction against any continued infringement.

A teaser site was established on February 1 with the domain alloutofgum.com, featuring a countdown clock presumably leading to the reveal of a new 3DR and Interceptor Duke Nukem entry called Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction. According to the complaint from Gearbox, the game would have released on February 25, at the conclusion of the site's countdown.
