Gearbox Software has announced that new hot fixes for Borderlands: The Pres-Sequel and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection are now rolling out for all platforms (PC/Mac, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4).

What’s a “hot fix?” Allow Gearbox to explain:

In general, hot fixes are used to temporarily address issues between major updates. Hot fixes are not permanent — they are temporarily stored in memory during the game session and lost upon exiting Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel/Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. To ensure that you receive hot fixes, make sure that your system is connected to the internet when Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel/Borderlands: The Handsome Collection boots up.

Listed below are the complete notes for both the PS3 and PS4.
