Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Announced for PS4 and Xbox One
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection has been announced for the PS4 and Xbox One, compiling Borderlands 2, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and all of the two games’ DLC in a nice bundle for current-gen consoles.
The games, created by Gearbox Software, chart the story of the series’ main antagonist Handsome Jack. The collection will allow those who played either Borderlands 2 or The Pre-Sequel to transfer their data over to the PS4 or Xbox One, regardless of whether you played the original games on the PS3, Xbox 360 or even the PlayStation Vita.
Another addition to the games is four-player split-screen, a first for the Borderlands series which allows up to four players to take on the games in local multiplayer.
The Handsome Collection will feature Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
Speaking of the collection, the president of the series’ publisher, 2K Games, said: “The Handsome Collection gives players the opportunity to experience the full arc of Handsome Jack’s rise and fall, from his not-so-humble beginnings on Elpis to becoming the tyrannical Hyperion CEO on Pandora, all in one value-packed bundle.
“This collection marks the Borderlands franchise’s official move to the next-gen platforms, and we’re proud to offer our fans the ability to continue playing with the characters they’ve built as they carry on adventuring in The Handsome Collection.”
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is set to release on March 24th, 2015 in the US and March 27th internationally for a retail price of $59.99.
