After rumors started to break about it late last week, Gearbox confirmed during its PAX Australia panel that new Borderlands 2 DLC is indeed on the way. The Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 will increase the current level cap by 11 in addition to bringing with it the Digistruct Peak Challenge. It will also allow players to “over level” the game which should give truly dedicated players something to strive for. Sadly, we don’t have a release date for the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 just yet, but Gearbox did confirm that it will only cost $5 and is NOT part of the DLC season pass.
They aren’t stopping there though, a free update for Borderlands 2 is also in the works that will increase the amount of ammunition players can carry, add new bank slots, and inventory capacity. These upgrades will be purchasable using Eridium. Finally, T.K Baha’s Bloody Harvest DLC is also in development and will include a boss battle against the pumpkin creature, Jacques O’Lantern. Now that should be awesome.
In closing, Gearbox revealed what might have been the highlight of the panel and that was the fact that these are NOT the final DLC announcements for Borderlands 2 and gamers should expect 1 to 2 more content add-ons before it’s all said and done. Not bad for panel if we do say so ourselves.
Now hit up the comments and let us know what you think about the upcoming DLC. Do you love all the variety or is Gearbox milking this cow just a little too much?
