The next wave of Borderlands 2 DLC is coming this fall, as 2K Games announced the details for a new batch of content coming to Pandora that will include a second level cap increase, epic boss battles, and all-new head and skin sets.
The Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge will raise the Borderlands 2 level cap from 61 to 72 for all six playable characters. It will be available soon for $4.99 (400 Microsoft Points). For the first time, 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.
The new head and skin sets available in the new Borderlands 2 DLC will also be available for $0.99 (80 Microsoft Points) each, making all six of the playable Borderlands 2 characters more customizable than ever before.
The Borderlands 2 DLC Season Pass, which also contains the first Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack, is still available for purchase and provides nearly $45.00 worth of content for $29.99 (2400 Microsoft Points), includes four extensive add-on campaigns offering dozens of hours of gameplay:
- Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty
- Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage
- Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt
- Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep
Players can also individually purchase the four add-on campaigns for $9.99 each (800 Microsoft Points) as well as the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack for $4.99 (400 Microsoft Points).
Borderlands 2 is the sequel to the original game that invented a new genre: the FPS/RPG hybrid that 2K Games calls the “shooter-looter.” Borderlands 2 features all-new characters and skill trees, diverse new environments, missions and enemies, as well as weapons and equipment with more personality than ever before. Players experience an all-new story that takes place five years after the events of the original game. Four friends can team up online to journey through the huge, open world of Pandora to take down the notorious Handsome Jack and his corrupt Hyperion Corporation.
