Borderlands 2 Game of the Year edition announced, contains lots to shoot

In a dance as old as time itself (or at least, as old as the mid-2000s), Gearbox have announced the inevitable Game of the Year super-bundle for Borderlands 2. As is tradition, the package will shepherd all the current DLC bits alongside the main game into a single release. In Borderlands 2's case, that means an absolutely absurd number of things to shoot with increasingly bizarre weapons.

Hey, guys! What's in Borderlands 2's Goaty edition?

  • Borderlands 2 Main Game

  • Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty

  • Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage

  • Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt

  • Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep

  • Creature Slaughter Dome

  • Gaige, the Mechromancer Character Class

  • Gearbox Gun Pack

  • Golden Key

  • Vault Hunter's Relic

  • Krieg, the Psycho Character Class

  • Collector's Edition Heads and Skins

  • Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 1

A lot of stuff. Interestingly, not all of the stuff, though. Gearbox have further plans for new content , including a second Vault Hunter Upgrade pack, increasing the level-cap 72, and the further adventures of T.K. Baha. Does this mean there'll be another bundle years down the line? Borderlands 2: Game of the Decade edition may be pushing the self-congratulatory naming scheme a tad too far.

It's still a quality package, filled with some excellent DLC bits that cheerfully warp the main campaign. Borderlands 2: Game of the Year edition is due out October 11, for some as-yet unannounced amount of moneys.
