2K and Gearbox Software have announced that Borderlands will be making its next-gen debut in the form of a remastering. Titled, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, the game will include Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel as well as all downloadable content for both games. This means all of the extra characters and character customization packs, in addition to the larger campaign expansions, such as Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep and Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt.
The bundle will be listed for £50 / $60. It will also support cross-save functionality between consoles of the same family – this means gamers will be able to transfer save files over from their Xbox 360s to their Xbox Ones, and likewise for their PlayStations. Added to this is the ability to play to split-screen with up to four players on a single screen, a series first.
And for you collectors out there, 2K and Gearbox have also revealed a special “Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition.” It will cost you around £270 / $400 for the special privilege of owning an annoying robot companion, however. Only 5,000 of these will be sold worldwide.
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection comes to North America on March 24, and will be made available internationally beginning March 27. In the meantime, you can check out our review of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel here – spoiler: the game isn’t too hot.
