This news is unlikely to shock you. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is coming to current-generation consoles. What may be a surprise though is that itís not alone.

Gearbox is also updating Borderlands 2 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 bringing the pair of titles together to create The Handsome Collection. For those of you who have been playing Borderlands 2 on last-gen systems, you wonít have to leave your progress behind either.

If youíve been playing Borderlands 2 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, or Vita, you can move your character progress and badass rank to the current-gen system in the same family. The same goes for The Pre-Sequel (though not on Vita, because it isnít on that system).

The Handsome Collection also sports four-player split-screen for the first time. Both games will run at 1080p and up to 60 frames per second. In four-player split-screen mode, target frame rate is 30 frames per second.

Both titles come with all announced DLC. For The Pre-Sequel, this includes the remaining two pieces of the season pass that have yet to be detailed. We now know they are a campaign add-on and another character. Scroll all the way down for the full list of everything you get.

In addition to the standard edition, which will retail for $59.99, diehard fans might be interested in the collectorís edition. The Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition comes with a steelbook case, twelve lithographs (one for each vault hunter), and a remote-controlled Claptrap.

The Claptrap model is fully operational and rolls on a single wheel. It has a camera in its eye and connects to an iPhone ClaptrApp so you can control it and see what it sees. These are limited to 5,000 units, so if you want one, youíre going to need to move quickly.

Our Take
The absurdly extravagant collectorís edition aside, $59.99 is a fair asking price for both games and every bit of content thatís been released. I donít know that Iíve ever want to play four-player split screen, but for those that miss the days of crowding on a couch for FPS fun, this is great. Iím definitely interested to see how this looks on current-gen hardware.
