Via their Twitter accounts, both 2K and Gearbox have confirmed the speculation and announced that a GOTY edition of Borderlands 2 is to be released October 8th in US and 11th for Europe and other regions.
President of Gearbox Software, Randy Pitchford, had this to say: “For us and for fans, the love for Borderlands 2 has been nothing short of spectacular, so it’s natural for us here at Gearbox Software to want everyone else to have a chance to experience the best-selling game and its most valuable expansion content, the Borderlands 2 GOTY Edition offers more value than ever before in one package, giving everyone an opportunity to become a legendary Vault Hunter, and join in the award winning mayhem and fun.”
The GOTY Edition will feature all the content from the Borderlands 2 Season Pass. So thats both the Mechromancher and Physco character classes, all 4 Story expansion packs: Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt and the recently released Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep.
It will also come with the bonus content of character heads and skins found in the Collectors Edition of the game and to finish this amazing GOTY Edition, the Premier Club content of the Creature Slaughter Dome, Gearbox Gun Pack,Golden Key and Vault Hunter’s Relic is included.
It works out as £80 in content for the standard game price of £39.99 which is a bargain for everything Borderlands 2.That is some serious content to bundle with the main game itself and all at a much reduced price for the game. 2K and Gearbox did the same for the first Borderlands GOTY Edition and it seems that this is the most complete version of a Borderlands game edition yet.
