Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition is a remastered and expanded version of Borderlands, a 2009 game mixing the FPS and RPG elements. The title was created in cooperation between the authors of the original (Gearbox Software studio) and Blind Squirrel Games. The creators enriched it with the content from all DLCs: The Zombie Island of Doctor Ned, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx and Claptrap's New Robot Revolution) and a number of improvements that slightly alter the technical layer and gameplay mechanics.

Plot

In Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition players get the planet Pandora. The main characters are the Vault Hunters, who travel through this inhospitable world in search of a mythical crypt; the gates to it open once every two hundred years, and it is said to hide countless riches.

Mechanics

Before you start playing Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition you have to choose one of the four available characters - Lilith (with supernormal abilities representing the Siren class), Brick (who is a Berserker), an excellent sniper named Mordecai (who is accompanied by a predatory bird - Bloodwing), and Roland (as a soldier he is the most universal character).

During the game, players observe the action from the first person perspective (FPP). The authors provide players with an extensive territory divided into a number of locations, where one can walk or drive the vehicle. Within them players carry out various tasks (both missions pushing the plot forward and side quests), as well as face hordes of enemies. One eliminates the latter using a wide arsenal of firearms, and the further one progresses, the move forward, more and more powerful tools of murder come into their hands. In addition, one can use the special abilities of each hero; while Brick falls into a combat frenzy, Lilith can become invisible, Mordecai invades his winged companion's enemies, and Roland can set up an automatic turret shooting at enemies. Players earn experience points for completing different activities, and after collecting the appropriate amount of them - they advance to next levels, so that their combat potential is gradually growing.

While working on the Game of the Year Edition, the authors introduced a number of improvements, including, above all, a minimap based on the Borderlands 2, improved equipment screen, and finally automation of the process of lifting ammunition and first-aid kits. In addition, six previously unavailable legendary weapons have been added to the game, and the player can change not only the colours of the outfit of the controlled character, but also their face.

Game modes
