Borderlands: The Handsome Collection’s Huge Day One Patch
It's going to take a little while to load up the plethora of guns and bullets you get in Borderlands: The Handsome Collection with its massive launch patch.
Would-be Vault Hunters who load up Borderlands: The Handsome Collection will be surprised when they try to start their new game. VG247 reports that if you're the proud owner of an Xbox One you'd better prepare to clear some space on your hard drive because while the PlayStation 4 patch will still require some space at 8.31GB, the Xbox One patch will require even more at 13GB. Plus, Gearbox is strongly recommending that players download the patch before they play the game, for seamless gameplay. If you're wondering why this patch is so large, you can check out the statement from a Gearbox spokesperson below:
For The Handsome Collection, a large day-one update will be available giving access to Claptastic Voyage and Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2. This update will also address various bugs. Although the update is large (as it's adding an entire and brand new add-on campaign), we strongly recommend that all players download it before playing The Handsome Collection.
The reason that the Claptastic Voyage DLC and Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 were not just included on the original disc is simply because they weren't yet released until recently. They were just recently finished, which is what prompted the update. You can check out the patch notes here and here for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions respectively. Not to mention, The Handsome Collection includes all of the major DLC expansions and characters that both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel had.
