Gearbox announced the Game of the Year edition of Borderlands recently via Twitter, to be released October 12 for 59.99 on Xbox 360, PS3 and 49.99 on PC. 3/4 of the DLC are reported to be on the disc, with the yet-to-be-released “Claptrap’s Robot Revolution” redeemable via a download token.
Perhaps the GOTY Edition Strategy Guide that surfaced last month will release along side this excellent value for anyone who hasn’t experienced Borderlands yet.
Not much information other than the above has been announced, though several sites are reporting that a huge map of Pandora will be included. See inside for what IGN is showing as the boxart, and the official Press Release.
