The hype is building around Borderlands 3 as its September 13 release date draws closer, but if you haven’t had a chance to play any other games in the franchise or would be interested in owning them on PC, here’s a great opportunity: Digital PC key retailer Green Man Gaming is currently offering Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for only $3. That’s a full 95% off the bundle, which still sells for anywhere between $15 and $60 elsewhere.
After purchasing, you’ll receive a Steam key, so you must have a Steam account to redeem. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection also has full controller support on Steam, if you prefer to use a controller over a mouse.
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection includes remastered versions of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, with the latter taking place between the events of Borderlands and Borderlands 2. The compilation includes all DLC for the games, including additional campaigns and playable characters. With online or local split-screen multiplayer for up to four players, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is an excellent multiplayer game for anyone’s collection, although you can play it solo as well.
In GameSpot’s Borderlands 2 review, the game received an 8.5. “Borderlands 2 doesn’t reach far beyond its predecessor’s scope, but it does do almost everything better,” wrote critic Chris Watters. “Additions, refinements, and fixes all combine to create an appreciably improved experience, one that fully delivers on the promise of the first game. While Borderlands felt empty at times, this sequel is bursting with content and brimming with life, making it an absolutely delightful way to spend hours and hours and hours of your free time.”
Meanwhile, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel earned a 7 in its review. “Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is different enough to separate itself from the shadows of its older siblings. Elpis provides some gorgeous scenery, and the low-gravity environments bring an exciting new dynamic exploration and combat,” critic Cameron Woolsey wrote. “No, it never reaches the furthest edges of space, but Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel still offers some the best of what the series has to offer: good loot, good laughs, and good times for many hours.”
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection will be on sale for $3 until this Friday, June 21, or while supplies last. The deal has already sold out once since it first appeared last week, so grab your Steam key fast if interested.
