‘Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition’ brings every DLC under one umbrella in Oct.

Borderlands 2 Handsome Jack

Borderlands 2 GOTY boxBorderlands 2 is set to be repackaged as a Game of the Year Edition bundle that hits stores in North America on October 8, 2013 for $59.99, according to an announcement from 2K Games and Gearbox Software. In addition to 2012’s base game, the set also includes all four story DLC add-ons – Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s BootyMister Torgue’s Campaign of CarnageSir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, and Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep – as well as the Krieg and Mechromancer character packs, the first Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack (the first level cap boost), the Creature Slaughter Dome (a one-time pre-order bonus), heads and skins from the original Collector’s Edition release, and all of the Premiere Club content from the original launch window release.

Yes, that’s a lot. Missing from the bundle are all other heads/skins packs (there have been several) and the second Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack, which is set for release on September 3, as we revealed earlier this week. Also absent is TK Baha’s Bloody Harvest, the first of three confirmed “Headhunter” DLC releases. We’re still not sure when that newly confirmed add-on arrives or what it will cost, but the Halloween theme suggests it’s due in October, likely later than this GotY release.

2K and Gearbox will be at PAX Prime with Borderlands 2 to give fans a first look at Bloody Harvest, a single-mission DLC pack that culminates in a boss fight with the Pumpkin Kingpin. The whole idea with this release, as well as the other Headhunter packs, is to pit players against a boss that leaves behind a new head to wear once its been defeated. You can probably guess what the Pumpkin Kingpin’s head looks like. HINT: It’s not a mango.
