Borderlands Bundle – Free on the Epic Games Store
First it was Grand Theft Auto V. Then it was Civilization VI. As Epic Games continues to entice fans with free games on a weekly basis, the industry is wondering when the platform will slow down. It turns out that the company has no intentions of taking it easy. In fact, the Fortnite creator had quite the revelation: Borderlands the Handsome Collection is free until June 4th on the Epic Games Store.

Perhaps no other video game publisher has capitalized on porting legacy franchises than 2K Games. Best known for its NBA 2K franchise, 2K Games is home to a wide range of fan favorite to include BioShock, Civilization, X-COM, and others. Last week, the Epic Games Store featured Civilization VI as its exclusive free game. This week, Epic Games is touting 2K’s Borderlands: The Handsome Collection as a limited time free special. Until June 4th, players can access this Borderlands collection for free by clicking here.
For players unfamiliar with the series, Borderlands is a first-person shooter set in a cross between science fiction and a cowboy western. The series incorporates light role-playing elements while focusing on obtaining loot drops from enemies. This “looter-shooter” features randomly generated loot drops and contains hundreds of weapons and customized options.
There are currently four installments in the Borderlands series, and The Handsome Collection contains the second game as well as the “pre-sequel”. While the industry criticized the “pre-sequel,” the second game was critically acclaimed. Take advantage of this special offer while time lasts.
