Totally a random thread, I haven’t played the original Borderlands in years upon years. I got it after it was released and fell in love, being a super OCD kinda dude it always bugged me that I never got the Mercenary gearbox gun pack. (Yes I know its useless but still, OCD) I used to check cases of the used games at Gamestop hoping to find an insert with a code and would periodically check online to see what they were worth on ebay. Well I gave up and stopped trying, eventually moving on when Borderlands 2 came out.
Today I downloaded BL1 on my Xbox one, the old 360 games on demand version they released for free with the games with gold promotion a long while back. My saves were still in the cloud and I loaded up my siren and it tells me I’ve unlocked the mercenary gun pack out of the blue. So I start up another character and bam, there they are. I assume they were added at some point to the base game?
Kind of cool, made me feel like my “collection” of Borderlands content was finally completed. A random story yes but it was pretty neat to find when I fired up the game after so long. Oh and there’s an option to upload my saves presumably to the new remaster, was this update recent? Seems odd that such an old title would receive an update after so long.
