Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel now available with select GeForce cards
Starting today, gamers who purchase select Nvidia GeForce GTX® TITAN, 780 Ti, 780, and 770 desktop GPUs will receive a free copy of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. It’s the highly anticipated new chapter to the Borderlands franchise from 2K and Gearbox Software.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, like the other Borderlands games, combines FPS gameplay with RPG leveling-up mechanics as well as collaborative multiplayer. It will focus on four familiar playable protagonists that are working as henchmen for Handsome Jack. The plot will follow Handsome Jack’s descent into villainy as he becomes the antagonist of Borderlands 2.
The game introduces new gameplay mechanics, including anti-gravity, freeze weapons, and more. And with Nvidia’s PhysX technology, players will use new ice and laser weapons to experience destructible levels of mayhem.
“If you have a high-end Nvidia GPU, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will offer higher fidelity and higher performance hardware-driven special effects including awesome weapon impacts, moon-shatteringly cool cryo explosions and ice particles, and cloth and fluid simulation that blows me away every time I see it,” said Randy Pitchford, CEO and president of Gearbox Software.
