I would have figured they'd do that with the upcoming dlc, but that is awsome that they're going to do it for free

Is there even a date on the DLC yet? - Perhaps this update is to wipe out all modded equipment before the DLC launch! Just a thought...

if you would actually think, you would see that the update is needed because the normal game and GOTY both use the same framework. Hence if the level cap is increases in the GOTY then it has to be increased , even if you dont have the GOTY.

oh and i think you meant "/facepalm"
