Before you embark on a planet-hopping adventure in Borderlands 3, how about you take another mayhem-filled tour of Pandora and see where the shooter-looter genre was born? Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition is the best way to experience the series’ start—and you can try it for free this weekend* on PC (via Steam) and Xbox One (exclusively for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members).
Today through Sunday, July 21 (exact times listed below), you can jump into Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition on your PC or Xbox One to wreak havoc as the four original Vault Hunters. Lilith the Siren, Mordecai the Hunter, Roland the Soldier, and Brick the Berserker explore the desert wastelands of Pandora in search of a legendary Vault Key, killing hundreds of crazed bandits and collecting some killer loot along the way. Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition includes remastered Ultra HD visuals as well as new features like local co-op for up to four players and even a handy minimap, so it’s well worth revisiting even if you played Borderlands back in the day.
Free Play Available Until:
Xbox One: July 21 – 11:59 PM PDT, July 22 – 2:59AM EDT / 7:59 AM BST / 2:59 PM GMT+8 / 4:59PM AEST

Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition includes all four of the DLC add-ons, so in addition to the main campaign you can play through The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, and Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution. If you run out of free shooting-and-looting time and would like to keep playing, Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition will be on sale for 50% off until July 22 on Steam / July 29 on Xbox One**. All your progress will carry over, so you can pick up where you left off in the story and continue perfecting your favorite Vault Hunter’s build and weapon loadout.
