Borderlands update 1.41 is live, eight new levels added

Gearbox has released a Title Update for Borderlands, the hit first-person shooter RPG from last year. The biggest change you’ll see is the addition of eight new XP levels. Look for the enemies you fight along the wasteland to scale properly with your level.

The update was teased last week on Gearbox’s community forum. Keep in mind this is a free update.

Here are the Title Update 1.41 notes:

* Level cap increase of 8 levels for all players (original Borderlands players will now be able to achieve level 58; owners of The Secret Armory of General Knoxx can achieve a maximum level of 69)
* Enemies now scale to new level caps throughout the whole game as long as playthrough 2 has been completed.
* Item drops (with the exception of COM Decks) will now scale to new enemy level caps.
* DLC4 Achievement/Trophy glitches that have affected some users will now properly award players for obtaining these achievements.
