Two weeks after Borderlands 2 came to Linux, today marks the official debut of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and it's just not coming out for Windows but Linux too.

Today is the North American launch date for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and this time around it's greeted by same-day support on Linux.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel cost $60 USD on Steam and can be bought via this link for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The Linux requirements for this new Borderlands title is listed as SteamOS or Ubuntu 14.04, an Intel Core 2 Quad / AMD Phenom II X4, 4GB of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 260 graphics or better, and 13GB+ of disk storage. Of course, NVIDIA graphics with their binary driver are preferred over AMD Catalyst initially.
