2K Games has today teased their Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel game after they first unveiled it back in April of this year, this time officially announcing the release date for the game as October 14th in North America, and October 17th internally.

The first-person shooter is currently under development by 2K Australia and Gearbox Software for the PC, PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360, and will focus on four characters during the course of its quests and free roaming activities.

“All playable characters were featured as NPCs in previous Borderlands games, working as henchmen for Handsome Jack, the antagonist of Borderlands 2.

The plot will follow Handsome Jack’s descent into villainy, focusing on his escape and capture of the Hyperion company’s moonbase. The game will expand upon the engine and gameplay of Borderlands 2 and introduce new gameplay mechanics, including anti-gravity, freeze weapons, and oxygen tanks which can be used to navigate environments and perform special attacks.”
