This third game in the wildly popular Borderlands series takes gamers to Pandora's moon for trippy, space-based first-person-shooter action. The gravity is variable, the atmosphere is non-existent, but the weapons and loot are so, so plentiful. Back is the over-the-top, frenzied FPS-meets-RPG action of the first two games, but this time there are new vehicles, new weapons, new environments, and new playable characters. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel expands upon the engine and gameplay of Borderlands 2 and introduces new mechanics including anti-gravity, freeze weapons, and oxygen tanks which can be used to navigate environments and perform special attacks. You play as a member of the Hyperion Corporation and fight alongside Handsome Jack, the villain of Borderlands 2, with one of four new characters, each with his or her own abilities and play style.
