Posted by Dave Letcavage

Coming in October

Today Gearbox Software and 2K officially announced that Borderlands 2 would be getting a Game of the Year Edition, which includes the base game along with all of the DLC that has been released up until this point. Set for an international release date of October 11, 2013, the game will be available on all platforms, but most importantly, it will be coming to the Xbox 360.

“For us and for fans, the love for Borderlands 2 has been nothing short of spectacular, so it's natural for us here at Gearbox Software to want everyone else to have a chance to experience the best-selling game and its most valuable expansion content," said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “The Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition offers more value than ever before in one package, giving everyone an opportunity to become a legendary Vault Hunter, and join in the award winning mayhem and fun."

This special edition of the game is said to be loaded with $100 worth of content, for an expected $59.99 price tag. Here's what is included:

  • Borderlands 2 Main Game
  • 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
  • Premiere Club Content;
    which includes: 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.

It seems to us like if you haven't gotten around to playing Borderlands 2 just yet, this may be the way to go. What do you guys think? Is this reason enough to bridge the border and enter unknown territories, or are you going to save your money for all of the incoming holiday releases? Leave it in the comments below.

Great news for people who haven't bought this game yet. I on the other hand bought this game and all the DLC the last time they had their sale on it so I am set.
