Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Announced (PS4)

63 posts in this topic

 

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Bundles Borderlands 2 And The Pre-Sequel For PS4 And Xbox One
 
The original game is sitting this one out, but on the upside, four player splitscreen on a single HDTV.

 

 

 

2KGames have revealed Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, exclusive to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

This bundles in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, as well as all the add-on content, remastered from the ground up for both consoles. 2K promises they have built up the best high fidelity graphics and best performance for these games on these consoles. Of course, the original game had a sore lack of the Handsome one, so he didn’t make it in this one.

 If that’s not enough, you will also finally be able to play four player split screen on a single HD TV. 2K Games has yet to share a release date.

Haha. The author says 2K hasn't shared a release date but it is at the end of the trailer. March 27, 2015.

Hmm.  If that's the case, then I'll sell my PS3 versions of the games on eBay.  I was going to play the games within a few weeks or so.  I can wait a little longer to finish up a few games I've yet completed.

Great news. I have had Borderlands 2 downloaded ever since it was free on Ps plus but never played it and didn't buy Pre sequal yet. I guess I'll hold out on both now and get this.

Only games I'm interested in. I actually hated the first game with such a passion, it was just so boring! I couldn't get into it, yet, I highly somewhat enjoyed the second game. And I wasn't interested in the Pre-sequel, but now that it's being added to this collection, then I might as well try it out. I'm currently trying to 100% complete Borderlands 2, and might take me and my friend awhile to complete, so maybe we cold cross-save our progress from the PS3 onto the PS4

No original Borderlands? Pass.

Handsome Jack wasn't in the first game. This is his story told in a collection.

Yeah but I think calling it the Handsome Jack collection just to omit the first game is kinda of a cop out. Anyways, it'll be nice to play these games without texture and slow down issues. Didn't play Pre-sequel but i heard the story was decent enough.

Might give it a look, but TBH my backlog is huge right now. At least I have been proved right to my friends who believed them when they said the pre-sequel was last-gen only.

I am very excited about this.  I loved borderlands 2, and was looking forward to the pre-sequal, but didn't want it on the ps3.  I will buy this in a heartbeat.

I hope they give us the option of just buying one game separately, because i just want to play Borderlands 2.

..... haha, just like the Dragon Ball Z Budokai Collection, one of the original games in this trilogy won't be making it. It's pretty sad though, because even though the first game was lacking in a depth story, it shined in other fields and is very nostalgic. This is still pretty cool though, especially the Pre-sequel, a game made in the last gen's last life cycle (like The Last of Us), is coming to now gen.

I know this is a collection revolving around Handsome Jack, but omitting the first game means this'll be a definite pass for me. Was really looking forward to a port / remaster of the first game so I could play through it online with someone seeing as the servers for the original are down now.

The first game is an awful mess in comparison to the following games. It doesn't have any stake in the story due to it's lack thereof. Don't get me wrong, it was enjoyable. But you really aren't gaining anything by having that mess in the collection.

 

If it is based purely on trophy hunting, then I can see peoples points. But if it is based on having the complete experience, then the reality is - Borderlands 2 + DLC and Borderlands Pre-Sequel is the experience.

Well, considering the cash grab that Borderlands 2 was with all those "complete/season" editions which never had the whole content sounds interesting that this one has it all.

400$ for the CE.

All of my No.

I just bought The Pre-Sequel a week ago, and Borderlands 2 at the beginning of the month for PS3. Nope, screw it, I'm not backing down and selling them off. PS3 they stay.

Most clumsily put together 'remaster' I've seen so far.

 

- No Borderlands 1 because Handsome Jack isn't in it

- Probably no DLC included for the Pre-Sequel

- Nothing is probably changed graphics wise, except 1080p and maybe 60fps.

 

I've started Borderlands 1 + 2 on PS3, and I may get the pre-sequel on PS4 if it is sold separately, but this is a sorry excuse for a remaster and is a cheap 'upgrade' for quick bucks.

I'm pretty sure this remaster includes the season pass for the pre-sequel, so I think you get all the dlc that's been introduced so far and all the upcoming dlc that's included in the season pass

Everyone I know goes/went like this:

 

 

Borderlands HD Collection: Oh yeah! Love it! Can't wait!

 

 

Every other HD Collection: Wow, another cash grab. Screw next-gen and all these developers.

 

I am actually a fan of most HD collections of games that are not currently of this generation.

Considering I've never played Borderlands, this is very appealing to me. I'll have to play Borderlands 1 before this comes out.

Damn! I just recently bought the first BL on PSN sale, had BL2 for ages and never really had the time to complete either one of them or Pre-Sequel. Now I'll have to spend my money on these two because they're coming on PS4 dammit!
