Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Is The Latest Free Title On Epic Games Store


Rejoice, vault hunters! Epic Games has announced that Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is the latest title in their Vault to be completely free for a limited time. And yes, unlike the Far Cry 5 announcement from last night, this one *is* free to own even after the promotion ends.

Both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel are available in this double-pack of shooting and looting. Each title includes all of the bonus add-on content available, so if you've been itching for Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, this and every other major add-on for Borderlands: The Handsome Collection will be free to play between you and your vault hunting friends. All you have to do is head to the Epic Games Store and purchase the bundle for the low, low price of absolutely free.
