Free Borderlands 2, Pre-Sequel Update adds 4K graphics to the beautiful collection



Borderlands fans can finally feel reassured knowing that Borderlands 3 is real, and those who are hyped and ready to re-enter the series will soon have reason to revisit the previous games. In addition to the other Borderlands news released during its PAX-East panel, Gearbox announced that it has released graphic enhancements for The Handsome Collection's games – Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel – and the Borderlands expansion 2 VR.

When the time came for the news to be shared at PAX, Gearbox's panel was hit by some unfortunate technical issues that hampered the launch of some supporters. Below you can see what the technical improvements are for the last two Borderlands shooters. These Ultra HD texture packs are provided for Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel on PC as well as for the Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (consisting of these two games) for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. Screenshots below.

There are some differences between how the texture packs work on consoles and on the PC. Console players get 4K and HDR support as well as textures, characters, and vehicles in Remaster environment, as well as improved anti-aliasing and improved shadows. The PC gets many of these things, but HDR is not mentioned, although the Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO) has been improved. The complete lists for each platform can be found below.

The Ultra HD texture packs are Available for free on all supported platforms. They will be released on April 3rd. Owners of PS4 Pro will find it as a single DLC package for Handsome Collection, while PC and Xbox One X players can individually download the packages for Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel.

Borderlands 2 VR PS4 improvements are also being made, as Gearbox is updating the PlayStation VR game around the entire DLC of the non-VR version. A free update that will arrive this summer will include Captain Scarlett and her pirate's loot, Mr. Torgue's campaign for Carnage, Sir Hammerlock's big-game hunt, and Tiny Tina's attack on the kite feasts.

Also, Gearbox's PAX East Panel brought some exciting news. Borderlands 3 is officially real and the studio released an improved version of Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition.
