Borderlands 2 is a great game that was released about two years ago but it still has not lost its charm. This action role-playing first person shooter video game is the second installment in the Borderlands series which is developed by Gearbox Software. To make use of the life left in the game, the developer has announced a new prequel title to the game.

Built on Unreal Engine 3, Borderlands 2 met massive success when it was first launched in September 2012 for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The developer fervently supported the game after its launch by developing and releasing several upgrade packs and downloadable content.
A few months ago, the developer of the game announced that they are working with Iron Galaxy Studios to develop a PlayStation Vita version of Borderlands 2. After a couple of years past the original release of Borderlands 2, fans were now expecting Borderlands 3 as a next-gen title but 2K games and Gearbox Software announced Borderlands 2: The Pre-Sequel as their next contribution to the series.
Borderlands 2: The Pre- Sequel will take the players back into the future, the game will disclose the events that will occur after the story of Borderlands and prior to the events of Borderlands 2. This game project was actually planned as a DLC for Borderlands 2 but gradually the change of plans led to the development of a full standalone game, this explains why Borderlands 2: The Pre-Sequel is not a next-gen title and is only being developed for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Gearbox Software did release a trailer for Borderlands 2: The Pre-Sequel but no proper gameplay footage was shown. Thanks to Connected Digital World, we have a full HD 1080p gameplay footage showing the bad guy Handsome Jack from Borderlands 2 having fun on moon in Borderlands 2: The Pre-Sequel.
