2K Games and Gearbox have announced a brand new bundle that pretty much every gamer on the face of the planet saw coming from a few miles away. Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel are officially coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The two games are shipping in a single bundle dubbed Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. It’s “Handsome” because these two games feature the story of Handsome Jack, the main bad dude in Borderlands 2 and the leader of the four heroes in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. We all love Handsome Jack.
The bundle will sell for $59.99 starting on March 24, 2015. If you played these games on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, you’ll be able to transfer your saves if you stay within console families for the upgrade. Even further, both games will offer four-player splitscreen local multiplayer. That’s a first for Borderlands.
Now, if you’re a Borderlands superfan with a love for Claptrap, you can pony up $399 for an extra limited special edition. 5,000 Borderlands: The Handscome Collection Claptrap-in-a-Box Editions are being sold at that almost $400 price tag. They each include a remote controlled Claptrap robot that speaks, streams live footage, is entirely mobile and is controlled with a phone app. These special editions also include a steel game case and 12 lithographs.
Alright, any takers? I’ll stick with just the games myself.
