The Borderlands 2 Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2, and the Headhunter Pack: T.K. Baha’s Bloody Harvest will be released this fall.
At a PAX Australia panel, Borderlands 2 developer Gearbox revealed several new DLC packs coming this fall, as well as a new free update to the game. The Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 includes 11 more levels, the Digistruct Peak Challenge (a new map), new loot, and an increased level cap of 72. The Headhunter Pack: T.K. Baha’s Bloody Harvest includes a new mission, a themed boss fight featuring T.K. “The Wave” Baha, and another boss fight with new character Jacques O’Lantern (three guesses as to what his gimmick is).
The Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 will set you back $5, but pricing for the Headhunter Pack has yet to be confirmed. Gearbox also announced that several additional Headhunter packs, each featuring a new “raid boss” and mission, are currently in the works. Neither of these DLC packs are included in the Season Pass.
In addition to this, extra ammo capacity, backpack, bank slots and more character customization options will be coming later this year as a free update. Fans of Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep should know that a fix for its unlockable head customizations is coming “soonsih.”
It’s quite surprising to see Gearbox putting out a second level cap increase for the game, especially after specifically stating that an increased level cap would break the game. I guess someone figured out how to “unbreak” the game. It is also nice to see some extra content released in a free update.
If you’re able to get down to PAX Australia, you can pick up some free DLC codes for some exclusive in-game skins at the Borderlands booth.
