    Borderlands 2 Level Cap Increase Announced

    During a panel at PAX East today, Gearbox revealed that Borderlands 2’s level cap will be raised on April 2nd for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC players. The cap will add 11 new levels (bringing the total to 61) and will be free to Season Pass holders (or $4.99 for everyone else).


    Along with the level raise, Gearbox will also be adding a new weapon tier: Pearlescent. Pearlescent weapons were previously seen in the original Borderlands and will be the rarest loot in Borderlands 2.


    On April 2nd, Gearbox will also offer a new mode called Ultimate Vault Hunter’s Mode as a free update to all players regardless of whether they’ve purchased the level cap raise. The mode will be available to anyone who has beaten True Vault Hunter Mode and reached level 50 and will have enemies scaled to the highest level in your party.


    Gearbox emphasized that the level cap upgrade is not the final piece of the Borderlands 2 season pass and that a fourth campaign is still set to arrive before the end of June. More information on the level cap increase will be announced before its release next week.


    Elsewhere in the panel, Gearbox also revealed a new playable character named Krieg.

    Appears that no one cares about this somewhat mediocre title. It has a stronger narrative and a few other improvements but somehow is not as fun as the first. Sorry Gearbox, no season pass for me.

    Hmm interesting. Just recently picked up and I like it a bit more than I did the first.

    Actually, it is alot better than the first one alot balanced too, better graphics and no lag unlike the first

    the 2nd one got alot of features and it is tons of fun so i strongly disagree with you.

    Love the game. A bit disappointed that the cap increase is a $5 dlc unless youve purchased the season pass tho.

    Also not really a fan of the new char not being included as a part of the season pass. $10 for it is fine, but I personally feel it should've been included as part of the season pass.
    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....

    I agree with this. The second improved upon practically everything from the first.
    I talk to myself because I'm the only one whose answers I accept.

    the lvl cap is free to all, the new char is what you pay for if you like, they will also add a new mode to the game

    I was hooked on the first game but 2nd one I lost interest after a while I find it takes longer to level up than 1st and weapon pick ups are rubbish even at level 20

    Glad you guys enjoyed it. The bug fixes and polish were appreciated but some of the new mechanics were not fun. I especially didn't like the heavy focus on "Fight for Your Life" mechanic. For me, the game lost its "rpg-ness" in favor for a greater emphasis on guns and having the right gear. Plus the whole "get to level 50 so you can farm the right gear" was unappealing. I judge the rpgness of rpgs based on how well the handle the wizard class. If the wizard is doing significantly less damage than the meat-head classes, I usually won't enjoy it. Maya (for me) was a good deal less fun than Lilith.

    Then again, being the oldest (probably) gamer here means I prefer different things in gaming than I did years ago. Looking forward to a sequel, however. Hopefully somewhere other than Pandora.

    Hmmm...I'm an older gamer as well, played both titles. IMO BL2 is a huge improvement over part 1.
    Actually just about all gamers in my "circle" agree as well. Had to tell my buddy to take a break from it after he hit over 1,000 hours of it <SMH>

    Love love love me some borderlands so this is very good news indeed! Brief history: grew up as a pc gamer than splinter cell 1 converted me to consoles and i never looked back. spent most of my early console life on fps's and ignored rpgs. got borderlands on the fly and realized all that i'd been missing. i'm probably still gonna stick mostly with the fps but i'll give an rpg or AA a try every now and then

    I stopped playing this game after I realized the huge issue with Host Advantage it has. It was awesome in single player but most things didn't work well in online due to this issue.

    Ok. Would you please post a video of shooting an alien gun (so we can see tracers better) from multiplayer (where you aren't the host) and post the same video in single player? I would do that if I had the game and show you how much lag there is when you're not the host...which eliminates the purpose of most of what is in the game.

    I'll have to look, i don't think most people realize this issue.

    I would've just recorded it with a cam lol. but try it yourself, play single player, watch when the bullet comes out when you shoot, try to shoot some bursts or single shots...then go on multiplayer with the same weapon and try again. more noticeable with a shotty.

    Well then it's just me. lol I'm serious! I wish I could show people. You may not be noticing it. It's there! If you have the sniper guy and you spec into the bloodshed tree, it's useless online as it's mostly not fast enough due to lag and you end up zipping around missing everyone.
