We talked about Borderlands 3 a lot in the past few days, now it’s time we take a look at what is happening with the previous titles from the beloved series.

Console players will have to buy it fresh, but PC players will be treated to a free upgrade. The game of the year edition comes with a graphical update bumping the game up to 4K, improving lighting, models, and textures. It also adds six new weapons and player cosmetics, and it includes all of the DLC. So if you play on PC and you haven’t had any of the DLC yet, you get them all for free. It also includes a few quality of life updates, a Borderlands 2-like minimap has been added, ammo, money, and health auto-pickup and you can label weapons in your inventory as junk if you plan on selling them, or lock them, so you don’t sell them by accident.
