If you’re looking for something to play this weekend, and you’ve got a friend or want a decent loot shooter to soak some time up in, then I hope you’ve got an Xbox One.

As announced on the Major Nelson blog, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection – which contains Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, running at 1080p and 60fps – is free from October 27 to October 30.

It won’t be available after that point, but the Handsome Collection often comes up for cheap at retailers these days. So think of this weekend as an opportunity to get a good, hard look at whether you might want to pick up the Handsome Collection for Christmas (or as a birthday gift).

You’ll be able to play online for free on Xbox One this weekend without needing a Gold membership, so there’s that too.

Update: A friend has pointed out (thanks, Nick) that the collection is currently only $24 on Xbox One as well — although if it’s available for free, you might as well try it before making a decision.
