Video: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel gameplay

What the press got to play at E3.

Most of our attention at E3 was on next-gen delights, but for those who haven't made the jump yet there's still the odd game heading to existing systems this year, perhaps most notably Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, which graces PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in late October.

Under the watchful eye of original creator Gearbox, 2K Australia is transplanting that famous co-op shooter RPG gameplay to the moon, where you blast your way through the story of how the second game's bad guy, Handsome Jack, first achieved notoriety.

Stirring stuff. At E3 last week, 2K invited attendees to play through a new chunk of the game, so we've put together a video preview of these new delights and taken a look at how the moon setting impacts the series' trademark set-up.
