PAX East was loaded with announcement s, but one of the most important ones was the official unveil of Borderlands 3. Gearbox, the studio which created the franchise, has also announced that enhanced versions of the previous games will be offered, including the Borderlands GOTY editions for free for PC owners. Now, Borderlands GOTY edition is available on PS4 and Xbox One, the free PC version to follow later today.
Many gamers credit Gearbox with the creation of the first and most popular looter-shooter experience. Borderlands arrived as a breath of fresh air on a market which was saturated with boring military shooters which attempted to emulate the success of AAA titles like Call of Duty and Battlefield.
The beautiful cell-shaded style, fun gameplay, and exciting storyline made it a quick hit. Four DLCs added challenges, zones, and weapons that made the game even better. The most enjoyable part is the hunt for new guns, but Gearbox made the right choice when they opted to avoid the bleak attempts at morality which tend to appear in many titles.
Borderlands GOTY is now available
The unique action skill of each character encouraged players to make several trials before they found the one which suited their needs. A choice of three talent trees allowed players to customize their experience and invest in features which complimented their ideal combat strategy.
A Game of the Year version of the game was released in the past, bundling the base game and the four DLCs in one attractive package. The new Borderlands GOTY edition is now available for the PS4 and Xbox One as a digital download. PC gamers who already own a copy of the game on Steam will have the option to update their version for free later today.
Besides some much-needed graphics updates, the remastered version will include some gameplay tweaks, a selection of new weapons, additional skins and extra content. The final boss has been revamped to make the fight better and the rewards more satisfying. Those who own Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, will have the option to download a UHD texture pack.
