Borderlands: The Handsome Collection packs in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (plus all DLC) and serves them up on the new generation of games consoles for the first time. Borderlands 2 Welcome back to Pandora! No, not the Pandora with the really tall aliens running around a la James Cameron’s Avatar. Nope, this is the mineral-rich Pandora in which players run around with anarchic glee, shooting everything in site and gathering as much loot as possible. So, what’s new? For starters, Gearbox added a number of gameplay features that can help you out in a pinch – the most direct one being a special perk that can be activated by hitting the trigger buttons. When you’re not pumping lead, your ammo is replenished over time too, allowing you to go on a proper killing frenzy when you’re nearly down and out. Insta-Health vials will only go so far this time around. What changes the game – in a good way – is the introduction of Badass ranks. While characters still have a level cap of 50, Badass ranks don’t have such a limit. When you level up in this manner, you earn a Badass token, which can be used to spend on increasing a number of base statistics. The genius here is that tokens spent to increase stats are applied to every single character you have on your profile. Add the mystery of golden chests, and the secret golden keys that require special actions to obtain, and you have a sequel that puts a lot of emphasis on the RPG side of things.
