Borderlands gets a little bit more Handsome!

Written and Edited by Lynn Gerena


So Gearbox Software and 2K have been busy working on bringing some Pandora carnage to “current” gen-systems. They are throwing everything but the kitchen sink at us gamers.



Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is the essential Borderlands compilation and includes the definitive versions of both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, built specifically for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For the first time in the franchise’s history, play four-player split screen on a single television , all in stunning high definition. Experience the entire Handsome Jack saga (including all available bonus add-on content), from his not-so-humble beginnings to the heights of his egomaniacal tyranny. Continue the adventure by transferring your previous saves to the next generation of consoles with the new cross-save functionality.

Granted you can only transfer saves over from like consoles so basically if you played it on Xbox 360 then you can only import over to the Xbox One and the same goes with PlayStation consoles.

So here is the kicker and why should you The Handsome Collection?  Well you will get EVERYTHING that is associated with both games. Here is the rundown.

On top of the regular edition of the game which will retail at $59.99. The Handsome Collection is also receiving it’s own collector’s edition which will be Limited to only 5,000 units worldwide, the Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition includes a remote-controlled Claptrap steward robot that looks just like the in-game character! He is designed and detailed to look just like the Claptrap you know and love - or maybe hate - and now you have the power to control him from your iOS and/or Android device with a companion app called ClaptrApp. You will also be getting 12 lithographs of the Vault Hunters and the game will come in a steelbook case. The Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition will be available for $399 at selected retailers. Talk about a major price point on a collector’s edition. I unfortunately will not be able to afford my own claptrap due to my having reserved both the Batman: Arkham City limited edition and the Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector’s Edition of the games and those two combine will be close to what the Claptrap edition is. Snatch em up if you can because there is no way this won’t end up on a secondary market at an enormous price gouge.

The Borderlands: The Handsome Collection will release on March 24, 2015 in North America and March 27, 2015 internationally.
