For those of you who’ve yet to play the critically acclaimed Tales from the Borderlands – you’re in luck! All five episodes of Tales from the Borderlands are now available on disc! Gearbox Software, Telltale Games, 2K, and The Hyperion Corporation are bringing the whole game – all five episodes – to a shiny disc format you can buy in stores.
Back in January of this year, WeLoveFine.com (Link to http://www.welovefine.com/) in conjunction with 2K and Gearbox, launched a Borderlands Design contest to celebrate the announcement of “Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.” Artists were encouraged to create designs based on their favorite characters and elements of Borderlands, Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Almost 200 designs were submitted to the contest.
Launch Mayhem saw 32 of Pandora’s best battle it out – all based on your votes. The winners would get designed into Xbox One and Playstation 4 game consoles. After the smoke cleared, Lilith, Mad Moxxi, Mister Torgue, and Tiny Tina were crowned the Launch Mayhem champions.
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is out and Handsome Jack has got a job for you, Vault Hunters! Show us how psycho you are for Borderlands in a video and Jack will give up his golden couch set to the Ultimate Vault Hunter. That’s right, between celebrating the launch of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection – and Jack’s need to clean out his storage unit – he’s hooking up one lucky winner with his living room set! There is a lot of loot on the line, so let’s soak in some of this handsomeness in more detail.

"Janey Springs is a good-natured junk dealer. She's always got a kind word for everyone (especially Athena). A little while back, a buncha kraggons killed her girlfriend and nearly mauled Janey to death, but it's done nothing to sour her sunny disposition!"
"Is that a Bandit?' Then he slams you. He's not a bandit. He's a MOON BANDIT! Scavs are a dangerous bunch of moon hooligans, more sane than their Pandora brothers, but not by much. They are masters of low gravity combat, jumping, jetting, and slamming enemies all willy nilly."
"Jack's daughter. He protects her. Maybe he's a bit overprotective, but that's a father's right, isn't it? And maybe he manipulates her abilities to his benefit, but that's also a father's right, right? And maybe he's performed experiments on her...

-Brian Cozzens, Art Director Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
"Handsome Jack. A hero. The hero. He may look like a middle management worker at a huge corporation, but don't doubt the truth. This is a VERY HANDSOME middle management worker just waiting for the right opportunity. And if that opportunity involves lots of people dying, that’s fine. He can deal. Because that’s what heroes do. They win when lots of people die."
– Matt Armstrong, Borderlands Franchise Director
Set between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, you’ll play as four all-new characters fighting alongside Handsome Jack, witnessing his transformation into the ruthless tyrant you loved to hate in Borderlands 2.
