Handsome Jack is on his way to Xbox One and PS4 with Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. What’s not to like?
Arriving in North America come March 24th and then internationally on March 27th, The Handsome Collection brings the full Borderlands 2 story, the full Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel story AND a ton of downloadable content for both titles (that’s over £180 worth of gaming goodness!), to Xbox One and PS4. For the first time ever you’ll get to experience both Borderlands titles in full HD and with a new cross-save system will be able to transfer your saved files straight into the next gen!
Additionally, up to four players can play together on a single television with four-player split screen – another first for the Borderlands 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.”
