Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is a compilation of both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, including all additional content released for the games, remastered in 1080p. The compilation does not include the original game; however a HD re-release will be considered if the collection is successful.
The player has the option to transfer save data from the previous releases of the games. PlayStation 3 and Vita saves can be transferred to PlayStation 4, and Xbox 360 saves can be transferred to Xbox One.
The player is rewarded with 'Loyalty Rewards' if on the player's account data is found for Borderlands 2 or Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel for Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. Note that the player only qualifies for the rewards if he played either one of the games on the predecessor of the console where The Handsome Collection is installed. For instance, if you played Borderlands 2 on Xbox 360 but The Handsome collection on PlayStation 4, you will not qualify the Loyalty Rewards.
Unlike the original games, the games feature 4 player split-screen. When playing in this mode, the framerate will be reduced to 30, instead of the usual 60 frames per second.
