Anyone know if there’s going to be any kind of charge for the update on the Handsome Collection? The remastered BLands is $30 so is the HC also going to cost?
Where did you see the remaster BL1? I’m on X-Box and nothing has dropped in the store yet… I did get a small update a few mins ago but nothing UHD.
It was just announced at the PAX East Gearbox Panel, but I don’t remember if they had a specific date for the announcement? There’s another big announcement coming April 3rd.
Edit: Trailer for the remaster:
The OP posted a $30 price tag so I was asking where THEY saw THAT. I’m looking on X-Box and still no Remaster on the store.
No, won’t be until April 3rd AIUI.
UHD update is free for Handsome Collection. Remastered BL1 is a “new” game.
I kinda understand why but it also sucks after the number of other remasters (Bioshock, Divinity: Original Sin and so on) where given free to owners of the original games.
I hope at the very least they offer a discounted upgrade option.
If you are playing on PC (and based on games you’ve listed, you are) I guess you don’t need to purchase Remastered BL1. It’s new only for consoles (PS4/XO), so players like me have to buy it, even if I own original BL1 for previous generation (PS3/X360). For me, it’s sucks, but if it’s not a full price I’m kinda ok with that.
As mentioned in the post above, there’s actually two things going on here. One is the remaster for current gen consoles, the other is the update to the version included with the PC Handsome Collection. If I understood the stream correctly, if you’ve already bought the PC HC on Steam, you’ll get the free update for BL1. I assume everything will be clarified on April 3rd though; no point worrying too much before then.
Go to Borderlands.com, click through the 3 panel header to get to Borderlands Game of the year panel, click pre-order.
Then you can pre-order a physical disk of the remaster for Xbox or PS4.
And keep in mind that the Handsome Collection remaster full beauty is only for Xbox One X and PS4 Pro. Those of us with Xbox One S’s or original Xbox Ones will not see it.
Dang! Mind you, they did say 4K UHD, and only the XB1X and PS4 Pro do that.
This enhanced version will be known as the Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, and existing owners of Borderlands 1 on Steam will be able to upgrade for free.
what??! only on the Pro.
Yup. It’ll work on the standard one, but you don’t get the UltraHD graphics.
I’ve ordered my Xbox X, but I also realized that I need a new 62 inch 4k display to actually see it in my game lair. Off to Best Buy tomorrow.
One of the good things about being old and having worked 40 years in the computer business, I can buy stuff on impulse
Cross play ps4 Xbox one?
Cheers to you and GrzesPL for the responses.
