With the release of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection now upon us, 2K have teamed up with UK retailer GAME to kick off a rather neat and not so little giveaway.
Basically, the first 20 players who have pre-ordered Borderlands: The Handsome Collection from one of four GAME stores will be handed a golden key when they visit that store on release day, Friday, March 27th.
Each of these stores has a unique custom loot locker you see, and is literally stuffed with Borderlands goodies (the fully RC controlled Claptrap is among them). Of the 20 keys which are distributed just one person will have the right key to unlock the locker and score all the goodies within.
Check out the full press release and details below.

About Borderlands 2
Developed by Gearbox Software, Borderlands 2 has sold-in over 11 million units worldwide, won more than 55 editorial awards and is the critically acclaimed sequel to the breakout original that invented a new genre, the FPS/RPG hybrid known as “shooter-looter.” Borderlands 2 features genre defining characters and skill trees, diverse environments, missions and enemies, as well as weapons and equipment with more personality than ever before. Four friends can team up online or split-screen to journey through the huge open world of Pandora to take down the notorious Handsome Jack and his corrupt Hyperion Corporation and experience the iconic story that takes place after the events of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
About Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is the latest entry in the critically acclaimed Borderlands franchise that was co-developed by Gearbox Software and 2K Australia. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel continues the franchise’s tradition of industry-leading co-op, allowing up to four players to experience the signature low-gravity, shoot ‘n’ loot gameplay on Pandora’s moon. Featuring four distinct playable character classes armed with powerful laser and icy Cryo weapons, players will battle against an array of fearsome enemies. Taking place before the events of Borderlands 2, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is a great introduction into the franchise, while showcasing Handsome Jack’s transformation into the ruthless tyrant fans loved to hate in Borderlands 2.
*Includes all available downloadable content for Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel as of March 24, 2015. Xbox Live or PlayStation®Network account as well as Internet connection is required to download certain add-on content at no additional cost.
