UPDATE: It appears, thanks to some handy NeoGaf users, that Borderlands is available as this weekend’s Free Play Days title. This is a promotion that Microsoft run every now and again when there’s some kind of sale on. The last one was Overwatch, but the program has also included Rainbow Six: Siege and Halo 5: Guardians.
Usually, this promotion is limited to Gold members, but apparently Silver members have been able to download Borderlands too (thanks, Eurogamer), so perhaps there’s more to this story. We’re still waiting on confirmation from Microsoft regarding this.
Original Post: Borderlands: The Handsome Collection has had a price alteration in the Microsoft Store appearing as a FREE download.
The Bundle includes the highly acclaimed Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel from Gearbox and 2K. Standout features of both titles include 1080p resolution, 60fps and all original DLC as part of the package.
At the time of press, it is unknown as to why this is currently set to free on the store. However after testing a purchase, I can confirm that it has been free to purchase and appeared within my personal Xbox downloads list.
Check out a trailer below:
Currently, it is not certain if this is priced free in error, or how long it will be free to purchase, however it is known as the ‘Unlock Bundle’. Let us know if you try to download the highly rated games, have you had any success?
