One of the most common requests for Borderlands 2 is a level cap increase. The original Borderlands received a level cap increase through DLC too, hence the requests frequency. Finally our question has been answered and we now know that the level cap will be increased in the first quarter of next year. One slight difference this time though is that the level cap increase may even come as a separate download, and more interestingly, will make players want to play the whole game again apparently.
“Speaking with IGN in a recent demo to show off Big Game Hunt, a 2K representative said that Borderlands 2 is already more successful than the original, with higher attach rates for DLC. Since fans have used their dollars to support Borderlands 2, 2K wants to continue to support the title so long as fans show interest. It was hinted that this could include new characters, and almost definitely more DLC after the first season is over sometime in 2013.”
“Additionally, 2K confirmed that Borderlands 2 will have the current level 50 cap raised sometime in the first quarter of next year. While Gearbox is still exploring whether they want to do it as part of DLC number four or as a separate download, we were assured that it’s being developed in such a way that you’ll want to play through the entirety of the game again.”
