You can play as Handsome Jack in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel’s first DLC character is Handsome Jack, the antagonist of Borderlands 2.


Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes place between the events of the first two games, so Handsome Jack isn’t the villainous fellow we love to hate in Borderlands 2.

One top of that, the version you’ll be playing as isn’t actually Jack himself – it’s his body double, according to Polygon. That’s still super cool, though, and if we’re going to split hairs I guess he’s not Handsome Jack, either, because he isn’t yet hiding his face with a mask. Super excited to see what caused that, by the way.

Jack is included as a DLC character class in the recently announced season pass, which includes four packs with missions, characters and more.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel arrives on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in mid-October.
