Man, look at all these remastered games coming out. Cheap! Quick cash-grabs! Bah! Flimshaw! Petroleum distillate! You won’t catch me being suckered into buying one of those games. Nope, no way Jose and one more thing…Is that a Borderlands Remastered Edition I spot out in the wild? I’ll uh, I’ll be right back…
A Borderlands listing for “multiple platforms” has been spotted on the Australian Classification Board, according to PlayerAttack, with an age-appropriate rating of MA15+. Classified yesterday, the “Borderlands Remastered Edition” listing was handed in by Gearbox and 2K Australia. Here, have a looksie:
By multiple platforms, I’d easily imagine PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. And PC. Don’t worry guys, I haven’t forgotten about you. No further information is present at this time however. I’d love to see Borderlands on new consoles, because I’m an absolute sucker for those games. But if this listing is only for the first game in the series, I’m genuinely not interested.
I’ve played through the old-gen versions multiple times. I fought the cosmic vagina at the end of that game. I battled in Mad Moxxi’s Underdome, defeated General Knoxx, braved the terrors of the mad Doctor Ned and finally murdered Claptrap. Good times, but I’m done with those missions.
Throw in Borderlands 2 and the Pre-sequel however, and I might change my tune. I’m of the firm belief that a Remaster needs to go all out. It needs to add as much content as possible. That’s why recent Remasters such as GTA V, Sleeping Dogs and Tomb Raider have been highlights of the year for me.
A Borderlands remastered edition that packs in the first game, the sequel and the Pre-sequel with all of the expansive DLC and some new-gen sheen on those cel-shaded graphics, I’d happily snap up. Especially since the previous Borderlands game has been spotted elsewhere.
