Play Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for Free This Weekend

We’re excited to announce that all Xbox Live members can enjoy Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for free this weekend.

Beginning on 07:00 a.m. PST, October 27th through 11:59 p.m. PST, October 30, Xbox Live members in Xbox One markets will get a special opportunity to explore the Handsome Jack saga, from his not-so-humble beginnings to the heights of his ego-maniacal tyranny. During this time, you’ll also have the option to purchase the game online from the Xbox Store at a 60% discount and continue playing. Explore the mayhem-filled world of Pandora and its moon in amazing high definition with smooth high performance frame rates never seen in Borderlands on consoles.

And to further celebrate this Borderlands event, on October 28 from 1pm PST until 2pm PST, you’ll get the chance to Game with Fame along with one of the developers behind the Borderlands franchise. James Lopez, producer on Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, will be on hand to play Borderlands: The Handsome Collection along with the Xbox team while taking your questions live on Twitch and Beam. James is like a Golden Chest of Borderlands information, so you don’t want to miss this event!

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is the essential Borderlands compilation and includes the definitive versions of both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, built specifically for next-gen consoles. Experience the absolute highest performance and highest fidelity graphics for any Borderlands game ever played on a video game console. For the first time in the franchise’s history, play four-player split screen on a single television, all in stunning high definition.

Over $100 in value and hundreds of hours of gameplay: includes all campaign add-ons, playable character packs, level cap upgrades, and assorted combat arenas previously released as downloadable content for both titles, plus dozens of additional character customizations.

All Gamerscore and Achievements earned during this event period are yours to keep, and your save and game data will carry on if you decide to take advantage of the special promotional pricing or buy the game another time down the road.

Xbox is also inviting all Xbox Live members without a Gold membership to play online with friends for FREE during the Multiplayer All-access event (October 27-30), whether you’re on Xbox One or Xbox 360.

You can download Borderlands: The Handsome Collection by clicking on the Gold Member area on the home dashboard or downloading directly from the Xbox Store.
