You can play Borderlands 2 and its associated DLC and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and its DLC today, just like you could yesterday. But this time, it’s all packaged together for the new-gen consoles in a definitive collection with some new features, like four-player splitscreen.
One player is doing a Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel run with no guns or melee. Butt slams only. They're challenging others to join them in this gleeful insanity.

You can now play with the skill trees of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel: perfect if you'd like to plan out in advance what you'll do on your first playthrough.

Not only does this video contain more than 15 minutes of footage from the upcoming last-gen-only Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, it also includes more than 15 minutes of narration in both regular and Australian flavors. What a bargain!
If you've ever just looked up at the sky while playing a Borderlands game you might've noticed the big H-shaped, Hyperion-owned moonbase suspended ominously in space above the planet Pandora. Well, in the next big Borderlands game, coming out this fall, you'll be going to that moon.
