Bonus mission in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel ties into Telltale series

Borderlands The Pre Sequel Screen 5

Gearbox add a bit of cross game synergy to inform Telltale’s Tales from the Borderlands

Along with the new DLC coming to Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will also be coming a new bonus mission that sheds some light on some of the occurrences in Telltale’s Tales from the Borderlands. We’ve detailed the content below, so look away now if you want to avoid spoilers.

When you’ve got The Pre-Sequel’s new DLC installed (due next week) you’ll be able to head to the Hyperion Hub of Heroism and talk to Nakayama to get the new Handsome AI mission. In taking part you’ll be tasked with “a quick errand that sheds some light on Nakayama’s plans to immortalize everybody’s favorite Hyperion CEO using high-tech artificial intelligence.”

In short, the mission sets out to explain how Handsome Jack is able to make an appearance at the end of the first episode from Tales from the Borderlands even though he was killed off in Borderlands 2, just in case you were wondering.

The second chunk of DLC for The Pre-Sequel, the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack: The Holodome Onslaught, starts rolling out from 16th December. Players will be able to take to the Holodome Arena to earn new class mods, new heads and skins and of course, more guns. You’ll also be able to level up to 60, grabbing 10 new skill points on the way.
