Borderlands 2 getting new level cap, third play through.

Vault hunters rejoice! Gearbox has tipped off fans with new and insanely awesome Borderlands 2 news. Just like the first game, dedicated players will be able to burst through the level 50 cap to an as of yet unannounced cap. The great thing is that instead of tying the level increase to a paid DLC pack like the first, it will be enabled through a software update. Much better deal for hardcore but cash strapped players. As of now, Gearbox estimates 80 percent of Borderlands 2 players haven’t hit the daunting level 50 ceiling.
Another bit of intel shows that Borderlands 2 will have a third play through. If Gearbox is planning on adding another play through option, does this mean the cap will be a hefty increase? I hope so because the game is riding quite the wave of positive reviews, thanks in no small part to the developers massive post launch support. Think of all those Golden keys they keep handing out on Twitter and Facebook. Golden Keys that keep enabling obsessive players with rare loot. It’s rather quite addicting actually.
The sad part is Gearbox isn’t looking to add these new changes to the game until after the fourth DLC pack, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, drops on the various marketplaces January 15th. Plenty of time to get that 80% down geeks!
Borderlands 2 To Get Pirate Themed DLC
Last Updated on Friday, 12 October 2012 06:02 Written by Laddie13 Friday, 12 October 2012 06:02
I’m not entirely sure of the reason but I largely ignored Borderlands when it was released in 2009. I bought the game shortly after it released but never played it until I decided to give it a go a couple of weeks before its sequel came out this past September. I can’t believe I let this game and all its awesomeness be shoved to the back of my game catalog. I was immediately hooked and made Borderlands 2 a must have day one purchase.
Even though I’m only about halfway through my journey to Pandora in Borderlands 2 I’m excited for the release of next weeks pirate themed DLC “Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty.” This is the first of four DLC packs and will be $9.99 or 800 Microsoft points. There’s also the Borderlands 2 season pass to consider which for $29.99/2,400 Microsoft points will net you all for DLC packs as they are released for a cheaper price.
Captain Scarlet and Her Pirate’s Booty takes place in the slums of Oasis which is overrun by bandits. Generally pirates are associated with water and ships but the setting here will be similar to Tatooine and will feature a new vehicle called the Sand Skiff. Also added to the DLC will be a new type of currency, seraph crystals.
Injustice: Gods Among Us attempting to fix DLC fighter problems.

Besides being a kick-ass fighting game starring DC’s mightiest heroes and villians, Injustice: Gods Among Us might finally fix that annoying DLC incompatibility issue we sometimes run into. Some gamers download every fighter as soon as they become available while some bide their time and concentrate on the core combatants included in the original release. Different ways for different folks to enjoy the game, except when it comes to online brawling. Usually both parties must have the additional characters on their console even if one isn’t using them if one gamer wants to trade fists as a DLC fighter. Makes online matchmaking very frustrating and oft times demoralizing.
NetherRealm Studios, the team behind the game and the recent Mortal Kombat reboot, plans on making that irritation a thing of the past. The devs want to set it up so the fighters will download unto your console while you’re playing, leaving the necessary info ready for online war. You still won’t be able to play as them, unless you pay for them, but you would be able to play against someone who spent the cash. So explains Ed Boon, the man -
“We want to come up with a way to push all that information onto people’s machines so if I buy some character that was available for download, you would have it on your machine and I would be able to fight against you online. We’re coming up with a great automated system to make sure I can use my character against anybody and everything’s compatible.”
Here’s hoping they can pull it off and it becomes a standard feature for all online capable console games. Could you imagine if map packs were like this?
