Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is currently available for free on the Epic Games Store for a limited time, and we’ve got everything you need to know on how to get it on PC.

Borderlands is one of the more popular series in video games history, and you can now get two of its critically acclaimed titles for free. On May 28, Epic Games revealed that The Handsome Collection would be made available at no cost to everyone who wants to download it on PC.

The collection includes Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 2, as well as all of the accompanying bonus add-on content, which adds additional hundreds of hours of gameplay.

Combined, The Handsome Collection is priced at $59.99, but you can download it right now for free by visiting the Epic Games Store and clicking the yellow ‘GET’ button next to the game’s description.

This sale won’t last for long, however; as they’ve done with most past games, Epic are only making this deal available for a single week, which means it will expire on Thursday, June 4 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET.

Released in 2014, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel features a story that takes place between the events of the first two games – Borderlands and Borderlands 2. In this game, players get to see how Handsome Jack rose to power while getting to play as four of his henchmen: Athena the Gladiator, Wilhelm the Enforcer, Nisha the Lawbringer, and the robot Claptrap, “the Fragtrap.”

Borderlands 2, which made its highly-anticipated debut back in 2012, picks up the story following the first game of the series. There were five DLC campaigns released that add on to the game’s story, as well as two additional characters, all of which come as part of The Handsome Collection.

The Handsome Collection is the latest in a recent series of games that Epic have been making free as a surprise. They’ve been releasing free titles for a while now, ever since their PC Launcher made its debut back in December of 2018, but they would always announce the games ahead of time.

However, starting with Grand Theft Auto V a few weeks ago and Civilization V after that, they’ve been keeping the deals a mystery and waiting until the day of to announce which games will be free.


How to complete FIFA 21 Current TOTW Upgrade SBC

EA SPORTS have rolled out a new Team of the Week-themed SBC in FIFA 21, allowing you to stock up on TOTW players. So, here’s what you need to know.

For the most part, squad building challenges – or SBCs – are focused on giving FIFA fans the chance to unlock special variant cards of their favorite players. 

These are usually like Player of the Month, Flashback, Player Moments, Road to the Final, or a number of different promos, but EA also sprinkles in something different at times too. These unique SBCs can be focused on cosmetics like kits, badges, and stadium upgrades – but there are also the ‘lucky bag’ type SBCs too. 

These SBCs come out at different points of the seasons, and the rewards are either completely random or locked to one particular set of cards. This time around, it’s all about Team of the Week.

Current TOTW Upgrade FIFA 21 SBC requirements

The SBC, called the Current TOTW Upgrade, isn’t all that difficult to grasp. You’ve got to build one squad, and in return, you’ll be given a Team of the Week pack. Unlike the previous TOTW Upgrade, the pack you get for this SBC is locked to the week you open it – rather than the past few weeks. 

With the reward being pretty random – there is no set rating for the player you’ll receive – EA haven’t rolled out an entirely difficult SBC. No, it’s just an 83-rated team, so you can hand over quite a bit of fodder to complete it, if you’ve got unusable cards in your club. 

You will, though, need to also have at least 50 team chemistry when its all said and done – so it can’t just a pile of random cards. But, again, it isn’t difficult. 

  • Current TOTW Upgrade: Min.83 Squad Rating, Min. 50 Team Chemistry, 11 players in the squad. Reward: TOTW Pack. 

Cheap solutions for FIFA 21 Current TOTW Upgrade SBC

Now, if you haven’t got useless cards upon useless cards stocked in your club, you will have to fork out to get the SBC completed. Though, it’s not incredibly expensive.

According to FUTBin, starting it from scratch will cost around 20,000-24,000 coins. But, we’ve got a few solutions that should save you a few coins too. 

Aside from bagging a guaranteed TOTW Card, the SBC is repeatable, so you can try your lcuk over and over – providing you have the coins or cards to do so.
