Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! is a first-person shooter developed by Gearbox Software, with assistance from 2K Australia and published by 2K Games. It is the third game in the Borderlands series, serving as an interquel between the original Borderlands released in 2009 and its 2012 sequel Borderlands 2. It was released for Windows, Mac OS, Linux, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on October 14, 2014. The rumored existence of the game was first reported on April 7, 2014, and it was officially announced two days later on April 9 2014 for a release on 14 October 2014. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports were released as part of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection on March 24, 2015.

The storyline of The Pre-Sequel focuses on Handsome Jack (who would be the antagonist in Borderlands 2), an employee of the Hyperion corporation; after the company's Helios space station is captured by a military operation known as the Lost Legion, he leads a group of four playable characters—all of whom were NPCs and bosses in previous Borderlands games—on an expedition to re-gain control of Helios and defeat the Lost Legion. The game expands upon the engine and gameplay of Borderlands 2 and introduced new gameplay mechanics, including low-gravity environments, freeze weapons, and oxygen tanks, which are used to navigate and perform ground slamming attacks.
