Update / Hot Fix Information -- PlayStation 4 (Updated 1/25/16)

A hot fix is automatically applied at the “Press Start” screen when Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is connected to the internet. In general, hot fixes are used to temporarily address issues between major updates. Hot fixes are not permanent – they are temporarily stored in memory during the game session and lost upon exiting Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. To ensure that you receive hot fixes, make sure that your system is connected to the internet when Borderlands: The Handsome Collection boots up.

An update contains changes that are permanently stored on your system and only needs to be downloaded once. You can download the latest update by launching Borderlands: The Handsome Collection while connected to PlayStation Network. You will be prompted to install the update if you do not already have the latest version. All updates are cumulative; you only need to install the most recent version to receive all updates.
