Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel guide instructs on the do's and don't of lunar survival with Handsome Jack

This Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel instructional guide, narrated by Handsome Jack, initiates Vault Hunters new to Pandora's moon on the various do's and don't's of lunar survival, and the badassery of their new weapons, skills and abilities.

The pre-sequel is set in between Borderlands and Borderlands 2 and serves as a sequel to the first game and a prequel to the second. Its story centers on the rise of Handsome Jack, who began his journey "maybe with morally good intentions," according to head of Gearbox Randy Pitchford. The title features new four characters fighting together one another on the team of Handsome Jack.

In development by 2K Australia, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is scheduled to launch on Oct. 14 in North America, with an international release slated for Oct. 17 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.

You can read in our interview with Pitchford why Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is a last-gen game developed outside of Gearbox. Find out more details about its gameplay from our hands-on preview with the game from E3 2014.
