2K and Bethesda announce cross-publisher game bundles

Publishers 2K and Bethesda have partnered to release bundles of their recent hits for 360 and PS3. Both companies announced two such bundles this morning: “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” with “Bioshock Infinite,” and “Dishonored” with “Borderlands 2.”

These bundles will retail for $29.99 each, and will be available in North America on February 11.

2K released a humorous letter to Bethesda about the bundles, written by Borderland’s character Claptrap.

“We’ve had a big couple of years, you and I,” said Claptrap to Bethesda. “I starred in ‘Borderlands 2,’ and you guys released ‘Dishonored’ (the best fish-possessing simulator on the market). You’re great, and I’m great. You love bundling games together, and I love snuggling! And after all, Valentine’s Day is coming – love and viscera are in the air!”

“I guess what I really mean to say is: we should bundle our games together!”

The bundles will only have the original game content, and will not include any DLC.

Both bundles are solid deals compared to buying each game individually. Here are Amazon’s current prices for each title:

 

BioShock Infinite

$34.45 (Xbox 360)
$27.30 (PS3)

The Elder Scolls V: Skyrim

$21.99 (Xbox 360)
$21.10 (PS3)

Borderlands 2

$18.99 (Xbox 360)
$14.99 (PS3)

Dishonored

$14.96 (Xbox 360)
$14.96 (PS3)

 

 

Here are the cover arts for the two bundles:
