Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is now available for free in the Microsoft Store. It’s a gift from Microsoft!
The two game bundle, which includes both remastered versions of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, mysteriously showed up on the “Ready To Install” page of Xbox Ones yesterday. On the Microsoft Store page, the game is currently available for no money. This was briefly the source of some confusion, however it has since been announced that it’s a free gift from Microsoft, as part of its Multiplayer All-Access event running over the weekend. The video description reads: “Play online with friends FREE AND enjoy a free game unlock of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection on us!”
Unfortunately for PS4 owners, the game is still $99.95 on the PlayStation Store for PS4. But whatever the occasion, free Borderlands is a good thing.
