Borderlands 2 – New Level Cap Will Raise The Level To 72, DLC Add-Ons And More Outed

Can’t get enough Borderlands 2? If so, the folks over at Gearbox Software have just announced during their PAXAUS panel a few pieces of new DLC content you can surely look forward to.

One piece of DLC is the Ultimate Vault Hunter Pack 2, which will add another 11 levels, raising the maximum level cap to 72. It also features the new ‘Digistruct Peak’, run by Dr. Tannis and Lilith who use this area to recruit new Crimson Raiders. This will enable you to fight groups of enemies that you would normally never see together.

For example, you will be able to take on Skags and Threshers at the same time and you’ll be able to over-level your game, in case you really wanted a challenge. Additionally, those who didn’t purchase the previous level cap, which was released this past April, will only be able to reach level 61 if they only purchase the second Ultimate Vault Hunter Pack. To reach maximum level they’ll need to purchase both.

Sadly, Ultimate Vault Hunter Pack 2 won’t be included in the season pass, but will be available for $4.99 USD or 400 Microsoft Points. However, Gearbox will be throwing in some free goodies, including storage deck upgrades for weapon ammunition, bank space and inventory.

Those who are patiently waiting for Gearbox to release the heads and skins that were associated with Tiny Tina’s Assault On Dragon Keep won’t have to wait much longer. Gearbox will be releasing them in about two to three weeks via shift codes.

Speaking of heads and skins, those who attend this years Gearbox Community Day Event, which will take place over the internet on September 14, will be treated with some rather new wild west themed customization items for all six vault hunters at no charge. You can view them below:


If all of the above doesn’t entertain you, expect the new DLC add-ons called ‘Headhunters’ to be available soon. The first one, titled ‘T.K. Baha’s Bloody Harvest’, includes missions for T.K Baha. He is an NPC from the first game who will have you taking on a new boss, Jacques O’Lantern. If you’re successful at defeating him, you will be able to earn new customization items for your character.

Pricing for T.K Bahas Bloody Harvest is yet to be announced, but you can expect more Headhunters DLC to be made available in the future with at least two more in the works. Fans expecting to take a trip to the Hyperion moon base, may be disappointed as Gearbox didn’t make any mentions of it. But they did however, reveal a clip from a short film in which Brick and Tiny Tina are being questioned by Hyperion personnel.

Which of the new DLC’s are you looking forward to the most? Lets us know in the comment section below!

    This game is amazing .. I think it is so similar to uncharted 3’s ideas

    • QwietStorm

      Care to expound?

  • Kevin Garvey

    I feel like they won’t add the hyperion moon dlc to this and would save it for BL3, but do you have the footage of brick and tiny tina Joel?

    • Chad Eugene Rash

      Randy made a statement that we will be going there in BL2.

      • WarBroh

        No he didn’t. Dafuq is wrong with you

    • Joel Santana

      Nope I don’t ,sorry.

      They were having a lot of issues with their stream and I was only able to catch a glimpse of it. Though, they might put the video up on Youtube soon.

  • WarBroh

    Any new Borderlands DLC is good DLC. Keep ’em comin GBX.

    • Ranger_Ric

      Amen brother WarBroh!

      I don’t care what the theme is, any new DLC is killer. Who needs BL3 ha

      Seriously, I have worked so hard getting my weapons and chars built, I really don’t want to start a new BL. I still have years of play left in BL2

  • AtheistMason

    The T.K. Baha DLC sounds good (man is he dead or not), but I was looking forward to DLC5 being set in the Hyperion Moonbase.. I thought GBX teased it at the end of DLC4 (not to spoil anything)

    Anyways I’ll stick to it 🙂

    • AnonyDude

      Pretty sure they’ll do the Moon Base as the ending DLC, getting Pandora free of Hyperion, as the end of BL1 dealt with the liberation from the Atlas Corporation. Or something. Whoever it was who were the bad guys then. It’s an endgame thing, as I see it.

      • AtheistMason

        And it will be epic.

  • DC360

    i want bl3, what i want from it is a gun upgrade like adding your own attatchments, next i would like some tipe of perk system simmilar to the class mod, next some collectibles that you can trade with like a jack statue or something, next more character interaction so your own character your playing as is talking, next is new shops and a gun forge system like forge two guns together to make a new gun like a minecraft recipe, last thing i can think of is mini games some fun thing to play with friends like a box cart race or a survival arena where you fight each other with balance guns.
