How to Get Borderlands Game of the Year Edition on PS4, Xbox One & PC
After many, many years of fans clamoring for the next installment in Gearbox’s looter shooter series, the developer announced Borderlands 3 at PAX East last week. It wasn’t the only thing they announced, however, with a Borderlands Game of the Year Edition also set to hit Xbox One, PC, and PS4 to reacquaint you with the series. Here’s how to get Borderlands Games of the Year Edition on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The first thing you should be aware of is that while Borderlands Game of the Year Edition (or Borderlands Remastered, if you will) releases today, on April 3, it’s not quite gone live just yet.
Gearbox shared yesterday, via the official Borderlands Twitter account, that the remastered version won’t drop on the PlayStation and Xbox Stores until 7am PT/ 10 am ET. As for those wanting to play on PC, the game will go live and the update will be made available at 10am PT/ 1pm ET.
How to Download on PS4 and Xbox One
Once the game goes live on the PlayStation and Xbox Stores, it’s simply a case of navigating your way to these stores and using the search option.
The official name of the game is Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, so be sure to search for this, rather than anything like Borderlands Remastered. We’ve broken down the steps to use the store search functions on PS4 and Xbox One down below.
- Head to the PlayStation Store tab from your home screen.
- Select the ‘Search’ option at the top of the screen.
- Enter ‘Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition.’
- Select the game from the results and purchase.
- Tab over to the ‘Store’ page with RB from your home screen.
- Select the ‘Search’ option and enter the name of the game.
- Highlight it from the results page to be taken to the store page and purchase.
How to Download Borderlands on PC
Grabbing yourself a copy of the game is a little bit different on Steam, especially for those who already have the former Game of the Year edition of Borderlands.
If you do, you’ll be able to download the update as of 10am PT/ 1pm ET when it goes live. Ensure you’ve got the game installed on your system prior to this so that the update immediately becomes available for you to download.
If you don’t already have the Game of the Year Edition, you simply have to search for the Game of the Year Edition, as you would any other title on Steam, via the search bar in the top right hand corner of the ‘Store‘ page.
Are There Physical Copies?
Depending on where you live in the world, we may have some bad news for you. In the same tweet that we’ve provided above, there are only physical copies available in the US and Canada.
Gearbox and publisher 2K has yet to officially announce whether or not physical copies of the game will come to other territories sometime in the future at this moment in time, but it is possible.
