Get to know the cast of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, learn more about how Claptrap plays

Curious about the motivation behind the Vault Hunters in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel? Care more about things other than pure loot? Then you may want to watch the new trailer for 2K Australia and Gearbox Software's next entry in the Borderlands franchise. The video also shows Claptrap's action skill in, well, action for the first time.

Watch the above Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel trailer for a look at Athena the Gladiator, Wilhelm the Enforcer, Nisha the Lawbringer and Claptrap the Fragtrap and their individual reasons for aligning with Borderlands 2 antagonist Handsome Jack. Don't blink around the 23 second mark, or you'll miss a sneak peek at Claptrap's skills.

Claptrap will be playable at both this week's Gamescom in Cologne, Germany and PAX Prime in Seattle, Wash., later this month.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC on Oct. 14.
