Today, 2K & Gearbox announced... Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for both Xbox One, and PS4 at the price of 60$. It contains a remastered Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and Borderlands 2.

 

Here's some of the features of the game:

  • Now supports 4 Player Co-op on the same console (compared to the original 2 max)
  • Saves from the previous-gen Pre-Sequel, or 2 carry over to the PS4/Xbox One version. You cannot cross saves from a PS3 to an Xbox One, and so on
  • All DLC from both the Pre-Sequel, and 2 will be in the Handsome Collection. This includes the unreleased DLC for the Pre-Sequel
  • The game runs at 1080p, and up to 60fps. In 4 player splitscreen it's around 30fps

 

Full list of DLC:

Spoiler

 

 

In addition a limited edition (which there are only 5,000 units) dubbed the Claptrap-in-a-box Edition will release simultaneously with the regular edition at a price of 400$. Here's what it contains:

  • Remote controlled Claptrap that stands 11 inches tall, and is controlled using an iOS, and Android app for Phone or Tablet: ClaptrApp. The Claptrap also has a camera in it's eye that can be streamed to the app. The bot speaks nearly two dozen different phrases, and it's battery life lasts around 20 minutes.
  • The Handsome Jack Collection, including all the DLC
  • 12 Vault Hunter lithographs: all the Vault Hunters from the games in the Handsome Collection.
  • Collectible steel case for the games with custom artwork

 

Limited Edition & Game screenshots, Announcement Trailer, and Claptrap RC demo:

Spoiler

 

 

Both the Standard, and Limited Editions of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection are now available for pre-order. The game will release in North America on March 24th, and internationally on March 27th.

Never played Borderlands, but this seems great for those interested. Great article SD.

 

By the way, does playing the second Borderlands without playing the first affect how much I'll end up enjoying the game (overall including both gameplay and story)?

I barely played the first one, but what I did play through, I didn't enjoy nearly as much as I enjoyed the second. The gameplay, graphics, characters and story were all way more appealing to me than in the first one (mostly cause of the mechromancer and psycho characters).

 

As for the article, I love that they are doing this, have been planning on going back and playing through it again, but didn't have anyone to do it with. Now it's coming out for Xbox One with alllllll the DLC (ermagherd content). Definitely near the top of my "To buy" list XD

 

Edit: Oh yeah, and since it includes the Pre-Sequel, that's an added bonus too o_o

Never played Borderlands besides the first one so this might make me want to give it a go.

 

However is there any news if this will be at 60 FPS? After seeing what 60 FPS can do for games like Halo I hope this collection can benefit from that hardware boost too + 60 FPS is just the best.

I'll update the thread if I get an update. I don't think the games will run at 60fps with 4 player splitscreen, but that's just what I think.

Never played Borderlands, ever. :)

 

 

Question is should I get this? All three seems like a pretty sweet deal to me.

Three? What? 

 

The Pre-Sequel and 2 are the only ones included in this, but yes, the series is great if you love loot dropping like hotcakes.

Sounds good. I may consider picking this up someday, if it catches my eye and is at a low enough price.

I got the info.

  • The game runs at 1080p, and up to 60fps. In 4 player splitscreen it's around 30fps

 

The thread is updated with a bunch of new information.

30 Fps.. With those graphics, you'd think it would be 60 all the time..

4 player splitscreen is not going to handle 60fps with all the stuff going on in the games. Single Player most likely can cap 60fps easily, and 2 player is a minor hit.

 

Halo 2: Anniversary isn't even as large as Borderlands, but still gets frame rate drops with only 2 player splitscreen.

Even with updated textures and shaders, Borderlands graphics suck compared to H2A. The cell shaded art style is terrible. I doubt it takes much processing power to render..

Ooooooooh! I might get this for the remastered Borderlands 2! I'll be honest The Pre Sequel wasn't nearly as good, still a nice bonus anyway. Awesome News Squidward! #SoExcited

Borderlands pretty much is a large open world. Halo 2 Anniversary is reserved to only 1 map per game. There's ALLOT of stuff in the map in Borderlands compared to H2A.

Wait.... and I just realised Borderlands one isn't coming with this. :(

 

So, is it worth playing the original Borderlands first I must ask?

If you want to get a feel of the game yes, but Borderlands 1 is much different than Borderlands 2, Pre Sequel. I would suggest playing it when you have the time. :)
