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: The Pre-Sequel
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."
