Get Borderlands: The Handsome Collection For Free Before It's Gone (PC)

The latest free mystery game at the Epic Games Store is another AAA hit, and it's actually two games.


Fresh off of giving away Grand Theft Auto V and Civilization VI, the Epic Games Store is offering another popular title for free for the this week. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is up for grabs until tomorrow, June 4, at the same time. The collection comes with Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, so really you're getting two free games this week. To claim Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, simply sign up for a free Epic account and turn on two-factor authentication.

Normally, Epic reveals free games a week ahead of time, but during the ongoing Mega Sale, Epic has chosen to tease mystery freebies each week. Epic revealed Borderlands: The Handsome Collection as this week's freebie before its unlock time in a now deleted tweet. A leaked list of the mystery freebies has proven to be spot on so far, which leads us to believe next week's free game will be Ark: Survival Evolved.

Snagging Borderlands: The Handsome Collection from Epic will also net you a $10 off coupon--if you don't already have one--to use during the Mega Sale on any game $15 or more except for pre-orders. Each time you purchase a game priced $15 or more, you'll earn a new coupon.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection launched in 2015, compiling Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel as well as every piece of DLC. It earned an 8/10 in GameSpot's Borderlands: The Handsome Collection review. "Let’s be clear: You don’t have to be Handsome Jack’s number-one fan to appreciate Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. But even if you’re not, you will still find an impressive archive, chock full of dozens upon dozens of hours of laughter and exciting combat," critic Cameron Woolsey wrote.

You get to keep any Epic free game you claim forever, and there have been many great titles since the program launched in late 2018. We have a running list of every free Epic game that we update each week as new games are cycled into the program. In addition to Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, you can grab a new game from Devolver Digital for free at Epic. Sludge Life, a game revolving around a weird island covered in sludge, is free for the next year (really).
