Gearbox Releasing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Cosplay Character Guides, Starting with Athena and Nisha
Taking a play out of BioWare's playbook, Gearbox Software is steadily releasing "Cosplay Character Guides" for the protagonists of the upcoming Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. The first character guide, released last week, was for Athena. Borderlands Franchise Director Matt Armstrong describes her as: "Former leader of a secret branch of the Crimson Lance: The Omega Squad. An elite trained assassin and born leader. Athena fights on the frontline with her custom Aspis kinetic shield absorbing damage and defending her allies. She was born to lead, and does not suffer fools."
The second character guide, released yesterday, was for Nisha. Armstrong describes her in the following way: "Nisha is tall, lean, and full of ornery. She’s the baddest girl in the Borderlands, with a mean streak a mile wide. But hell, at least she wears it with a smile."
You can view all the images for both characters below, but be sure to check the source news posts for hi-res images and the PDF files, which contain all the details like the color palette.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is coming to PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in Fall 2014.
