It won’t just support 4K resolution and HDR.

Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition for PS4, Xbox One, and PC – what’s new and improved
- More Firepower (new): A new set of six named, custom-skinned Legendary weapons make the base game’s arsenal even deeper. Beat bosses or gather Golden Keys for a chance to collect ‘em all.
- Badder Boss Battle (improved): In direct response to fan feedback, the campaign’s final boss encounter has been adjusted to be more engaging, challenging, and rewarding.
- Cosmetic Customization (new): For the first time, you will be able to customize your Vault Hunter beyond simply selecting a color scheme. Each of the four available characters has five brand new cosmetic heads unlocked and equippable right from the start of the game.
- All DLC: Zombie Island of Doctor Ned, Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot, the Secret Armory of General Knoxx, and Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution.
And if you played Borderlands 2 or The Pre-Sequel, you’ll get 75 free golden keys and random weapons to be used with your first new character.
