Borderlands is coming to PS4 and Xbox One

Have you been holding out on getting Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in the hopes that it would eventually make its way to the new consoles? that wait may have paid off; there’s a shinier port of the game coming to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. In March, you’ll be able to play both Borderlands 2 and the Pre-Sequel on your new console; they’re coming together in one hand-dandy package called The Handsome collection. If you have played them, why would you get this for $60?

Well, it’ll be running at a full 1080p and at a smooth as silk 60fps – but you’ll also be able to play four player split screen at 30fps. Players will also be able to transfer their old gen saves to the new games, so you won’t feel bad about all that missing loot. It’ll also include every bit of DLC released for both games.

For real fans, there’s a collector’s edition that’ll set you back $400. The Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition, includes a mini, remote-controlled claptrap so you can annoy your friends with a real-life annoying robot! You get to control him using a smartphone, which will also give you a video freed from his eye. That’s pretty damned cool – but not $400 cool if you ask me.

Clap

Me? I can’t be too excited. I’ve played the hell out of Borderlands 2, and I’m finding The Pre Sequel less exciting – so there’s little chance I’d make the most of it. Still, if you’ve never played the games, this could be quite the treat. It’s just odd that it doesn’t include the very first game; a collection of all three games is something I’d very much like to own.

“The Handsome Collection gives players the opportunity to experience the full arc of Handsome Jack’s rise and fall, from his not-so-humble beginnings on Elpis to becoming the tyrannical Hyperion CEO on Pandora, all in one value-packed bundle,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “This collection marks the Borderlands franchise’s official move to the next-gen platforms, and we’re proud to offer our fans the ability to continue playing with the characters they’ve built as they carry on adventuring in The Handsome Collection.”

      Wait where have I experienced this?….oh wait I played it on my PC -_- , oh and with Sweetfx…how the game was seriously meant to be played

      Think that 1080 60fps is due to no Physx

        It’s about the price of a parrot drone any ways, I mean you could put it near stairs and roleplay it cursing Jack 🙂

            I can see myself saving for a while for that new rig

            Yeah a new rig is rather steep on your wallet. Steam se moer. XD

      To be honest, if you haven’t played these yet, then that price is incredible value as well. These games rock. Unless you’ve played them already in which case there’s 0 value in this.

        Or you don’t like FPS, in which case it has no value. It still has a great price though.

          True, but still – for some people there is incredible value in this package. Some.

    I was going to moan about lack pf PC port, but then I realised… you can play it at beyond 1080p 60 FPS…. 😛 So it’s fine…. Glad to see the boxes can handle an Unreal Engine 3 game at 1080p 60fps, though…

    I love borderlands 1 and 2, but I can’t say I love it that much to replay borderlands 2 and co on the PS4. I’d rather play Borderlands 3 on PS4…

    On the side, any one else starting to get a little tired of these re-leases and HD-remakes? At worst it’s cheapening this whole generation – makes me feel less of a game and more of an asshole attached to a wallet.
