PlayStation Plus: Borderlands 2 Free for Members

Kristine Steimer's Avatar Posted by Sr. Community Specialist

Borderlands 2, one of 2012’s most critically acclaimed titles, is entering the Instant Game Collection tomorrow. Pick one of four new vault hunters (I went with Maya the Siren) and grab your randomly generated weapon, ‘cause a pesky psychopath called Handsome Jack is terrorizing the world of Pandora (but hey, he does it in style). Borderlands 2 excels in co-op mode, so team up with up some friends to explore the land. There are plenty of things to mow down for experience points and nothing feels better than a rare loot drop, plus you can customize your character to dish out more damage or provide support for you & your friends.

You can take advantage of all these PS Plus benefits after PlayStation Store updates tomorrow.

PlayStation Plus Update 12-10-2013

PlayStation Plus: Instant Game Collection

Borderlands 2 (PS3)

Free for PS Plus members

PlayStation Plus - Borderlands 2
A new era of shoot and loot is about to begin. Play as one of four new vault hunters facing off against a massive new world of creatures, psychos and the evil mastermind, Handsome Jack. Make new friends, arm them with a bazillion weapons and fight alongside them in 4 player co-op or split-screen on a relentless quest for revenge and redemption across the undiscovered and unpredictable living planet.

I already have Borderlands 2 on disk, but I can’t play it since my disk drive went out. It’s an amazing game and I recommend it.

TrickishDonkey said:

Edd-Doloroso said:

December 10th, 12:00 pm

3 PM Pacific Time? Ah c’mon.

Looking forward to buy Tomb Raider :3 ( I want to see discounts on Journey !!!)

Not getting the PSN Plus pricing of $3.75. It keeps showing in the cart at $7.49. What gives?

Sports_Boy_17 said:

December 10th, 12:01 pm

At what time does it update Pacific time. Because its already 3:00 and not updated yet.

Edd-Doloroso said:

December 10th, 12:01 pm

@255 They didnt update PSN yet. 3 PM Pacific Time..(California)

burntt0ad said:

December 10th, 12:03 pm

@253 that’s bull they always update their store by the time i’m awake which is 11 am to noon. it’s 3 pm (est) and borderlands 2.

kmetek said:

December 10th, 12:06 pm

come on it’s 9pm here in europe!!!!!!!!!

TrickishDonkey said:

December 10th, 12:15 pm

@258 i always had to wait till after 3pm est to see the store updated, it was a rare if they updated before that.

poolmav45 said:

Hey: Just an idea

Honestly, I wish you would include an option for the free games that would enable gamers to purchase that game for a small rate so you could keep that game after the subscription ends.

For example, at an 80 percent discount from PS Store prices (which are usually) higher than they should be. So if they give for free a $20 game, then the price to buy it at would be $4. But you have to buy it while it’s available as a free download and not after it has been taken off the ICG list.

Just a thought!

S1_D22 said:

When will it be available in Canada? I see none of these offers on my PS Store.

Edd-Doloroso said:

December 10th, 12:24 pm

Yeap its a mess,they don’t tell exactly when they are going to update the store.

They say ‘tomorrow’.. Would be great if tomorrow was EXACTLY TOMORROW , 12 AM.

kmetek said:

December 10th, 12:38 pm

some of the games are live :DDDDDDDD

DIFUNTO666 said:

December 10th, 12:45 pm

where is borderlands 2 free? I cant see… and when I search for it the store shows me that I have to buy…

Chill out guys, it’s coming when it’s ready. For those of you who have twitter Playstation always announce the store update is live on their feed when everything’s good to go. Tune in there if you’re looking for a sure fire sign of when the stores ready.

rudetoy said:

December 10th, 1:06 pm

Interesting. I now see “Borderlands” in the IGC but it looks like the 1st game, not “Borderlands 2”. Hmmmmm…..

EverythingOnFire said:

December 10th, 1:26 pm

@ rudetoy (comment #267)

I just noticed the same thing. Hope they realize the mistake and get on it soon. Been looking forward to downloading BL2 since I heard about it yesterday.

DragonusFirus said:

December 10th, 1:26 pm

I think they should start announcing that the store updates on Wednesday. Every single week, folks start the conversation with “where is the stuff”, “what gives..” and so forth, like 2 hours before the store updates.

The stuff will be available WHEN the store updates. If it takes 3PM Pacific, so be it; if it takes 10PM pacific, so be it. Learn to be patient. Most of us, with a day job, know that its easy to say, “why dont you this or why dont you do that” but difficult to actually implement. How about this – why dont you patiently wait until they update? eh?

Didact328 said:

December 10th, 1:27 pm

I think someone screwed up. The first Borderlands just showed up in the free games section of the store instead.

theveggiejerk said:

December 10th, 1:29 pm

My store shows Borderlands 1 not 2

Didact328 said:

December 10th, 1:30 pm

Anyway, Borderlands 2 is now free. You just have to actually search for it until they realize their mistake.

Palmitaoo said:

December 10th, 1:32 pm

Hi I’m having a problem with the store Rocksmith 2014 shows up in the main screen for 29.39 for plus members, but when i click to buy it comes back to 59.99 anybody else having this problem?


December 10th, 1:33 pm

I live in California it’s not 3Pm yet LoL

mestephen77 said:

December 10th, 1:40 pm

The store just updated and the original Borderlands is posted as a free game, but I see no sign of Borderlands 2. Was this a mistake?

FallenAssassin_9 said:

December 10th, 1:50 pm

When I went to the Instant Game Collection Borderlands 2 wasn’t there and instead was Borderlands and it wasn’t free for plus

snarls200 said:

December 10th, 1:51 pm

nice price for spelunly

Aad3x said:

December 10th, 1:51 pm

Just search for Borderlands 2, is free already, guess is just an error in IGC list

JuniorPear said:

December 10th, 5:07 pm

Great prices on most games. Picked up NHL 14 for that insane price. Can’t even get that price for a used copy when the new one releases the following year.

Amazing Spider-Man, on the other hand… for a game that released a year and half ago with mediocre review ratings at best… $35 is a bit ridiculous. Must be some licensing thing?? Considering you can get a new hard copy from Amazon for less than this “sale” price, AND other games like Bioshock Infinite, which released just this year with a Metacritic rating of 94 going on sale for under $15, the Spider-Man price point just doesn’t make sense.

lmavs41l said:

December 10th, 5:58 pm

Is it worth it to buy Tomb Raider? I know the sale price is awesome but I’m not too sure if I’ll enjoy the game cause I’ve never played any Tomb Raider series before..

wank_muffins said:

December 10th, 7:31 pm

Is there any way I can purchase a game now and download it later when i have hard drive space available?

AidenEdmonds said:

December 11th, 2:41 am

No one from Playstation has been clear on this… Will Borderlands 2 be available to PS+ Members in the EU?

kmetek said:

December 11th, 4:00 am

spelunky is fun !!!!!

282: you must ask in EU PS.

Valderon_NWS said:

December 11th, 9:51 am

when was this supposed to be happening i’m not seeing borderlands on my PS store for free yet?

DedValve said:

December 11th, 10:22 am

Just bought spelunky on my vita and am now downloading it on my PS3, so exciting!

Also when will we learn about week 3 sales? Will it be the day week 2 sales go down or will we have a 1 day notice?

I’m tempted to use whats left of my $20 psn credit (after spelunky) towards Tomb Raider (it comes with Quantum Conundrum doesn’t it?) but I want to be on the lookout for any week 3 sales.

When does this week sales end anyways? I’ll probably just wait till the last day.

Lefoul-123 said:

December 11th, 10:45 am

They didnt warn us about the sales expiring, I missed ni no kuni.

Lefoul-123 said:

December 11th, 10:47 am

They made a mistake and named the games entering as the ones leaving, and I…

DedValve said:

December 11th, 10:57 am

I purchased Spelunky on the Vita but when I go to my PS3 to download the PS3 version it only downloads the vita version which I cant use?

Does the cross buy not work if you purchase from a vita?

Borderlands 2, add to cart -> 29,99. Never checkit out for free. What happen to the psstore?

El_Borracho_CGT said:

December 13th, 7:06 am

i got borderlands 2 on Tuesday without any problem, already downloaded. is the US store gonna give us something on 24 like the EU, i’m hopping for DMC like the EU store

germy333 said:

December 13th, 7:08 am

Seems that is fixed. I purchased for free the Borderlands 2 few moments ago. Thanks Sony!!! ^ ^

rockphantomMG said:

December 13th, 3:58 pm

Will the PS3 edition of Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed be available for PS Plus Members in January? I’m hoping it will be. Thank You!

hazelcabug said:

December 13th, 8:57 pm

Putting Borderlands 2 on IGC is a VERY BAD MOVE by sony. This will jeopardize the incoming borderlands 2 on vita. Who else would buy a vita version for 35.99 or 39.99 if players already get it for free on PS3.

Coody-Baroody said:

December 14th, 7:28 am

@hazelcabug – 294

You make an EXCELLENT point mate n ive been thinking for a while that Sony now WANT to kill off the Vita n be done with it. Just look at their decisions with game releases this past year n their awful sales figures as a consequence.

Killzone Mercenary, meant to be Vitas killer app n the shooter we have all been waiting for. Released the same week as GTA V and with non existent advertising or marketing of ANY kind. Sales are barely over 100k to date. When COD BO Declassified has sold almost 1million it shows you how badly Killzone is doing.

Next we have Tearaway. Another amazing game thats been let down terribly by Sony. Launched on the SAME DAY as Xbox One n Zelda on 3DS n in between PS4s launches, again with non existent advertising or marketing. Even though its around half the price of other Vita games its doing appallingly in global sales, 50k to date! Only 50,000 copies sold!

And now with Vita TV bombing hard in the East, Borderlands 2 being free on PS3 in US and EU so that will cripple the Vita copies sales so 3rd party support will dwindle even more.

Nah, i really fear for the Vita now n its all down to Sony n their unbelievably stupid decisions n strategys.
