Survival Tips From Handsome Jack
Borderlands fans lucky enough to have attended E3 this year had a real treat. Claptrap didn't make an appearance, which would have been cool. Instead the next best thing, 2K Australia and Gearbox were showcasing a work in progress gameplay video of the upcoming Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
Looking at the above trailer, on first impressions, they have kept the same cartoon-style visuals. This is good, as while I am not a big fan of cel-shaded graphics, the effect worked well in Borderlands. This video is showing two of the new recruits of Handsome Jack, Athena the Gladiator and Wilhelm the Enforcer, as they fight to save Pandora's Moon.
Joel Eschler, producer of 2k Australia and James Lopez, associate producer of Gearbox, talk about Wilhelm's action skills. He is able to summon two drones, Wolf and Saint, that will be a big help to him in battle. Wolf will take a more offensive role when fighting, whereas Saint is more defensive and stays close to Wilhelm to help with health regeneration. And of course as you progress you can upgrade the skill trees of them, so in turn make them stronger.
As if that weren't enough, there was also a trailer showing tips on how to survive in the game from Handsome Jack himself. This video below is only short and just shows some gameplay of how to take out the enemies. Anyway enough of me babbling on just watch the two included trailers and enjoy. Until the game releases October 17, check back for more information on Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
