Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is an amazing package which runs at 1080p 60 frames per second (FPS) on the base Xbox One. It contains the critically-acclaimed Borderlands 2 and the not-so-critically-acclaimed Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. While the games originally launched on the Xbox 360, this updated version is a blast to play because the shooting feels smooth and precise.
Today, Gearbox Software announced a number of Borderlands-related news. Aside from the fact that Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition is coming to Xbox One on April 3 — and Borderlands 3 is in development — the company revealed that Borderlands: The Handsome Collection was going to get a 4K patch for Xbox One X and other platforms. You can watch a trailer with the new visuals below.
Once the patch hits, the game is expected to run at 4K 60 FPS on Microsoft's latest console. Hopefully the performance will hold up because revisiting Borderlands 2 will be an amazing experience on a 4K display. While the current 1080p picture looks great, it's still blurry if you have a 4K device because it's being upscaled.
Borderlands 2 furthers the distinct blending of the first-person shooter and role-playing genres to create the true evolution of the role-playing shooter. Team up with up to three other players for four-player online goodness or go old-school with two-player split-screen couch sharing mayhem as you spend hours leveling up your character and equipping them with one of the millions of badass weapons. Borderlands 2 features a new visually stunning array of procedurally-generated guns, shields, grenades, artifacts, enemies, and more. Choose one of the four new character classes to be taken through a carefully crafted and connected story to all new and surprising environments across the living planet of Pandora.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is a role-playing shooter in the critically-acclaimed Borderlands series. Play as four all-new character classes while carving a path of destructive mayhem across Pandora's never-before-seen low-gravity moonscapes with all new moves, weapons, and vehicles! Contribute to the rise of the corrupt Hyperion Corporation and watch Handsome Jack's transformation from a man trying to do good, into a ruthless tyrant, constantly seeking fortune, power, and infamy.
In our review we said, "Borderlands: The Handsome Collection contains two of the best co-op first-person shooters ever, with a dozen diverse characters and the promise of hundreds of hours of gameplay. If you're tired of replaying the same few raids and strikes endlessly in Destiny, give the minimal repetition of these two huge games a whirl."
