If you need to get up to speed on the Borderlands franchise prior to the release of Borderlands 2, you can do so on the free if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber. September’s Instant Game Collection update includes the shoot and loot title on September 4th.
Borderlands 2 arrives on September 18th, so there’s ample time to trek through the game’s campaign and familiarize yourself with the original vault hunters. If you do make it through, Plus subs can also pick up the exceptional Borderlands add-ons at a reasonable 50% off as well.
We’re still waiting on more details about the expansion of PlayStation Plus coverage to the PS Vita, but Sony had previously announced that PS Vita owners would be seeing some benefit prior to the end of the year.
Look for Borderlands on the PlayStation Store in the September 4th update.
