Details for Borderlands 2's New DLC

By Cindy Minguez, 3 years ago
No, your eyes indeed do not deceive you, lover of Pandora - the new DLC for Borderlands 2 is for the hardcore ultimate Ultimate vault hunter! Remember when Gearbox released the Ultimate Vault Hunter upgrade that raised the level caps and introduced such items as Pearlescent weapons? Yes? And now...well...they're, um, doing that again.

In this new DLC pack, we get:

11 new levels...just like before (for a new cap of 72).
11 extra skill points available...just...like before.
New Legendary Mods and Pearlescent-grade weapons...yes, yes, just like before.

But we have new skins, new heads, and a new map!

AND we have a brand new name!

"Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge"

Well, sort of.

Here's the lowdown:
Upgrade Pack 2 screen 1

As you can see, Ultimate Upgrade 2 Pack does more than just add 11 new levels for characters to grow into – it also includes a challenging new map (Raid on Digistruct Peak) for hardcore players!

Packed full of ultra-powerful enemies, Raid on Digistruct Peak is an unrelenting gauntlet for Pandora’s toughest to prove their mettle. Those that defeat the challenge at Level 72 will earn rewards unlike anything Borderlands 2 players have seen before – most notably, the ability to wield insane loot that exceeds the Level 72 cap (imagine what the stats on a Level 80 Conference Call look like) …and face even harder foes.
Seriously, it's Borderlands, so with these new caps will come a whole new crop of sweet, badass weapons, and let's face it - isn't that one of the reasons we love the game?

"Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge" will be available to download September 3rd for $4.99 U.S. The price may differ for other regions.
