Following a string of re-mastered games and collections for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, 2K Games and Gearbox Software are joining the fray by bringing Borderlands: The Handsome Collection to the latest consoles from Microsoft and Sony.
The original Borderlands won’t be included and The Handsome Collection will only include Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. The good news for gamers though is that your progress from your Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 will be transferable to your Xbox One or PlayStation 4 – but not across platforms, so don’t plan on loading up your PlayStation 3 saves on your Xbox One. Another new option being implemented is four player split-screen bringing back couch co-op to your living room.
The two game collection will set you back $59.99USD, as well as an insane amount of add-on content as ALL of the downloadable content for both titles is included. Not only do you get two games, but you will get the campaign add-ons, character customization packs, challenge arenas, extra classes, and more.
Should that not be enough for you, you can pick up the Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition which will be limited to just 5,000 copies worldwide and includes your very own remote-controlled Claptrap robot, as well as exclusive lithographs. Claptrap is fully functional and features:
- Gyro technology to balance on one wheel allowing it to move wherever you want him to!
- Voice samples of some of Claptrap’s most iconic lines that can be activated on command!
- A real working camera in his “eye” that is streamed to your mobile phone, so you can see where Claptrap is headed!
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is set to release on March 24th in North America, the rest of the world should see it March 27.
