Borderlands Is Officially Going 'Game of the Year' This OctoberS

Gearbox Software's runaway hit Borderlands is, officially, getting a "Game of the Year" style re-release, compiling anything and everything Borderlands into one complete, Claptrap-filled package.

Included in the Borderlands Game of the Year Edition release will be all four of the game's aftermarket add-ons—The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx and the recently announced Claptrap's New Robot Revolution—plus one new bonus map that is, according to Gearbox, "awesome."

Wonder if Gearbox will be able to squeeze any other surprises onto that disc...

We'll see! Borderlands' GOTY edition is scheduled for release on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC this October and will run you $49.99 USD if you buy for your Windows based machine, $59.99 USD for your console.

We'll be catching up with the folks from Gearbox at PAX this week, so keep an eye peeled for anything breaking from the show.
