The Game of the Year Edition includes all 4 of the add-on packs so that you can enjoy all of the content from one of the Most Acclaimed Games of 2009 in one sweet package. “The Zombie Island of Doctor Ned” – The Jakobs Corporation would like to invite you to experience the splendor of a corporate owned small town known as Jakobs Cove.  Any rumors you may have heard about the “undead” walking our streets are completely preposterous and we officially deny them all.  “Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot” – Are you god’s gift to gun fights? Think you’re the best? Wanna prove it? Then help us celebrate the grand opening of Marcus Bank by killing hundreds and hundreds of people, the only competitive arena around where your next of kin can be assured that you’re coming back famous or not at all. (All proceeds are kept by us) “The Secret Armory of General Knoxx – Want more of the Borderlands story? Want more loot than you could possibly figure out what to do with? Of course you do! And with The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, you can have your cake and eat it too… if you’re not too busy playing this game. Rise up to become the ultimate loot pillager… or die trying. “Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution” – This destructive adventure invites you back to the inhospitable environments of Pandora to battle a vicious new threat; an ever-amassing army of homicidal Claptraps led by the cunning Ninja Assassin.

A sci-fi/action RPG from acclaimed developer Gearbox, Borderlands combines the best in first-person shooter (FPS) action gaming with elements of a traditional role-playing game (RPG). The excitement of this hybridization is further magnified by the game’s groundbreaking content generation system which allows for a near-endless variety in missions, environments, enemies, weapons, item drops and character customization, making the game’s single player, multiplayer and online campaigns not to be missed. This special Game of the Year edition takes the action even further with the inclusion of all four of the downloadable content releases for the game, as well as a fold-out map of all the Borderlands Pandoran territories.

Story

In a distant future, the planets at the outer edges of the galaxy have become a beacon to fortune seekers and those yearning for a better life off world, but there are no guarantees in deep space. Pandora, one of these distant planets, was reported to be rich in untapped mineral wealth, and so drew many hoping to get rich quick, but in the end little was found beyond the scattered ruins of a past alien civilization. With nothing to gain, any who could soon abandoned Pandora, leaving those who remained to deal with the lawlessness of a world gone bust, and the mystery of the long-dead alien civilization. But as chaotic as these times were, there were worse days yet to come. After several years the planet’s huge orbit slowly brought it near to its sun and once unknown and horrifying creatures sprang from their long hibernation to terrify the stranded colonists. The only hope of the colonists seems to be a vault discovered in a mountainside, rumored to contain alien technology and secrets about Pandora. Will this discovery be the colonist’s salvation or their end? Discover their fate in Borderlands.

Gameplay

As in a traditional RPG, Borderlands is built around the continual leveling of characters as they delve into quests. These quests include both story-driven adventures and side quests that offer players rewards such as items exclusive to quest completion and/or forward movement of the story. Players can look forward to action set in both single player and multiplayer modes–including co-op play–as well as vehicular combat, literally thousands of different types of weapons that change each time you play and randomly generated maps and map features.

Playable Characters

Borderlands features several playable characters, each with its own unique backstory, abilities and skills. Skills can be leveled up, allowing for improvement of things like health, accuracy with weapons and capacity for items. In addition to this, characters possess unique skill tree development, ensuring that each will develop differently regardless of time spend leveling them up.

Key Game Features

  • Co-op DesignBorderlands is built from the ground up to be an exciting, intuitive cooperative experience for up to four players simultaneously that rewards players who work together and invest in co-op skills. Split screen is also supported.
  • FPS Gameplay – In this role-playing shooter, choose one of several distinct characters, each with their own individual skill sets. As your character grows throughout this fast-paced FPS, you choose and customize your abilities to suit your style of play.
  • Art Style – The game’s distinctive art style combines traditional rendering techniques with hand-drawn textures to paint a bold and eye-catching spin on the FPS genre.
  • Vehicular Combat – Jump behind the wheel and engage in high-speed vehicle-to-vehicle combat, complete with spectacular explosions and road-killed Skags.
  • Frontier Planet – Search the wasteland planet of Pandora for the legendary alien vault. Fight your way through bandits, discover nine native (and aggressive) creatures, and help the few settlers on the planet in your search for a Vault rumored to contain a great prize – if it even exists.
  • Gun Lust – Choose from literally hundreds of thousands of weapons, each with their own manufacturers, specifications, and advantages. The revolutionary content generation system guarantees that you’ll find almost infinite tools of destruction to suit your play style.
  • Online Multiplayer SupportBorderlands supports 2-4 players via PlayStation Network.

Borderlands Game of the Year Edition for PlayStation 3

  • A copy of the standard Borderlands game for PlayStation 3
  • All Borderlands DLC add-ons packs available to date
    • Borderlands: The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned – Originally released as a digital content download, action in it is centered in the town and surrounding areas of Jacob’s Cove, which is on the fictional Jakobs Corporation owned Island unofficially named Zombie Island. Here players are tasked with the completion of 20 exclusive Borderlands missions, involving the zombie infestation of the island, as well as various optional side quests. As the name of the island suggests, players will be kept busy honing their skills at killing zombies, zombie bosses and the other undead beings as efficiently as possible. In-game money is earned for these kills and available weapons come both in the form of randomly generated weapons and unique items taken off defeated bosses. The level of undead action experienced is directly tied to players’ progression within the single player campaign within the main game, making for gameplay closely tied to the main game, and a zombie fest not to be missed.
    • Borderlands: Mad Moxxi’s Underdome RiotBorderlands: Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot is the second add-on pack for Borderlands re-released on disc following initial availability via digital download. Designed with a Mad Mad Thunderdome ethic and feel, action here occurs within a series of spaces known as riot arenas where the changing rules, commentary and mood are provided entirely at the whim of the over-the-top and seductive ringmistress, Moxxi. Within the matches, both single player against AI and multiplayer player, players rack up kills using a variety of weapons and shields, earning themselves skill points and in-game loot that can be stored at an in-game bank.
    • Borderlands: The Secret Armory of General KnoxxBorderlands goes to 11! You may have seen some games raise their level cap by 5, or maybe even 10, but with The Crimson Lance Assassination Squads wreaking havoc and Crawmerax the Invincible being all invulnerable and stuff we knew you’d need more than just 10. And that’s why Borderlands goes to ELEVEN. The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is an add-on pack for Borderlands that adds new guns, new class mods, new vehicles, new missions, new enemy types, and increases the level cap to 61. In other words…best add-on ever. Of all time. Forever.
    • Borderlands: Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution – To combat second hand sales of used munitions among greedy, haggling treasure hunters on Pandora, the Hyperion Corporation have decided to activate the Interplanetary Ninja Assassin Claptrap. Instead, it has organized all of the claptraps into a revolution, and they’ve been assimilating all life on Pandora and converting them into claptraps. With our heroes caught in the middle, they must stop the Interplanetary Ninja Assassin Claptrap in order to release his control over all of Pandora’s claptraps and collect their reward, of course. The pack adds 21 missions, 10 new skill points, three additional backpack slots and raises the level cap to 69.

    Borderlands GOTY CONFIRMED DLC ON DISC NOW!!!!, October 13, 2010
    By 
    That Review Guy (Earth.) –

    = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
    This review is from: Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition (Video Game)

    while I think this is one of the best FPS/RPG hybrids ever made,
    this is a crime that they couldn’t put the DLC ON THE DISC and instead included a lousy voucher for all four packs.
    I bought this to get everything on the disc like most GOTY editions (I already owned the regular ed.) so I felt a bit jipped however it
    comes with a great full map of pandora and that’s nice. if you have the regular edition no need for this BUT
    if you haven’t bought Borderlands yet this is THE BEST DEAL!
    and a heck of a game with 4 player online co-op, two player split screen
    and single player as well as playthrough the full game with or without friends once and then access PLAYTHROUGH TWO WITH HARDER ENEMIES AND VASTLY SUPERIOR LOOT!
    a must buy game without doubt. I’m just miffed they were too lazy to
    do as dragon age or the like (fallout 3 anyone?) and put the DLC ON THE DISC ugh. oh well it’s still some of the most fun to be had.
    and as of this writing it’s EASY still to this day to find online games and players. a FIVE STAR TITLE ALL THE WAY
    I took one star off the GOTY ed. due to no DLC ON DISC…
    it’s not that tough to do. 🙁

    EDIT: as of this edit 2/4/11 gamestop is confirmed carrying
    the new version of the disc with the DLC ON THE DISC NOW!! and even Gearbox
    confirmed this on their forums. I also bought another copy (yeah I love it that much!) and lo and behold you pop the disc in and highlight it and on the XMB you’ll see another disc with the DLC!!! now a worthy Purchase!
    still, they should have done this from the very beginning but to their credit, they could have ignored the issue entirely OR create an expansion disc such as the pc and xbox 360 versions are getting.

    5.0 out of 5 stars
    All 4 DLC now included on disc (Jan ’11), but caution, January 25, 2011
    By 
    Deuce (Florida, USA) –

    = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition (Video Game)

    I’m treating this as a supplemental game description; others have adequately reviewed the gameplay elsewhere. For those wanting a one-sentence summary: the DLC does appear on newer discs, but as of Jan 2011 it is difficult to tell if you’re getting a “new” DLC-on-disc version or the older version with just a voucher. (Maybe the content is on all GOTY editions and an update will unlock it one day?)

    I was torn before ordering from Amazon, but pulled the trigger on a buy 2, get 1 free sale. I’m new to the ps3 as of this Christmas and am having fun buying up older, established games for cheap. Borderlands fits perfectly into this category, so if you’re on the fence and want a quick push either way: BUY IT if this type of game is your thing.

    The DLC is now on the disc. I was VERY skeptical that it would be, as the (almost) unanimous consensus online said otherwise. Only a few recent posters claimed it was on there, and I dismissed them as trolls or uninformed. I bought anyway. The front cover of my game says very clearly at the bottom “Voucher for All 4 Add-On Packs.” On the back, in a yellow band? “Add-on game content requires a connection to Playstation Network and 4.41 GB of storage space to redeem SINGLE-USE VOUCHER.”

    I was bummed. I held out opening up the disc, on the chance that maybe a newer version had come out, and Amazon had sent me an older one. If some (newer) copies did have the DLC, I wanted that one! But I couldn’t find anything online about a new cover, omitted text, or anything else pertaining to the voucher.

    I opened up the game and popped it in – and there it is. Below the Borderlands game icon in the XMB (Playstation menu, NOT the game menu.. where I first looked). There’s a little disc icon that turns into an orange, one-wheeled robot labeled “BONUS CONTENT.”

    Sure enough, all 4 add-on packs appear here. The smallest is about 550MB, the largest is 1.6GB. No code needed… but a voucher code is still included. Mine was behind the map, before the instruction manual. I have not used it, but I did install the expansions to test – they install with no code and appear in-game (the menu tells you they’re available and you need to go to a fast travel station to get to them).

    As of this writing, the “most helpful” one-star reviews bash the decision to not include the 4 expansion packs on disc. I can understand this, considering other games (Fallout 3 GOTY, which I purchased along with Borderlands GOTY) DID put the content on there. It made the game feel disposable – once your voucher was used up, your resale is the same as the regular BL game. I am thankful for all those who complained. I can’t help but think someone somewhere heard your logic and agreed.

    Here’s the problem – as of now, there’s no way to tell what version you’re getting. I bought mine from Amazon so I can confirm that at least one batch of theirs has it – but that’s not to say everyone will get a “new” version. Same in-store. There was nothing physically on the outside that told me I was getting bonus content on disc. So until all of the old stock is purged, there are going to be some disappointed consumers. Even after that, there’s sure to be fraudulent after-market sales of used GOTY editions.

    Good luck in getting the version you want, and enjoy the game – I’m pretty stoked about the hours in Pandora front of me.

    ————-
    Until it becomes established knowledge that there are in fact “on-disc” versions, check Gearbox & 2K’s forums for official word. As of Jan 2011, I still feel things are speculative among the online community of BL players, even though I can personally confirm vouchers are not needed for the newest printings. This is what you get when game developers waffle, but I thank the powers that be for getting it right; sorry to those who “suffered” for the rest of our benefit. 😉
