Steam News announces a free weekend is underway in Borderlands 2, Gearbox Software's humorous role-playing shooter sequel.

Also, Steam News announces that pre-purchases are now being accepted for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, noting that a 10% discount is offered to those who already own either of the first two Borderlands games.

They are punishing early buyers. I got ripped off during the summer sale, bought the season pass and then I found out that it wasn't a "season pass" and that the GOTY would be the ideal choice for just 1 more. I only wanted the Tiny Tina's addon, so no big deal.

In short: Logic calls out buying the season pass if you own the base game, but you pay more for less... and you also payed more back in the day.

...and I must agree with some posts here, Borderlands 2 is a overrated borefest.

The season pass was always very specific that it included 4 things. It is on you for not reading. The season pass never said it was all DLC.

GOTY ALWAYS contains more content than what you can buy on Day 1, and is ALWAYS cheaper. You weren't even an "early buyer" if you bought it in the summer sale, the game is what, 2 years old?
I know, I should've read... but its VERY misleading, in other games: Season Pass = Everything

I don't think that's true, either. It is for episodic games, like The Walking Dead, but I can't find a single other game it's true for. Mortal Kombat seems to be one of the first to do it, and the Season Pass was only 4 fighters. More DLC came out. Lots of other games have preorder bonuses not in the Season Pass but available later.
Wait, it looks like Rockstar's Season Passes have everything, but that isn't true for any other game I'm looking at.
