Borderlands 2 getting Game of the Year Edition - Report

Game of the Year Edition reportedly includes all previous game content; no word on bundling of upcoming DLC.

by

Tipsters at US retailer GameStop suggest that Gearbox Software may be readying a Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition, as reported by IGN.

The bundle is believed to include all of the game’s previously released content, playable characters, pre-order incentives, and raised level cap.

These include: Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt, Mr Torgue's Campaign of Carnage, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, Creature Slaughter Dome, Psycho Pack, the Mechromancer Pack, and the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack.

No mention was made as to whether the new collection will also include the upcoming Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2, Digistruct Peak Challenge, or next piece of downloadable content, TK Baha's Bloody Harvest. A release date has not been confirmed.

A 2K spokesperson was unavailable to verify the rumour at time of publication. Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition launched one year after the original game went on sale.

It's probably cheaper to buy all the DLC on xbox live, and a used game copy from amazon.com.  It may require more hardrive space, but it's totally worth it.  Game makers have become pretty money hungry it seems, especially Gearbox.  But, nonetheless I absolutely love BL2 regardless of gearbox's nickle and dime game business.

"but Complete edition implies that the game was not originally complete" yup, like killer instinct that can't be complete with one character.

And this is why you don't buy games when they initially come out in this day and age (unless you really like the franchise and are willing to pay more). If you want the complete package without paying through the nose you have to wait for the game of the year edition.

Allright!!!  I actually was tempted by GOTY by not buying this game over the last year...so maybe i'll buy it then.

Well I'm sure they could come up with a creative name specific to there own game. Tacking on "game of the year" is misleading and basically a lie in most cases.

@Cristopher Not every GOTY editions include everything. As an example, bioshock 1 & 2, Warhammer 40K...

"No mention was made as to whether the new collection will also include the upcoming Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2, Digistruct Peak Challenge, or next piece of downloadable content,"

That would be pretty lame- releasing a GOTY which is incomplete, and you need to purchase additional content.

Lame.

Otherwise, great news.

Or the Borderlands 2 WUB WUB edition

No one should hold their breath on a version that will ever include UVHM2 or the three head hunter packs they are coming out with. I bet this game of the year edition will still be more expensive than some of the digital sales that Amazon and Steam have had for PC for BL2 and the season pass.
I have 250 hours and counting on this game, so it was money well worth spent.

I agree, but Complete edition implies that the game was not originally complete, reminding the consumer of the ethical gray area that DLC resides in. Plus Game of the Year is a great way to sell boxes in a store I'm sure, even if it is blatantly lying in some cases.

this game is dead , they can keep it with any future dlc,
it was fun while it lasted but BL1 was the better game imo

With the way Gearbox has been going, should we expect a Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition 2 in another year?

This was pretty much confirmed months ago, why is it just now getting an announcement?

I smelled GOTYE from a mile away... even after they announced a "season 2" of DLC

I paid £20 for BL2 including the season pass, still happy with the purchase and definitely got much more than my money's worth.

GOTY edition without all the DLCs wouldn't be GOTY...

Robin Maximilian Furthersbe

Yup, that's why already worried let's hope they don't start a trend with that to even deliver unfinished GOTY's in the future

This is why I wait for the games when they toss DLC every month.

Congratulations to all the people who waited, and didn't wasted a lot of money like me lol

@Nova_Prime_85 People actually said they weren't going to release this? Shit, I knew it was coming before the game ever came out.

@oskuuu Dear lord, you mean there's more DLC coming? Christ I don't think I can remember another game that got so much DLC(maybe Blands1). I think one reason they make so much DLC for these games is because it's the only game they can do right. They need some new "creative minds" or just downsize and only make Borderlands.

@Peter_EaterYeah, that's not fair to us late adapters that willfully wait until everything is included in one cheaper-than-main-game package.

@3v1LR0n1N 

Hell I smelled it as soon as they said there was going to be dlc around the launch date.

@radprofile Yea my friend bought it on black friday last year and I played it and loved it but saw all the dlc coming out and said screw I will wait for a game of the year edition and here it comes.

@Strategizer

Sounds like me only I didn't get all that far maybe like 8 missions in then stopped playing it and then saw all the DLC coming and have now said fuck it I'll wait for the real GOTY and get the whole experience (and return my original version)

Seems I'll be waiting at least another year for that though.
