  • Collector’s Edition Heads and Skins
  • Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 1

Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox, has this to say about the GOTY Edition:

For us and for fans, the love for Borderlands 2 has been nothing short of spectacular, so it’s natural for us here at Gearbox Software to want everyone else to have a chance to experience the best-selling game and its most valuable expansion content. The Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition offers more value than ever before in one package, giving everyone an opportunity to become a legendary Vault Hunter, and join in the award winning mayhem and fun.

Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K, then talked about Borderlands 2, which has sold approximately seven million copies worldwide:

The success of Borderlands 2 has been tremendous, and the game is on-track to become the highest-selling title in the history of 2K. With the Game of the Year Edition releasing this fall, fans will have the opportunity to get their hands on the most comprehensive Borderlands 2 bundle at an incredible price.

The Game of the Year Edition doesn’t include the new DLC that was detailed yesterday.
