NEXT GEN MAYHEM HAS ARRIVED
“Directive one: Protect humanity! Directive two: Obey Jack at all costs. Directive three: Dance!“ -Claptrap
Borderlands 2 is hands-down one of the greatest co-op gaming experiences there is, and if you disagree, chances are you have not played it. And with the announcement of The Handsome Collection back in January, we only have to wait a little longer to enjoy all that is new coming this time around to PS4 and XBO.
[dropcap size=small]F[/dropcap]irst and foremost, it should be noted that finding a game for Xbox One and PS4 that supports local player offline co-op modes has been remarkably difficult, and there are probably less than I can gather on one hand when I think about the ones that do offer it. So when GearBox shared that this would be something that they would be adding it to both the Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 2, on both next/current generation consoles, needless to say, I was ecstatic.
Initiate 4-Player-Co-Op-Couch-Potato Mode!
The game also supports the ability to migrate your existing badass character save files to the newer version of the games, though you will need to keep it within the same console family. So for those like me who went from an XB360 to a PS4, looks like we will have to start all over… OH WELL! I prefer starting all over and experiencing the HD Re-Master from the very beginning.
To add more bang for you buck, the single-disc multi-game collection includes all the DLC for both games, across the board. Two new Vault Hunters, 4 campaign editions, level cap increases, and customization packs up the a*s for Borderlands 2, and the Season Pass for The Pre-Sequel AND ANYTHING EVER MADE FOR BOTH GAMES. IT’S SO MUCH CONTENT, WE CAN’T EVEN.
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY ERIDUM.
The Handsome Collection does support cross-platform saves, so you can enjoy your Borderlands 2 game on the go with the PS Vita, or your Pre-Sequel game on… your home console (there is no PS Vita version).
The game will only cost you $59.99 for either console, and is definitely worth every penny, even if you owned the games beforehand. So much new, so much old, so much awesome.
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection comes to the PS4 and XBO on March 24.
WE CAN’T WAIT THAT LONG!
