We’ve suspected it for a while, and now 2K and Gearbox Software have confirmed that Borderlands is coming to current gen. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection will be full gathering together of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-sequel (not the first game, sadly), both remastered for current gen, along with all of the DLC available for the games, which is a massive amount of extra content, including highlights like Captain Scarlett and the Pirate’s Booty, and Tiny Tina’s Assault On Dragon Keep, just two of over 10 add-ons and challenge packs. This also includes upcoming season pass content for the Pre-Sequel.
Along with all of this comes a new, four-player split screen co-op mode, and the function to transfer your existing last gen save games to the new version.
If you’re very lucky (and have the cash), you may even be able to bag one of the limited Collector’s Editions, which includes a steel book case, 12 lithographs, and a fully functional remote control Claptrap, which even talks. Only 5,000 of these are being produced, and they’ll retail for around $400. They’ll be available to order worldwide.
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection will arrive on March 24 in the US, and March 27 internationally for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
