Borderlands Pre-Sequel Available on Linux, Download it Now
The new game from the Borderlands franchise, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel has been released yesterday and gamers from all over the world are excited to play another alien hunting, shoot and loot adventure.
But from this fall, Linux users will finally be able to play this popular game. First, Borderlands 2 came to Linux platform more than two years after its PC release, and now Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is available to play on Linux right from the first day!
The story of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is set between Borderlands and Borderlands 2 to reveal the story behind Handsome Jack’s transformation to a villain. Also, another great addition to this game is the possibility of taking adorable robot Claptrap as a playable character.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel has been available to pre-purchase on Steam for Linux and through GameAgent since late September, and reviews are pretty much positive. The game is available to order from the same day as the Linux release of Borderlands 2.
Thanks to the Unreal 3 engine, which was used for the creation of this game, Linux gamers will be able to access all of the same features, downloadable content, settings and multiplayer options as their Windows and OS X colleagues.
If you’re not sure if your computer is strong enough to run this game, no worries, here are the minimum specifications:
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (or later)
- Intel Core 2 Quad or AMD Phenom II X4 2.4 GHz (or better)
- 4 GB RAM
- 13 GB HDD Space
- Nvidia Geforce 260 with 1 GB VRAM (or better)
But you shouldn’t worry about hardware specifications, because if you can play Borderlands 2 at an acceptable level you should also be able to play this title, too.
And while Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: Pre-Sequel arrived on Linux, it is unlikely that we’ll see Linux port for Borderlands 1 soon, because publishers have not announced anything about this game coming to Linux.
Borderlands: Pre-Sequel is available for the price of 49,99 euros and is already available in the US, but it will arrive in Europe on October 16th.
