By Sam Quirke, 1 month ago
If the Borderlands series passed you by, you may be wondering why there's so much excitement and hype for the next instalment Borderlands 3, arriving later this year. Here's your chance to start at the beginning, as the recently released Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition is going to be free to play on Xbox One this weekend.

Borderlands Free Play Days

The Game of the Year Edition brings the original 360 game to the Xbox One with all of its original DLC and also includes 4 player local and online co-op. It's Xbox One X Enhanced with 4K Ultra HD. It'll set you back 14.66GB to download so it's worth getting a headstart as soon as it becomes freely available, expected later today. Here's a link for when the free period goes live, and also to buy the game at a discount until the 30th if you enjoy your time with it:
