Fans of the Borderlands series can be reassured, as the developer Gearbox announced the publication of Borderlands 3 during its panel PAX East last week. Also during the panel, Gearbox confirmed the remastering of Borderlands: edition of the game of the year. The remastered Borderlands: GotY was released yesterday, April 3, so you can download it now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. If you have the existing edition of the game of the year on Steam, you should have received a free update for the remastered version at 10:00 AM / 00:00 AM EST. Physical copies of the game can be obtained on consoles, but are limited to US and Canadian stores.

In addition, Gearbox shared many new information about Borderlands 3, including the confirmation of its release date: September 13th. We also received the first details about his playable characters.
When Borderlands: GotY was launched in October 2010, it brought together its four original downloadable content packs – Dr. Zed's Zombie Island, Mad Moxxi's Riot Underdome Riot, the secret arsenal of the general Knoxx and the new Claptrap revolution – in one package. This remastered version will do exactly the same thing, but will also bring new additions such as gameplay adjustments (such as a new mini-map, for example), a series of new guns, new character customization options, and more. Gearbox is also changing the campaign's latest template, making it "more appealing, challenging and rewarding".
In addition, an Ultra HD texture pack for Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is also available the same day as Borderlands: GotY. According to the official Borderlands website, the UHD texture pack will affect "characters, vehicles, weapons and environments". Gearbox has not specified how the UHD texture pack will affect the game. So it's hard to know if it receives more frames per second, if the graphics fidelity is better or both . You can get the free Ultra HD Texture Pack from PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, and Steam.
