Borderlands sale happening on Humble Store as companion app "LootTheWorld" is shut down

Humble Store is holding a Borderlands weekend sale while Gearbox is in preparation to remove their Borderlands 2 app, "LootTheWorld".

There's some really neat Borderlands news happening this weekend; including a huge weekend sale on the Humble Store, and Gearbox officially removing the "LootTheWorld" companion app for Borderlands 2.

Humble's Giant Borderlands Sale

The Humble Store is doing a weekend long sale featuring Gearbox's Borderlands games. Maxing out at 75% off, there are five Borderlands games available including:

  • Borderlands 2 - 75% off - now $4.99
  • Borderlands 2: Game of the Year - 75% off - now $9.99
  • Borderlands: Game of the Year - 75% off - now $7.49
  • Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel - 50% off - now $19.99
  • Borderlands Triple Pack - 75% off - now $22.48

Although Humble Store does have Tales from the Borderlands available for purchase, they didn't include it in the sale - making it full price at $24.99. 

Gearbox Decides to Remove Borderlands 2 App

The developers behind Gearbox have officially decided to pull the plug on their Borderlands 2 companion Google Play app, "LootTheWorld", which will officially be removed during the week of Monday October 19th.

While Gearbox just posted this information to their support site, they gave no reasoning behind the app's removal. Just simply saying to make sure all loot from the app has been moved over to your Borderlands 2 game before the removal, or it will be lost forever.

"LootTheWorld will be shutting down the week of October 18, 2015. After the app shuts down, you will no longer be able to send loot from the app to Borderlands 2. Send over any loot you’re hanging on to as soon as possible.

We will update this article with a firm shut-down date as soon as we have more information."
