'Borderlands' looks good in 'Handsome Collection' for PS4, Xbox One

Posted on

Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel are receiving a facelift, as 2K Games has announced both games will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as part of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.

The series—known for its cel-shaded art style, its dirty sense of humor, and the approximately gazillion guns players can use—is making the jump to the newest generation of consoles with the collection. While the bundle doesn’t include the original Borderlands, there are dozens of hours of content between the two included games, which have received a graphical bump as they debut on the PS4 and Xbox One.

In addition to the two main games, the collection will also include every piece of additional content released for Borderlands 2 and that is scheduled for release for The Pre-Sequel. This included over 30 character customization packs, additional characters to play like Gaige the Mechromancer, and campaign expansions like the inventive and fun “Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep.”

The collection will also allow four players to play on the same screen for the first time in the franchise’s history, a feature normally limited to only two players on the same screen or four playing online separately. And for those who have already played a chunk of either or both games on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, or PlayStation Vita, the collection will allow players to transfer their save files to the newer version.

The Handsome Collection will release on March 24 in North America for $59.99. For those who just can’t get enough of the series, there will also be a limited-run special edition for $399, which, among a few other collectibles, justifies its price point with a remote-controlled Claptrap of your very own.
