NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 20, 2015-- 2K and Gearbox Software today announced Borderlands®: The Handsome CollectionTM, bringing the critically-acclaimed series to next-gen consoles for the first time and offering the complete story of the franchise's most iconic villain, Handsome Jack. The Handsome Collection includes Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel along with all of the downloadable content for both titles* - over $100 of value on prior-gen consoles, but now with the high performance and graphical fidelity of next-gen consoles for only $59.99. The Handsome Collection will launch in North America on March 24, 2015, and internationally on March 27, 2015, on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft.

For the first time on a console, players can experience Borderlands 2 and/or Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in HD - looking better than ever before. With The Handsome Collection, Borderlands fans can also continue their adventure right where they left off by transferring their saved files to the next-gen consoles with new cross-save functionality**. After hours of shooting-n-looting in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on prior gen consoles, players can carry their leveled-up characters and Badass Rank over to The Handsome Collection. Additionally, up to four players can play together on a single television with four-player split screen - another first for the franchise.

"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," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "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."

2K and Gearbox Software also announced today a very limited collector's edition, the Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition, which will include everything in The Handsome Collection as well as a remote controlled Claptrap steward robot, a collectible steel case, and 12 exclusive lithographs. The Claptrap steward robot is controlled through a smartphone app and can move in all directions while balancing on one wheel. The Claptrap can also say lines in character and live stream video to a mobile device through his eye. The Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition is limited to only 5,000 units worldwide and is available to pre-order starting today at participating retailers for $399. For more details on the Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition as well as The Handsome Collection, please visit the official Borderlands blog here: http://borderlandsthegame.com/index.php/news/borde...

4 player splitscreen? Cross saves? all DLC?

DAMN, this is tempting if I had a next-gen system.

Will still probably look like crap though

They should've included Borderlands 1

The announcement is really "empty".
Texture updates, Antialiasing, FOV, FPS? Where is all the essential information.

It is simple: 1080p and that's it.

And 60fps. And probably PhysX.

physx is Nvidia exclusive, the PS4 and xbone have AMD GPUs.

As a PC gamer, it's really really sad to see these silly remakes milking people's hard earned money. And some people have the nerve to say it's not about the graphics is about the gameplay.

The could port the physx effects, but they wouldn't need to:

Not that I'm making any assumptions here.

I stand corrected, but there is barely enough GPU horsepower for rendering the games at 1080p much less to throw in physx.

No physx to see in the trailer. So, pretty sure it's not in the game.

Apparently they are forgetting about Borderlands 1 because it didn't have Handsome Jack. He's like the Joker of Borderlands now.

although im a PC gamer it really irritates me to see people constantly moaning about people who say it's all about the game play and less about the graphics, every game that comes out should have great game play foremost and graphics after not the other way around, game play is the most important aspect of any game.

it's great next gen owners get to replay borderlands again just with the same great game play and crisper sharper graphics.

Tell that to Warframe.

We're talking about Borderlands. A game that has been ported on PS Vita.

    SplitTongue What a time to be alive ! Just shoot me will ya... (7 minutes ago)
  • SplitTongue
    SplitTongue WinDefender updates stopped working 2-3 weeks ago, so I guess it's connected. Bad thing is: I can't just simply do a rollback because of not enough restore points. Gonna have to resolve it manually :P (9 minutes ago)
  • SplitTongue
    SplitTongue Seems like a common problem on vista, win7, win server 2008 and even win10. (15 minutes ago)
  • SplitTongue
    SplitTongue @Sdarts: Figured the culprit is the service svchost - netsvcs which is eating up the RAM, but like you said with disabling it you only end up without any protection at all. (18 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts There's a way to disable it, but you also end up completely disabling Windows Defender and can't receive any new updates, so it's not ideal. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts many hours of downloading. I really hate the lack of control over when you want to update Windows 10, the system waits a day or two, but afterwards it decides on its own and screw the user. (1 Hour ago)
