Xbox One, PS4 Get Borderlands: The Handsome Collection

Posted by 125805786 on

Borderlands Handsome Collection Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel are playable on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One thanks to the availability of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, a collection that consists of both games and, thus, provides the definitive way to experience the full story of Handsome Jack. Set to arrive on March 15, 2015 with a retail price of $59.99, The Handsome Collection allows players to transfer their save data over from their PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita or Xbox 360 consoles to a console “within the same family” using cross-save functionality, effectively bringing over all character data (e.g. levels) and your “Badass Rank”. In addition to Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, The Handsome Collection also comes with every single downloadable content released up to March 24th 2015, including campaign add-ons, level cap increases, and the various character customization packs. It introduces a new local 4-player split screen multiplayer feature that lets you and three friends play both titles Nintendo 64 style. Everything runs at 1080p and a steady 30 frames per second during split-screen gameplay and at 1080p and somewhere between 50-60 frames per second when playing single-player. For those that must have everything, there will be an extremely-limited (only 5,000 will be made) collector’s edition package called the Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition that can be yours for $399. It adds to the regular collection 12 exclusive Vault Hunter lithographs, a collectable steel case and a remote-controlled Claptrap steward robot that can be controlled with an iPhone or Android app. The robot has iconic voice samples from Claptrap, as well as a working camera in his “eye” that streams directly to your phone. Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to purchase Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel individually for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, leaving The Handsome Collection as the only available option. But that’s not to say a remastered version of at least the first game won’t be released eventually. Watch the trailer and let us know if you will get Borderlands: The Handsome Collection...
