Microsoft surprised Xbox Live Gold members today with a new free game for members in Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for Xbox One and Xbox 360. The offering is not completely random, though, as it comes alongside the Multiplayer All-Access event running from October 27-30.The event grants free access to all Xbox Live members across four days, which is also how long the game will be given away.
The event grants free access to all Xbox Live members across four days, which is also how long The Handsome Collection will be given away. Major Nelson announced the event today via his blog and mentioned offering The Handsome Collection as an example of a great multiplayer experience.
“Experience the highest performance and highest fidelity graphics for any Borderlands game ever on console, and invite your friends over to enjoy the game’s four-player split-screen mode, all in stunning high definition,” Nelson said.
The Handsome Collection came out early last year and includes both Borderlands 2 and its subsequent spin-off Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Back in April, Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford confirmed that Borderlands 3 was officially out of pre-production, following their less-than-successful shooter/MOBA hybrid Battleborn.
