Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Now Available to Preorder With Amazon UK

on February 18, 2015 8:50 AM

Borderlands: The Handsome collection is now available to preorder for Xbox One and PS4 over at UK online retailer Amazon.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection contains the wonderfully zany Borderlands 2 and the equally outrageous Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

Originally released on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, The Handsome Collection gives players a chance to re-visit the murder-happy world of Borderlands on the next-gen consoles.

The product description on Amazon details the new features that will be present in the next-gen re-release, though it does seem that somebody got a bit too excited in writing it.

  • TWO CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED BORDERLANDS GAMES IN ONE PACKAGE – experience Handsome Jack’s rise to power in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and his reign as maniacal Hyperion CEO in Borderlands 2.
  • OVER USD100 IN VALUE AND HUNDREDS OF HOURS OF GAMEPLAY: includes all campaign add-ons*, playable character packs, level cap upgrades, and assorted combat arenas previously released as downloadable content for both titles, plus dozens of additional character customizations.
  • BORDERLANDS: THE HANDSOME COLLECTION SUPPORTS FOUR DIFFERENT PLAYERS ON A SINGLE SPLIT SCREEN – next generation power fully utilized!
  • PICK UP RIGHT WHERE YOU LEFT OFF! Transfer your Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, or PS Vita save files onto next-gen with cross-save**.
  • EXPLORE THE MAYHEM-FILLED WORLD OF PANDORA AND ITS MOON in amazing high definition with smooth high performance frame rates never before seen in Borderlands on consoles.
  • WITH OVER 55 EDITORIAL AWARDS AND OVER 20M UNITS SOLD, enjoy the most critically acclaimed franchise to ever include butt-slamming and a diamond pony.

Whilst some people whine and moan about re-masters, you don’t have to buy them but they’re a good option for those who maybe missed out on the original release and fancy dipping their toes in, and for £40 it’s not a bad offer.
