Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Confirmed For Linux

By   /   Aug 8, 2014

2K Games has confirmed that the next installment in the Borderlands franchise, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, will release for the Linux platform as well.

While the publisher never really did outline the details, we can safely assume the game to launch on the same day on Linux, as well as the other platforms.

Linux gamers will not have to wait out for a delayed release. This marks the first time that a Borderlands game is releasing for Linux.

The past has seen to a lot of requests from fans to Gearbox Software about releasing Borderlands 1 and Borderlands 2 for the said platform. However, the developer stated that it’s not on their list of things-to-do and the community shouldn’t get their hopes up for it either.

This Linux release would also make folks at Valve happy, who have been pretty adamant to bring Linux back into the gaming scene. The Steam Machines are scheduled for release sometime next year and time will tell if Linux really can make an impact.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes place in between the first two installments. The game features Handsome Jack once again, but this time he’s shown in a different light. Players will see exactly how he came to be the villain he is in Borderlands 2.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is scheduled for release on October 14.
