Borderlands: The Handsome Collection releases today

It’s DLC launch-day at 2K Games and Gearbox Software, the companies are releasing ‘Borderlands: The Handsome Collection’ in North America for Xbox One, and the PlayStation 4. The Handsome Collection will be available internationally on March 27, 2015.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection bundles Borderlands 2, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and all downloadable content for both titles including the all-new add-on pack for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Claptastic Voyage and Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2.

The Handsome Collection is currently over $100 of value on prior gen consoles, but now with the high performance and graphical fidelity of next-gen consoles for $59.99. This value packed collection also features four-player split screen, a franchise first, allowing four friends to play together on a single screen as well as cross save functionality, giving veteran Vault Hunters the ability to transfer their saves and bring their leveled up characters from their prior gen console to next-gen.

“The Borderlands franchise continues to be successful, selling-in nearly 23 million units worldwide to date,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “New players can experience the complete story of Handsome Jack’s rise and fall in one package, while fans of the franchise can bring their Vault Hunters with them to the next-gen consoles and pick up right where they left off.”

Also available starting today are Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Claptastic Voyage and Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2. In this campaign add-on, Handsome Jack has found something ludicrously powerful inside Claptrap’s mind and digitizes the Vault Hunters to go in and retrieve it. In Claptastic Voyage, players will visit all-new locations, make new friends, loot never before seen weapons and more. The Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 is also included and raises the level cap to 70, giving each playable character 10 new levels, with 10 new skill points to earn.

The Claptastic Voyage and Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 is the fourth add-on pack for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and is the final pack included in the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Season Pass. All four add-on content packs in the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Season Pass are also available individually for $9.99. Like all Season Pass add-on content for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Claptastic Voyage and Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 will be included in Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.
