Borderlands Game of the Year edition has been rated on ESRB website and it's listed to release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game is rated M for Mature 17+ and the description warns of blood and gore and intense violence.

After many leaks, teases from Gearbox Software and various listings on Korean and Taiwan rating boards, new evidence of an imminent Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition has appeared on The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB).

According to ESRB listing, Borderlands remaster will land on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and it's rated with M for Mature 17+ at the moment. The listing warns of blood and gore, intense violence, language and mature humour.

Furthermore, there is also a mention of in-game purchases which is something that we didn't see in the previous major instalments. The listing doesn't mention specifics but with 2K Games and their history of paid loot boxes and in-game microtransactions, it wouldn't be surprising to see Borderlands Game of the Year flooded with similar monetisation system.

The full rating summary mentions frantic battles that are accompanied by screams of pain, gunfire and large explosions. The summary doesn't reveal anything new really, as everything that is mentioned is already present in the original game. It is a remaster, after all, so we're looking at better visuals, sounds and potentially some minor technical improvements along with the original storyline.

Gearbox Software already teased Borderlands announcements for PAX East 2019, which is scheduled to take place in just a week - 28 March 2019. The devs shared a couple of pictures on their official Twitter profile and one of them included a location from the original Borderlands game, while others suggested a potential Borderlands 3 reveal. More on that here.
