The Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition is now available for Xbox 360, PS3, PC and Mac in North America, with a global edition coming Oct. 11. A Wii U version is not planned. The Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition is a compendium of sorts comprised of all Borderlands 2 original and post-release content, but for the same price as the original game.
With the Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition, players can experience every epic boss battle, increase the level for each of the six playable Vault Hunters and play all of the additional DLC campaign content for $59.99. The retail cost would be more than $100 if purchased separately.
Specifically, here’s what the content looks like that’s included in Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition:
- 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 (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
For the Vault Hunters interested in real-life loot, the Borderlands 2 $100,000 Loot Hunt starts this Friday, October 11, at 11:00 EDT.
