Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel launches for NVIDIA SHIELD devices July 1st



With today’s announcement of the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV release date comes word that one of the biggest games shipping with the device will soon be available. NVIDIA has confirmed that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be available starting July 1st for SHIELD Android TV users.

Those who opt to buy the SHIELD Android TV Pro (the 500GB version that will cost $300) will get the game for free as part of their purchase, while we imagine others will have to pay some yet-to-be-announced nominal fee.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is a first-person cooperative shooter that follows the story of Handsome Jack, the annoying protagonist that made your life a living hell in Borderlands 2. He leads a group of four baddies from previous games to take control of the Helios space station.

Fans of past Borderlands will find a familiar game here, including raunchy humor, a deep loot system and RPG elements for each character. No word on whether this launch will spread to other Android users just yet, but we’ll do our darndest to find out.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Holy, this is quite a major gaming offering!

  2. Is it streaming or running natively?!

    1. Natively. Haven’t you heard of the Shield TV? It was mentioned often in their launch speech. Borderlands 2, the Pre-Sequel, Doom (4?) and Crisis 3 are just some of the native, Android games that will run on it, plus Portal, half-life, etc.

      And then there’s the grid games…

      And.. The game steaming from your pc…

      And.. The regular, non shield android game from Google play…

      And… The sideloaded apps and games (that might work but still haven’t be cleared for Google play for android tv)…
