Meet Athena In This BORDERLANDS: THE PRE-SEQUEL Hands-On With The Devs

Meet Athena. She’s a badass killer (literally). She’s also got a handy dandy shield that she can chuck at Moon goons Captain America-style. You may remember her from the original Borderlands DLC expansion, The Secret Armory Of General Knoxx, and now she’s bringing her prowess to Handsome Jack’s moon-based fireteam in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

BTPS_Athena the Gladiator_Pose01Come explore with me as our tour guides Anthony Burch (Gearbox Software) and Steve Mander-Jones (2K Australia) take us on an in-depth escapade across the alien and madman infested moon. And as a special treat, we have the first gameplay footage of the Stingray, a moon-traversing hover-vehicle with the ability to teabag grounded enemies.

That was just the first of the three Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel hands-on demos we’ll be featuring here on Nerdist. Next week we’ll be taking a closer look at the Borderlands 2 baddie Wilhelm, before he got all augmented and robot-like, so be sure to keep it locked here.
