At PAX AUS, 2K and Gearbox Software announced that Borderlands 2 will be receiving more DLC content in the form of the “Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge,” scheduled for this fall.
The new DLC will also bring about a second level cap increase, epic boss battles, and all-new head and skin sets, according to Gearbox.
“The development team at Gearbox Software is very proud of the content included in the Season Pass, but we want our fans to know we’re not finished with Pandora yet,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “Soon Vault Hunters will be able to take all six Borderlands 2 characters to powerful new levels, while outfitting them with the most badass heads and skins to date.”
The “Digistruct Peak Challenge” DLC will raise the level cap of all six playable characters up to level 72.
Additionally, Gearbox confirmed that “new, uniquely-themed boss fights with additional bonus content will be available for individual purchase beginning this fall and continuing into 2014. Each pack will offer players a new quest leading to a boss fight and, once the player is victorious, in addition to a loot drop, a unique head and skin set for each playable character will unlock.”
Borderlands 2‘s first four DLC packs, plus the “Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack,” are available in the game’s “Season Pass,” which retails for $39.95 AUD or 2400 Microsoft Points. The four pieces of DLC can also be purchased individually for $15.99 AUD each, or 800 Microsoft Points.
