Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is going to be larger than the first Borderlands on scale, revealed CEO of Gearbox Games Randy Pitchford.
Speaking with PC Gamer, Pitchford stated that while the game would not be as ‘big’ as Borderlands 2, it certainly is larger than Borderlands 1. So it’s somewhere in between both titles in terms of scale.
Continuing from there, Pitchford said that the game should be priced accordingly. “As far as price point goes, I don’t think that’s set in stone yet,” he said. “It should be priced correctly, so we’ll have to see what happens in the market and understand the actual total value proposition that’s being offered. But I’m the developer. The guys at 2K will figure that out.”
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel was already in development with 2K Australia when it was announced last week. Set for release on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, Borderlands: TPS ties in the previous titles together and follows Handsome Jack’s rise to power.
It will take place on the moon orbiting Pandora, as well as the mysterious Hyperion Base that can be seen casting its shadow on the moon throughout Borderlands 2. The game will feature new characters including a playable claptrap character named Fragtrap.
