Win “Handsome Jack’s Loot” from 2K Games

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to sit down with 2K to talk about Borderlands: The Handsome Collection and check out their one-of-a-kind Borderlands inspired furniture set – complete with a Claptrap refrigerator. The coolest part is, they are giving the entire set of furniture away (including an Xbox One and 4 controllers) to one lucky winner.

You can find all of the details about the Handsome Jack’s Loot Contest and see some images of the furniture over at the official website. Good luck and let us know if you win.
