Borderlands 2 level cap increase incoming, new playable class revealed

By: BatRastered Mar 24, 2013 | 97 Views | 3 Comments | Updated: Mar 25, 2013

During the Gearbox PAX East panel, new information about upcoming Borderlands 2 content was revealed. Here's all we know, plus some video!

Level Cap

On April 2, 2013 there will be a free patch that will unlock the third playthrough Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode (UVHM).

Also on the 2nd, there will be a $5.00 (400 MSP) DLC that will raise the level cap 11 levels to 61 and introduce new Pearlescent rarity gear (similar to the General Knoxx DLC in BL1). This DLC will be FREE for season-pass holders.

New Character

Sometime in May, we will be getting a 6th playable class... the Krieg,the Psycho Bandit! Here's the reveal trailer:

The Krieg class DLC will be $10.00 (800MSP) and NOT included in the season pass. Here's some low quality off-screen footage of Krieg blowing shit up.

  • abilities you've seen the Psycho use on you
  • 'negative things' can be Positive
  • Aggressive, High-risk, high-reward 'in your face' feel
  • rewards being CRAZY
  • If you're successful, he's very powerful

ACTION SKILL: Buzz Axe
melee AND throwing
Gets 100% health for killing people during action skill


BLOODLUST TREE -- Gaige-like 'stack accumulation' and kill skills. Stay in combat and keep doing damage. *lots of gun skills*

MANIA TREE -- Ultimate high-risk, high-reward. Melee damage boosts; taking damage is good! Teammates can damage you to power up your skills!

HELLBORN TREE -- GET ON FIRE!! SMELL DELICIOUS!! Also light other people on fire. Also skills for other elements.

While in FFYL mode, can run around with dynamite until he explodes (killing nearby enemies for a second wind) like a suicide psycho. (This looks to be an optional skill in the mania tree).

New campaign DLC

Sometime in June we will be getting a full, fourth, campaign DLC. This one will be fully developed by Gearbox and will cost $10.00 (800MSP) like the others and be included in the season pass. They say it's the largest DLC ever (including Knoxx).

Bonus fun midget video

Just for the hell of it... a real life psycho midget terrorizing people in a mall.
