Avid Borderlands fans can head on over to the PlayStation Store and claim their free Ultra HD Texture Pack for Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, if they wish. You'll find the pack under 'add-ons' on the game's store page, or you can just search for it. To install it, you'll need the title's latest patch downloaded -- but don't worry, it's only a small one.
Ain't nothing small about the texture pack, though. It weighs in at a reasonably hefty 16GB on Sony's system. It is a bundle of super high-res visual assets, after all.
Will you be jumping back into Borderlands any time soon? Maybe you've only just picked up The Handsome Collection, or Borderlands: Game of the Year? Hoover up some loot in the comments section below.
Disgusting disregard for the consumer tbh.
Pointless for me cause I don't have a 4k TV and I have the pc version again the game plays how I want it I've no need to lose 16gb of space. Least they give you a choice to download it and not force it on you in patch 1.05
I mean it makes sense, it's new textures. And cut-scenes!
Bit chunky, but since I can take advantage of 4K and have plenty of hard-drive space, I'll download it when I get home. It will be a good excuse to play through these games... Assuming the first one is now available.
I’ll be downloading it to give it a go!
Never need a reason to jump in and play a little BL2! With it looking prettier it can only be a good thing.
Downloaded last night and noticed straight away how much more clear and vibrant the game is , also now supports HDR . But make sure you have the latest patch , as downloaded pack before it and was disappointed it looked no different
Don't think 16gb is too bad as it is for two games.
Going to buy the first game today from the store and go through them all.
OH! This is acutally exciting. I got the collection a few days ago, because I never played any B game, I'm hyped about the announcement of B3 and also because of these 4K textures.
But up until now I thought these were already there. So you telling me the game will look even better? I could not tell the game was in 1080p. Or was the geometry all fine, except for the textures?
Anyway, I'll jump on the PS4 to get the download running.
Bout the only game that really doesnt benefit
@Nakatomi_Uk maybe all devs should follow and give us the choice to download things like this or not, most devs just push content like this via patches even if you don't have support for 4k or not.
@get2sammyb I have it on Xbox and the file size only went up by 5gb, as for the textures you'd be hard pressed to notice the difference without a side be side comparison but the resolution bump is significant and the HDR is limited but things like Maya's phase lock really pops on the screen.
EDIT, just remembered the Xbox shows the 2 games separately which probably explains the huge difference between the two numbers
@kyleforrester87 you are joking right?
@Trotterwatch no, I’m outraged!
@kyleforrester87 Thought so, it was a simple lampoon.
@Trotterwatch you were lampooned!
@NintendoFan4Lyf What do you mean? Load times aren’t affected. You can play with low res textures and the loading times will be the same.
The Borderlands Collection is 4 years old. This download was made for Pro users, a system that wasn’t even announced at the time. This is a high res texture pack so that the textures and screen resolution increase to 4K. The loading times should be better on Pro, with, or without the download - That’s a given.
@kyleforrester87 The texture pack isn’t mandatory. The consumer can download it if they want. How is this disregard for the consumer?
Is there any point downloading this if i don't have a 4K telly?
