New Borderlands 2 DLC and Update. New Level Cap and Vault Hunter Revealed.

Gearbox just announced 2 very promising pieces of DLC for their blockbuster game Borderlands 2. The first of which will be releasing April 2nd and will be raising the level cap an additional 11 levels making the level cap 61 now. This DLC will also be adding a new weapon rarity which fans of the original game will recognize- Pearlescent- making these weapons the rarest in Borderlands 2, this DLC will be included in the season pass or for an additional $4.99.

The Second DLC revealed is the newest vault hunter (images shown are those released at PAX East) named Krieg. He will make the 6th playable vault hunter and he is set to release in May. He will NOT be included in the season pass and will cost $9.99. His character is based off of the psycho bandits with an experiment gone wrong, he will be a high risk character designed for rushing crowds of enemies... So basically a tank (awesome). He will specialize in fire damage setting himself and enemies on fire. Listed below is the information I could find about him that has been releases at PAX East:

Action Skill - Buzz Axe Rampage
~ Melee - smash with axe
~ Ranged - throw axe
~ Kill to stay alive

Skill Tree - Bloodlust
~ uses stacks
~ kill skills
~ designed to constantly damage

Skill Tree - Hellborn
~ emphasis on elemental damage
~ being in fire = POWER

Skill Tree - Mania
~ taking damage is good (I assume it increases your stats)
~ High risk and high reward
~ survive and you a beast

And last but not least there is going to be a free update rolling out April 2nd that will be adding a new game mode called Ultimate Vault Hunters Mode. This will only be available to players who have beat True Vault Hunters Mode and have reached level 50 so this is designed for the 3rd playthrough. Enemies will be scaled to meet the groups highest level character. So keep in mind if you don't buy the level cap DLC and are playing with someone who has it will match their level (ex. You're level 50 your friend is level 61 - your enemies are level 61).

Gearbox has stated this will not be the final DLC, the last story based DLC included in the season pass will be released before June (which im sure will not be the final DLC either). Gearbox will be releasing more information on these DLCs and update in the coming weeks.
