About this game

Content Rating: Mature
So, you’re ready for another story, eh? Well, every story must start at the beginning, and this story begins here, on Pandora! And, like most stories worth telling, it begins with a Vault… Years ago, people spent their whole lives chasing the legend of the Vault, not knowing if it was anything more than a fairy tale. That all changed one day when four Vault Hunters, guided by a mysterious guardian Angel, found a Vault Key. Or at least, a piece of one.

The original Borderlands — what is captured in Borderlands: The Game of the Year Enhanced — shows of the magic and creativity of the last generation. A unique, unusual comic book-like art style, with adult humor, and a story that sets up a universe with an infinite amount of possibilities. There are many imitators, but none as genuine, creative, or momentous as what initiated the Borderlands series. And if you are at all excited about playing Borderlands 3, this is required playing before it releases.
You’ll have a blast shootin’ and lootin’, and only those without a sense of humour will be able to keep a straight face throughout it all. Thanks to its revamped visuals and a wealth of meaningful gameplay improvements, Borderlands Game of the Year Edition is without a doubt the best way to experience a classic. Gearbox couldn’t have done anything better to get players in the mood for more Borderlands action later this year.
The game’s enhancements and quality of life improvements are wonderful, not only making it look much better and more refined, but giving it a management fluidity that the original version lacked. You’ll need to forgive some delayed rendering and the odd drop in framerate, but for the most part, the entire package holds up remarkably. Putting it simply, Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition is the best way to play Borderlands on console.
