The future of Borderlands 2: Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 and more DLC incoming

A further level cap increase, the Digistruct Peak Challenge and Headhunter packs all on the way

Thought you'd finished with Borderlands 2 after Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep rounded off the first season of DLC? Think again. Gearbox has today revealed there's still an absolute Vault-load of additional content still to come for intrepid Hunters.

The covers were lifted on the new content during a packed panel at PAX Australia earlier today, with more stuff planned to take the game at least up to the end of October.

First up is the snappily titled "Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2" which increases the total level cap to 72 as well as the ability to tweak your game difficulty outside of how your character level already does "for extra challenges". On top of this, the pack also contains the "Digistruct Peak Challenge" which will see the Vault Hunters teaming up with Professor Tannis to train prospective Crimson Raiders after the events of the main story.

Beyond that, Gearbox head Randy Pitchford revealed what he hopes to be the beginning of a new set of add-ons for the game, collectively called the "Headhunter Packs". The first of these will be entitled T.K. Baha's Bloody Harvest, and will feature a reprise of Borderlands 1 character T.K. Baha, only a little more undead than usual. There's no word on whether this or subsequent instalments will be comparable in length to the DLC from the first season, but Pitchford has said Gearbox hope to make "two or three" of the Headhunter Packs in total.

None of the subsequent DLC will be included in the Season Pass though - the Vault Hunter Upgrade 2 Pack will cost around $5 and pricing has yet to be set for the Headhunter packs. On the other hand, further free updates which increase inventory, ammunition and bank capacities are also on the way. There's no firm date for any of this content, but Gearbox have promised that they'll have landed by Halloween at the very latest.


Our hopes are pretty high, if Log's review of Tiny Tina's Dragon Keep is anything to go by. What about you - are you hungry for more from Pandora and is there anything you'd like to see in future Borderlands 2 DLC? You know what to do.
