Borderlands 2 is getting the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge DLC this fall that will raise the level cap and add new quests.

The season pass for Borderlands 2 has finally ended with the release of Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep. However, 2K Games and Gearbox aren’t finished supporting Borderlands 2 yet and are planning to release more DLC in the near future. The world of Pandora is set to receive a level cap increase, more face skins for all six vault hunters and new boss battles.

The next piece of DLC will release this fall and be titled Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge. This new DLC will raise the level cap from 61 to 72 allowing vault hunters to grind on even longer. Additionally, the Digistruct Peak Challenge will come with new quests, new weapons and new reasons to keep playing Borderlands 2. Starting this fall, Gearbox also plans to release quest chains that lead into uniquely themed boss battles as bonus content that can be purchased individually. Each themed quest will offer unique rewards including heads and skins unique to each vault hunter. The Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge will cost $4.99 (400 Microsoft points). Gearbox will also be selling more head and skin sets separately for $0.99 (80 Microsoft Points).

After playing through Borderlands 2 and the season pass DLC, I have to say that I’m impressed with the work Gearbox and 2K Games put into extending the life of Borderlands 2. If I had to place my favorite DLC from Borderlands and Borderlands 2 in order, it would go like this:

  • Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon KeepUltimate Vault Hunter
  • Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage
  • CL4P-TP Claptraps Robot Revolution
  • Zombie Island of Dr. Ned
  • The Secret Armory of General Knoxx 
  • Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty
  • Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt

You’ll notice that I didn’t mention Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot. It’s just a series of arena battles and Borderlands and Borderlands 2 has arena challenges in it already. Regardless, I’ll be playing more Borderlands 2 in the near future thanks to the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge.
