Surprise! Borderlands 2 is Getting a Game of the Year Edition


When Borderlands 2‘s downloadable content season pass ended, it was only a matter of time before 2K Games and Gearbox announced a Game of the Year Edition bundle for the smash-hit shoot-and-loot sequel. Hell, before the full game came out last year we all knew there would eventually be a Game of the Year Edition, whether the game deserved such an accolade or not.

If you’ve waited this long to buy the game, your patience will once again be rewarded.

Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition will be available for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 8th in North America and October 11th internationally, right on time for the next wave of not-included DLC. The $60 package will come with more than $100 worth of content, including the full game and the following DLC:

– Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty
– Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage
– Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt
– Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep
– Creature Slaughter Dome
– Krieg, the Psycho Character Class
– Collector’s Edition Heads and Skins
– Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 1
– Premiere Club Content (Gearbox Gun Pack, Golden Key, Vault Hunter’s Relic, and Gaige, the Mechromancer Character Class)

I sure hope a similar package is offered for next year’s PlayStation Vita version of Borderlands 2. Or at the very least cross-buy transfer of DLC for owners of the PS3 version.
