For fans of Gearbox’s original co-op shooter slash lootfest Borderlands, a new post by Xbox’s Major Nelson confirms that not only will the game be supported by backward compatibility (BC), but its numerous additional content will be too.
A big factor in Borderlands’ popularity has got to be due to the substantial post game support provided by Gearbox through downloadable content which helped keep the title in gamer’s minds much longer than many games released at the time. And seeing as the game did not make the cut for the Xbox One title Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (which included the sequel as well as the “pre-sequel) this is a great deal for Xbox One owners.
The game will be available to all when BC exits preview in November. Those that are part of the preview can check it out now.
