We strongly recommend that all players download it
The Xbox One version of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection has a 16GB day one patch, Eurogamer has spotted. That breaks down into a 3GB download for Borderlands 2, and 13GB for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
PlayStation 4 owners need to download an 8.3GB day one patch, meanwhile (thanks, Videogamer).
The hefty patch sizes are largely due to The Pre-Sequel's Claptastic Voyage DLC, which was completed too recently to be included on the Handsome Collection disc.
But a long list of bug-fixes and other tweaks have also been included, for both PS4 and Xbox One, developer Gearbox has also detailed.
"For The Handsome Collection, a large day-one update will be available giving access to Claptastic Voyage and Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2. This update will also address various bugs," spokesperson Marion Dreo said.
