Gearbox announces DLC for Borderlands 2 this fall, level cap raised
Last weekend, in a panel at PAX Australia, Gearbox announced there would be more DLC incoming this fall for Borderlands 2. This comes together with an increase in the Borderlands 2 level cap by 11 levels, making the total 72.
The newly announced content comes in the form of Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge, which will be available for $5.00 in October. The Digistruct Peak Challenge will feature a new map where players will fight high-level enemies to gain new loot. For the die-hard Borderlands players, The DLC equally adds the option to raise the difficulty bar outside of their character’s level. Additional backpack, ammo and bank slots will be available in an upcoming free update.
Rest assured, this isn’t everything yet! Gearbox also announced 2 or 3 ‘Headhunter’ packs offering extra missions and new unique boss fights. The first of them will be called T.K. Baha’s Bloody Harvest in which players play with the zombie version of one of the characters in the first Borderlands in order to defeat Jaques O’Lantern, a giant pumpkin boss. We still havn’t received specific prices or release dates for these packs however.
Last month, the Borderlands 2 season pass concluded with the release of Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep. These newly announced DLC’s will therefore not figure in the season pass, and will be sold separately.
