With Borderlands 3 now only a few months away from release, this summer is the perfect opportunity to catch up on the history of the series. Luckily, Amazon is offering the digital PC download of Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition for only $7 today. Now at one of its best prices ever, this deal saves you $23 off its regular cost there. Once purchased, you’ll gain access to download this game via Steam instantly.
Borderlands combines aspects of role-playing games with a first-person shooter, while offering online co-op play for up to four players. In the game, you explore the Pandora wasteland in search of the legendary Alien Vault while battling dangerous enemies, discovering the planet’s nine native creatures, and helping a few of the settlers you’ll meet along the way. This Game of the Year edition of the game packages the original Borderlands with all four of its DLC packs, including The Zombie Island of Doctor Ned, Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, and Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution.
Over at Metacritic, the game received a Metascore of 81% based on 37 critic reviews. Its summary there notes one feature of the game that should offer a new level of replayability too — its “unique content generation system allowing for near-endless variety in missions, environments, enemies, weapons, item drops and character customization”.
