Borderlands mapping out Game of the Year Edition Oct. 12
Gearbox Software's stylized postapocalyptic shooter compiling all four add-on packs later this year for $60 on 360, PS3 and $50 on PC.
Gearbox Software earned critical acclaim and commercial success for the stylized shooter Borderlands upon its launch for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC last October. To capitalize on that success, Gearbox has supported the game all year long with substantive downloadable add-ons, including The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, and the recently announced Claptrap's New Robot Revolution.
With the game's one-year anniversary rapidly approaching, 2K Games and Gearbox announced today that they would be collecting all four add-ons into a single Game of the Year edition. Set for release on October 12, the Borderlands Game of the Year Edition includes all four aforementioned packs for $59.99 on the Xbox 360 and PS3 and $49.99 on the PC, in addition to the original campaign. A "comprehensive" Borderlands map will also be included with the package.
Notably, the expansion packs are not included on the game's disc. Instead, the add-on content can be redeemed by way of download tokens included with the package.
The Borderlands GOTY Edition will be preceded by the game's fourth add-on, Claptrap's New Robot Revolution. Due for release in September, the content thrusts players into a civil war between the Hyperion Corporation and the Claptraps, led by the elusive Ninja Assassin. The Robot Revolution downloadable content adds new missions and enemies--including Claptrap-ified monsters--to shoot and loot, as well as new boss battles.
As with Borderlands' other add-ons, Claptrap's New Robot Revolution can be purchased individually through each system's respective online service for $10 (800 Microsoft points).
