Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel packaged together on 27th March

Ever since we announced Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, nearly every fan I’ve heard from at trade shows, on Twitter, in the comments, or on the forums has asked one question: when is it coming to PS4? Well, we appreciate your patience, and today we have some good news for all of you: not only are we bringing The Pre-Sequel to PS4 on 27th March, but Borderlands 2 is coming along with it! Both titles will be available in one package as Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.

The Handsome Collection has both games running in gorgeous HD and looking pretty damn great, at a resolution and performance level never before seen in Borderlands on consoles. Beyond that, The Handsome Collection also has another cool first for Borderlands: four-player split-screen! Yup, four friends can hang out on the couch and play in split-screen on a single TV with The Handsome Collection, in Borderlands 2 or The Pre-Sequel.

Have you already started Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and/or Borderlands 2 on PS3 or Borderlands 2 PS Vita? Don’t worry: using Cross-Save functionality, you’ll be able to transfer your save to and from PS4 to pick up right where you left off, along with your levelled-up character, Badass Rank, and everything else you worked so hard for.


But what about the DLC? Well, that’s all included, too. Yup, The Handsome Collection includes ALL of the add-on content for both Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel, which is a heck of a lot of stuff. To give you an idea of just how much we’ve stuffed into that little box, here’s a list of everything you’ll get in addition to the base games:

  • Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty (campaign add-on)

  • Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack: The Holodome Onslaught (level cap increase & challenge arena)
  • Shock Drop Slaughter Pit (challenge arena)
  • Upcoming Season Pass Content (playable class)
  • Upcoming Season Pass Content (campaign add-on)
Back when Borderlands 2 came out in 2012, it launched alongside a pretty extravagant Collector’s Edition that some of you might have been able to snag. With Borderlands 2 and all of its add-on content coming to next-gen, we knew we had to top ourselves. And so, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection will receive an extremely limited Collector’s Edition, the Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition!

Limited to only 5,000 units worldwide, the Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition includes a remote controlled Claptrap steward bot that you’ll control with a companion app from your iOS or Android device. You’ll be able to play voice samples of some of Claptrap’s most iconic lines and look through a camera to see where Claptrap is headed, all while you control his every move (while balancing on one wheel)!

The Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition also includes 12 really cool exclusive Vault Hunter lithographs, and a collectible steel case, it’ll be available for €349.95 at participating retailers and we recommend getting a move on it if you’re interested — we don’t expect these to last long.

Lastly, we’ll be talking more about The Handsome Collection during our panels at PAX South this week, and I hope we’ll see some of you in San Antonio. Even if you can’t make it, stay tuned for more details leading up to launch.

See you on Pandora and Elpis!

One to add to my list. I was definitely going to get the Pre Sequel anyway, wouldn't have bothered with BL2 but if there's a bundle......

Can't argue with that as value for money, unless you were there right from the start of the franchise and have already played them all that is.

I have been into borderlands from the start and had it on multiple platforms, this series is great. I do have the Pre Sequel but haven't played it yet, DLC has been great value for money over the series and added so much to the story without making you bored.

I would buy it but own all of the games and most of the DLC already :D

Think this may be a purchase for me. I thoroughly enjoyed the first Borderland :)

I've got this on preorder. @Jenxy_ and I are starting to get a bit overexcited already. Not sure if Missy is going to team up with us yet but we may have a space or two free if other peeps want to coop it with us.
If anyone still has the first Borderlands on PS3 we're going to boot it up for a play through probably starting on Tuesday (we'll have all the DLC as well), so feel free to drop in if you fancy it and see us playing it, or message to say you're up for it beforehand and I'll let you know what time kick off is.

I'll be avoiding this.

Top game but i'd want to play this at top level and no-one else in SNR seemed to want to get to that point on the first two titles on PS3.

Also I've played B2 and all of the DLC from the first season pass.

You won't want to play with us then. Didn't make it all the way through the first Borderlands as I was late to the party and everyone was on Borderlands 2. We played through BL2 and started another play through on Vault Hunter but I can't remember if we finished it on that. We didn't go for any specific trophies just played for fun. I expect we'll do the same this time around as well.

We played the first Borderlands last night and it's fab so I'm going to actually see if I can play through it all before the PS4 Handsome collection hits. If anyone fancies joining feel free to do so!

With more money at hand, this would be something I would look at. I'm more and more interested in the co-op part of gaming.
As for now, I have to settle with GTA5 (witch is great fun).

I'll definitely be picking this one up. I just got my new PS3 yesterday and started playing through the first Borderlands again but I should be through it fairly quickly.

We're quite the way through now, but if you see me on come join. You can always use it to level up. Think we're playing Weds next about 7:30 UK time. Did you get the DLC as well?

Thanks @Plaxinator. I've completed the game numerous times on previous accounts and know it like the back of my hand. I'll have it finished this week.
Yes, I have all the DLC.

@Plaxinator, yeah, it's easy. After you complete the second playthrough (or play with someone who has), you can be level 69 in less than 30 minutes.
