First there was nothing. Then there was light. Then a short while after that there was Nerdist Laser Tag at Petco Park during San Diego Comic-Con 2014, and you’d better believe that it was good. In case you’ve been living under a rock or trapped in one of Pandora’s vaults, you should know that this year, we teamed up with 2K and Gearbox to take over the top floor of Petco Park and transform it into the best damn Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Laser Tag arena known to mankind, skagkind, and Claptrap-kind alike! For three glorious days, hundreds of people waged glorious battle on the closest thing to the Moon of Pandora that this crumbling husk of a planet has to offer, and now we’re giving you the chance to live vicariously through a highlight reel. With an all-star cast of characters including Chris Hardwick, CM Punk, Jessica Nigri as Moon Moxxi, Matt Mira, Randy Pitchford, and more, this is the highlight reel to end all highlight reels. Seriously, everything after this will be classified as a lowlight, legally speaking. And, being that it’s Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, you can bet your bottom dollar that there’s wub-wub-wub aplenty, so be sure to crank up your speakers.
Didn’t make it to Nerdist Laser Tag? That’s okay — we still love you. I mean, not as much as our real son, but we still love you. You can still experience all the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel goodness, though, when it lands in stores on October 14, 2014.
