Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition

The Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition is set to release Oct. 8 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC at a price of $59.99, 2K Games and Gearbox Software announced.

Aside from the full version of the game, the Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition will include all of the bonus content made available for the game. In addition to the four DLC expansions for the game, the special edition includes the pre-order exclusive Premier Club content, extra skins and character classes.

All four DLC packs were originally available in the Borderlands 2 Season Pass for $30, making the Game of the Year Edition’s $60 price tag a nice deal.

The Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition includes:

  • full Borderlands 2 game
  • Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty expansion
  • Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage expanison
  • Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt expansion
  • Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep expansion
  • Creature Slaughter Dome
  • Premiere Club Content
  • Gaige the Mechromancer Character Class
  • Gearbox Gun Pack
  • Golden Key
  • Vault Hunter’s Relic
  • Krieg the Psycho Character Class
  • Collector’s Edition Heads and Skins
  • Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 1

Borderlands 2 sold more than 7 million units worldwide across all platforms since it released last September. The first-person shooter was highly regarded by both fans and critics for its blend of action, online multiplayer, RPG-style skill trees, unique environments, memorable characters, captivating missions and one-of-a-kind enemies and weapons.

Gaming Illustrated awarded Borderlands 2 the elusive Editor’s Choice Award in the review. The game was also named Gaming Illustrated’s First-Person Shooter of the Year in the 2012 Game of the Year Awards.

While the Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition represents a good value for the loads of content released for the game throughout the past year, fans might be disappointed as it usually signifies the developer is moving on from the game. Without focusing on future Borderlands 2 content, Gearbox could potentially turn to a sequel.
