    Cool, a copy on Steam and now Epic. Can now play with friends who don't own it on my home network & spare PC:)

    You be surprised how hard it is to get people who don't Yet own a gaming PC to sign up for any platform to get free games for the future...

    Borderlands 2 had some nice Physx effects and the Tiny Tina DLC was some of the best ever.

    He is probably a rebel without a cause and just likes to contradict everything and everyone to generate controversy.
    And Thanks for the tip, Hilbert!

    Borderlands 2 + DLC is one part of what's included in The Handsome Collection, this of course includes the Tiny Tina DLC, which @Kool64 is talking about.

    The other part of the collection is The Pre-Sequel.

    These games have all been fantastic and are visually stunning. If you haven't played them, it's easily worth the download.

    I had a try of them again when I played the last DLC that was released before BL3, optimisation is piss poor and you can't get full 60fps on the high setting.

    Damn, my bad didn't know the DLC were also included in the deal. That's pretty awesome then. I do have everything Borderlands on Steam already, apart from BL3 (still on the fence).

    But this is a great little freebie for everyone.

    Yeah the Physx effects are missed very hard in todays titles. We actually made a few steps back IMHO

    Always played without pretending to set Physx too much high, always enjoyed, especially playing as Psycho in B2.

    Just with the physx setting on full though, as soon as you disable that 4k 60fps is easy

    I tried to replay BL2 a little while ago, and forgot how goddamn annoying Claptrap was.
