New Borderlands 2 DLC will make the game even more difficult

2 min read


Last year, we made Borderlands 2 our game of 2012, and at the rate that I’m still playing the game, it might be a 2013 winner as well. The latest DLC has injected some new life into the game, but developer Gearbox isn’t done yet as they’ll be bustin’ a level cap in yo ass soon.

Borderlands 2 will see the current level cap go up by 11, allowing characters to shoot their way up to level 72. That upgrade comes with the “Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge”, while the “Headhunter pack” rounds things off which Gearbox confirmed at PAX Australia via Kotaku.

In addition, Borderlands 1 veteran and eventual meat puppet TK Baha will be making a return of sorts in those two DLC extensions, which will have new maps and a new mode where the enemies have been dialled up to 11 on the difficulty scale. As if Ultimate Vault Hunter mode wasn’t hard enough, judging by the fact that my lvl 51 Siren has yet to make it past the first Bandit camp.

And now the bad news. Season Pass holders will not be getting this content for free, but will instead need to fork out some dollars. The current season pass is finished as of the latest Tiny Tina-centric DLC, So expect to see a season 2 pass soon I reckon.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
