ESRB has just rated Borderlands Game of the Year Edition in the United States for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The title would set to be a remastered version of the first game in the series, coming to the newest platform.
We know Gearbox has a keynote at PAX East on March 28, where we should also learn the first details about Borderlands 3, so that could be the right occasion for the reveal.
Borderlands GOTY is being described like this at ESRB:
“This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a Vault Hunter (i.e., treasure hunter) on a quest to uncover an alien vault on the planet of Pandora. Players explore an open-world environment and interact with characters, while completing mission objectives. Combat missions require players to use futuristic firearms (e.g., acid pistols, electrical shotguns, grenade launchers) to kill human bandits, alien creatures, and robotic sentries. Battles are frenetic and accompanied by screams of pain, gunfire, and large explosions.
Human enemies emit large splashes of blood when shot and killed; some attacks may result in dismemberment and/or decapitation. The game contains frequent instances of mature humor, sometimes suggestive/sexual in nature: radio advertisements for male-enhancement products (e.g., “Do you ever feel like you are firing blanks?”); dialogue and text about body parts and other innuendo (e.g., “Really ‘preciate you takin’ a poke at that…uh, the system, not my mom”; “And pop! Went the weasel. I like it when things pop.”). The words “sh*t” and “a*shole” are heard in the game.”
With the GOTY releasing this year, it could be a good way to reintroduce people to the franchise in the wait for a Borderlands 3 launch in 2020.
