15 minutes of footage

Gamespot just uploaded a video of DLC gameplay.

Looks like Moxxi's underdome only not awful. Can't wait.

Definitely looks better than Underdome, but then pretty much anything would be better than that. More new currency? I really hope it's handled better than Seraph crystals...like you can obtain more than a handful a day.

There is quite a bit of new info in the above link if you wanted to read about say the new currency or other stuff....

I might wait to DL this, only because I still have more of the main game to do.

A couple of things to note from that article:

~ Still no level cap raise
~ Only 3 achievements......again.
~ Still no additional uses for eridium being added...instead it is yet another currency.

Still using Seraph crystals? I see the Torgue tokens, which is kinda nice they're letting you but an IotD Legendary and various Torgue Products.

Still, above is correct, what the hell?

Still no level cap raise... Are you freaking kidding me? Most people who've bought Borderlands 2 at release have already completed TVHM and reached level 50. I'm going through the first DLC right now, and for some missions you only get some cash and EXP as a reward. I've got more than enough money already and the EXP is freaking worthless to me now. I was really hoping, no, expecting there would be a level cap raise with this DLC. What a let down.

No level cap increase again? Are they going to wait until all the DLC has released to raise the cap? Come on already.

I dunno, looks like it could be fun to me. I haven't had a problem with any bugs other than bunker getting stuck once. I've already paid for the season pass so ill wait to get it to pass judgement. Kind of ticked they didn't raise the cap though, I thought that was a no brainier.

According to a dev/interviewer/whoever, they're considering some form of level cap.

I have a feeling they don't know what they're doing and they're going to try some experiment instead of a traditional cap to wow us. My paranoid instinct says they're either going to muck up or not do anything.

There's something called Specialist skill points, might as well go find out what that is.

I don't know, I want to say I just don't care anymore but I guess I care enough to continue making posts about it. I'm in this now because like an idiot, I bought the season pass. I'm in it for the achievements at this point, which I'll clean up as quickly as possible in my normal playthrough. Regardless of the amount or quality of the future DLC I feel I have already spent enough time with the grinding this game offers and I have lost my motivation and interest for it. So spit these DLC's out as fast as you want and let's end this.

Doesnt exactly look "meh" but doesnt get me Pumped either
Maybe they decided to phone this one since pretty much everyone is Playing BLOPS 2 and halo 4.
Fingers crossed for an awesome 3rd dlc and maybe the return of zombies/claptraps/General Knoxx

Agreed, in my case I have a use for it though. Since I have a lot of free time, I tend to play the DLC's first and tell my friends and other forum folk (LL) about it. I've already convinced and unconvinced people simply telling them there is no level cap raise. Also as a bonus, this might be able to hold me over until Dragonborn.

So does anyone know if the dlc will only be about fighting in the arena? Or will there maybe still be other places to explore/quest in?

Didn't watch the video provided in the OP, huh?

Yeah, there will be other places to explore/quest.

Damn where were yall for Borderlands 1?? The lvl cap didn't raise til DLC3 back then, so why do ya'll thing it would be any different now??

If the next DLC doesn't have a level cap increase then start raising hell, but for now just chill to the next episode.

Because BL1 was their first game, obviously. They were experimenting with what worked/observing demand back then. After TONS of data, it is safe to say they know how fast demand for a cap raise can happen now. The only people that haven't hit the cap by this point are the most casual of players.

This isn't like gears, where it actually took a decent amount of time to rank up....you can hit the cap after 1.5 playthroughs if you are playing side missions......as far as I know, the majority of the regular players have accomplished that well over a month ago.

It is simply not fun playing through DLC without being able to rank up (and no, I don't want to create a new character just to play the DLC). Nobody is asking them to help us max out the skill trees......we simply want some kind of extra motivation to continue on with our characters. They could figure out a way to let us level up without giving out as many skill points as before. That could help prevent overpowered characters.

Point taken, I guess all we got to look forward too are new legendaries if any.

Agreed, I was level 50 by the time I beat TVHM.

Well said. I just want to add one thing to this. For all the people that wonder why we want a level cap increase, the answer is that is exactly what a game like this is built around. Leveling up and finding loot. When you're not doing one or the other, there's no game left. And the looting has just gotten boring. Level 50 just isn't that high. I know if it was an infinite number at some point it breaks the game code so we can't have that and like Shaun said they don't even need to hand out skill points at every level, but a higher level cap keeps you feeling like you're doing something atleast.

I wouldn't mind skill points, make up for the first five levels. All said and done with the DLCs, you had 69 Skill points for level 69 in BL1.
