Borderlands: The Handsome Collection coming to Xbox One and PS4

2K Games has announced Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, which will arrive on PS4 and Xbox One in March.
 
Marking the first time the Borderlands games have been available on new-gen consoles, The Handsome Collection combines Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
 
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection arrives for PS4 and Xbox One on March 27 in the UK, priced at £49.99.
 
For that price, you get both full games and all the DLC for both games as of March 24 2015.

“The Handsome Collection gives players the opportunity to experience the full arc of Handsome Jack’s rise and fall, from his not-so-humble beginnings of Elpis to becoming the tyrannical Hyperion CEO on Pandora, all n one value-packed bundle” said Christoph Hartmann, 2K President.
 
Both games are being given the full HD treatment for their move to the Xbox One and PS4. In fact, 2K Games says this collection is the highest performance and HD graphics ever seen in the Borderlands series.
 
“This collection marks the Borderlands franchise’s official move to the next-gen platforms, and we’re proud to offer our fans the ability to continue playing with the characters they’ve built as they carry on adventuring in The Handsome Collection,” added Hartmann.
 
That’s because, if you’ve been playing Borderlands 2 or Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on Xbox 360 or PS3, you can carry over your levelled-up characters and their Badass Rank to The Handsome Collection – if you’re moving between the same console family anyway.
 
The Handsome Collection will also introduce four-player split screen local multiplayer – another first for the Borderlands series.
