new class, level cap raised to 61, 3rd playthrough

Gearbox details Borderlands 2 level, ammo, and inventory increase update | News | PC Gamer

Gearbox details Borderlands 2 level, ammo, and inventory increase update
34 Comments Omri Petitte at 07:12pm March 29 2013


Gearbox has posted a list of what to expect in an upcoming free update for Borderlands 2 that prepares Pandora for its incoming Ultimate Vault Hunter DLC and a level cap increase to 61. Somewhat confusingly, a new Ultimate Vault Hunter mode will arrive in the patch everyone gets, but the similarly titled $5 DLC is where the extra levels, skill points, and weapons all reside.

Here’s Gearbox’s breakdown:

Changes in 4/2 Software Update (Free)

Adds new items to the Black Market:
One additional ammo upgrade for each ammo type at 50 Eridium each.
Two more backpack storage space upgrades at 50 and 100 Eridium respectively.

Two more bank storage space upgrades at 50 and 100 Eridium respectively.
Increases the maximum amount of Eridium players can hold from 99 to 500.
Adds a new playthrough balanced for top-tier play: Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.
Various bug fixes.

Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack (Free with Season Pass or $5 separately)

Raises level cap to 61, allowing characters to gain 11 additional levels.

Characters gain a skill point with every level from 51 to 61, for a total of 11 more skill points.

Powerful new “Ancient” E-Tech relics and rare Pearlscent-grade weapons can be picked up in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.

Gearbox also delved into the specifics of Ultimate Vault Hunter mode in a separate post:

Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode is unlocked for a character once they have completed the main story missions in True Vault Hunter Mode and reached level 50.

Unlike other playthroughs, Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode can be replayed multiple times with players able to reset their overall mission progress at any time from the Main Menu.

No more tutorial missions—characters in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode begin in Southern Shelf with the “Cleaning Up the Berg” mission.

While playing in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode, enemies and bosses will scale according to the player’s current level or, if playing with others, the highest-level player in that party.

Gameplay changes in UVHM:

Enemy health generally increased 4x.
Enemies now have a moderate amount of health regeneration.
Increased duration of slag damage multiplier effect.
Upped the damage that slagged enemies take from 2x to 3x.
Weapon swap speed increased to better facilitate slag use.
Enemies now more likely to drop ammo.
Loot Midgets are now “Legendary Loot Midgets” that can drop Legendary and other top-tier gear.

Both the free patch and the DLC releases on April 2. The next DLC hits one month later, when that scary Krieg guy will jump down from his hiding spot and rip everyone’s arms off.

Does Handsome Jack remind anyone else of Archer?

Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep recasts Borderlands 2 in a fourth-wall-breaking fantasy setting
By Brian Crecente on May 28, 2013 at 8:47a @crecenteb

The last of Borderlands 2's promised downloadable content is also unquestionably the biggest. There are more quests, more enemies and more art assets than the other three DLC campaigns combined.

"This was our last campaign DLC so we thought, ‘**** it, let's go all in'," Gearbox Software writer Anthony Burch said.

All of that extra content powers an imaginative recreation of the apocalyptic Borderlands 2 world.

Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep takes place as a game inside a game. Players are controlling characters inside a game of Borderlands' take on Dungeons and Dragons, Bunkers and Badasses, with Tiny Tina as the bunker master.

The DLC hits June 25 and is included with the season pass or can be purchased on its own for $9.99 or 800 Microsoft points.

The game opens with a cut-scene that sets up the rest of the game: Tiny Tina and the vault hunters at a table playing the game. As Tina narrates what's happening, the cut-scene cuts to gameplay in a world actively shaped by Tina's voice-over descriptions.

While nothing has changed about your vault hunter characters, besides a level cap increase to 61, all of the enemies are completely new, created specifically to fit in with the new fantasy setting. So that means orcs, goblins, knights, dwarves, skeletons, all created with a mash-up of Borderlands aesthetic and Tiny Tina humor.

"Wizards, knights, orcs, dwarves, any fantasy D&D cliché we play with and make our own," Burch said.

For instance, Orc Zerkers have two guns, but the context is still fantasy.

Tiny Tina's attitude and voice play a major role in the game. She doesn't just describe the settings, your quests and the enemies you face, she'll sometimes change things if she sees you're having a rough time, or she gets bored. These fourth-wall-breaking narrative tweaks result in immediate changes in the game as you play. Sometimes her actions do too. In one example, a die falls from the sky and kills a character.

The narration is mostly pre-scripted, but there are branching decisions, Burch said.

"You fail a bunch of times and she may be like ‘**** it' and then she makes it easier and things will change in front of you," he said. "Sometimes enemies behavior changes too."

And Tina isn't the only one talking in the game, players will also get to hear the vault hunters occasionally saying what they want to do, as you do it.

"A lot of the fans felt that the player character should talk more," Burch said. "Different characters say different things. They never did that in the main game."

While the game still features guns, despite the fantasy setting, they're not the typical weapons of Borderlands.

"We have guns that shoot exploding swords," Burch said. "We've got these grenade modes that are reworked into being magic spells. There are these new grenades that wizards drop that are fire *****, magic missiles and lightning blots."

When you use the mods, he said, your character will say the type of mod it is, like lightning bolt, or fireball, in a nod to an live-action-role-playing cliche.

The game also brings back some fan favorites, recreated to fit the new motif.

Mr. Torgue, for instance, comes back as a mouthy, quest-giving gatekeeper who asks you to prove your baddassitude before you can pass through his gate.

It's easy to get lost in the details of this last campaign, noticing things like the reinvented shops (like Zed's Apothecary and Marcus' Missiles) and chests that have you roll a D20, or the game's music that now features a mandolin and panflutes, or even the way your character is reborn after every player-induced death.

The settings I saw included a gothic town, an uninviting forest populated with living trees and pixies and a distant tower, complete with a queen you need to save.

"I think that's appealing, the recontextualization of everything that Borderlands is," Burch said. "It's not remarkably different than [Borderlands'] 'The Zombie Island of Dr Ned'."

One of the benefits of building a campaign around a game within a game is that it allows the developers to tell two stories. The more obvious one is the story taking place inside the game of B&B, but there's also a second story of the people around the table playing the game. It's a story of how Tiny Tina is using the B&B campaign to deal with the deaths of her friends.

"We found after the fact, that implicitly dungeons and dragons can be a good way to deal with real world issues and help with healing," Burch said. "In general, when you see D&D culture or nerd culture dealt with, it's in two condescending ways: Either nerds are punchlines or, more worrisome, the idea that if you play these games you're a bad person because the games are about killing people and that's horrible.

"We wanted to be that other voice, to point out that fantasy can have really helpful applications."

What are season passes used for?

I need to start playing this again! I have like 20 Sanctuary keys.
I never really liked the initial starting cast. Of the DLC, is there a gunslinger/hunter type like Mordecai from BL1?

Season passes allow you to download any future DLC releases for one price. That looks like a great deal!

Do you wait until 50 to use the keys?

How do you find better guns? I'm using the same equipment since 6 levels ago.. Playing the 2nd play through and it's tough.

the keys create epics that are your current level. So its better to use them as late as possible but if you really need upgrades then use a few.

When I play on team, there aren't many public games available. A lot of them are 1/4 too. I was starting to think the game is starting to fade.

I wish they would just bundle all the DLC in a cheaper package.

I'm about half a bar from 50. I feel like once I get 50, I'll stop playing.
