Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! – Gearbox On Potential DLC, Original Vault Hunters Will Make An Appearance

It’s no secret that Gearbox loves to supporting their Borderlands titles after release with content. In fact Borderlands 2 is set to receive its final DLC almost two years after launch.

So it should come as no surprise to Borderlands fans that with the upcoming Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, DLC isn’t being ruled out.

Talking with PC Gamer, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford stated the following on the topic of DLC:

“Right now all of the energy is being focused on the game. I think it’s a reasonable expectation [to think that there will be more DLC], but I don’t know what that is yet. We’re still making the game, but I think that’d be awesome. That’d be really cool. There’s a lot of places we could explore. There’s four characters we’re doing—we imagined more than that. It’d be awesome to build more characters too. It’d be awesome to build more content. We’ll see. I don’t want to make any promises yet, but as a content creator it’d be awesome to do more.”

Furthermore, despite Borderlands: TPS taking place on Pandora’s moon Elpis, the original vault hunters; Brick, Lilith, Mordecai, and Roland, will be making some type of cameo, according to one of the co-writers for the title, Anthony Burch. He revealed that we will see the beginning of the relationship between the original four and see how they befriended each other.

Personally, a possible cameo of the original four vault hunters is something I’m definitely looking forward to, considering the fact that Wilhem and Handsome Jack had a run in with them before Borderlands 2 took place.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is set to launch this Fall for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms.

In what capacity would you want the original four vault hunters to be featured in Borderlands: TPS?
