Borderlands Remastered Bundle Coming to PS4 and Xbox One
The Handsome Jack Collection includes Borderlands 2, The Pre-Sequel, and all DLC; Release dates start on March 24; Old save files carry over.
2K and Gearbox Software have announced Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game will include Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel as well as all downloadable content for both games, all in high-definition.
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is scheduled to launch in North America on March 24, with an international release to follow on March 27. The game will support cross-saves, with players able to transfer save files over from the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. The cross-save functionality will only work for consoles within the same family, with the Xbox One supporting saves from the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 4 supporting saves from the PlayStation 3.
The Handsome Collection will also introduce an enhanced multiplayer split-screen option, allowing four players to play the game on a single television.
2K and Gearbox also revealed a Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition of the game available for pre-order, with 5,000 units to be made available worldwide. The Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition includes a copy of The Handsome Collection, a remote controlled Claptrap steward, steel case, and 12 lithographs.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel was released in October last year. The game was positively received in GameSpot's review, praised for its exciting combat and gorgeous environments, but criticized for its repetitive missions.
