The Borderlands series caught the eyes of many a gamer last generation with its vibrant cel-shaded style, but imagine how good it could look with a new-generation remaster. According to a listing from the Australian Classification Board, that project could be on the way with Borderlands: Remastered Edition.
Here are the facts: A listing for Borderlands: Remastered Edition appeared on the website for theAustralian Classification Board. According to that listing, Gearbox Software and 2K Australia are the title’s authors, and 2K is its publisher. Outside of that, we don’t really know what a Remastered Edition would include, but we can hazard a guess.
It’s in Gearbox’s favor to re-release the first Borderlands game as the developer places an increasing importance on the series’ narrative with games like Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Telltale’s Tales From The Borderlands. That said, re-releasing just that first game, even with its sizeable DLC expansions, might not be enough for franchise veterans to double-dip. If Borderlands: Remastered Edition is in fact a real project from Gearbox and 2K, it’s possible that we could see Borderlands 2 and even the Pre-Sequel included to sweeten the pot.
