Borderlands: GOTY Edition brings the classic shooter to PS4 and Xbox One next week

Gearbox Software has announced Borderlands: GOTY Edition, and it’s coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC on April 3.

The surprise remaster was announced alongside Borderlands 3 at PAX East 2019 during a delightfully disastrous panel put on by the studio.

Despite receiving a ‘GOTY’ treatment in the past, this rendition of Borderlands is far more than a simple port with shinier visuals.

Gearbox describes it as a “brand-new definitive version” that includes “improved lighting, textures, and character models” for modern platforms.

High-end PC users and players across PS4 Pro and Xbox One X can also expect 4K and HDR support for a superior visual experience.
