2K and Gearbox Software Launch Borderlands Shooter Video Game

2K and Gearbox Software have launched Borderlands. Borderlands brings 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 PlayStation4 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. 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.
