Gearbox is definitely my favorite game developer. They constantly come out with new and absolutely fun content for Borderlands and it looks like The Pre-Sequel will be nothing short of awesome as well. Giving more depth to Handsome Jack's story along with the overtake of Hyperion is exactly what a lot of fans were calling for.
The game is built upon the Borderlands 2 game engine, which I see absolutely no problem with. Borderlands 2 was quite a solid game, and they ended up being able to do a lot more with it than I thought they would. With the addition of low gravity(not Zero gravity like they keep saying) which opens up the environments in a big way, there will be a lot more to explore in this game!
Four new classes, including a playable Claptrap(that's absolutely going to be my character) means you know the game play itself will be fresh and full of new surprises! Even from a story standpoint there are a lot of interesting ways they can make Handsome Jack's character seem much more appealing. Although, you are still technically fighting for the bad guys.
All in all, I believe this will breathe new life into a franchise that was already fresh and going strong. Keep up the good work 2K and Gearbox!
