Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be the first Borderlands title to release on Linux Linux continues to build into a viable gaming alternative, as 2K has officially announced that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be available on Linux at release. The news was originally leaked along with Take-Two Interactive’s financials, where Linux was listed as a platform for the game. And now 2K Games has confirmed the leak to IGN, explaining that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will arrive on Linux alongside Windows, Mac, PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 on the 16th of October. If you’re hoping this means we will see the original Borderlands and Borderlands 2 on Linux too, Randy Pitchford explained back in April that you shouldn’t get your hopes up: With all of their DLC – particularly Borderlands 2‘s insane amount – porting them to Linux would not be cost effective. Fortunately, I can tell you from experience that Borderlands 2 runs fine in PlayOnLinux, with a bit of tweaking. How many of you will be playing this on Linux?
