Borderlands Level Cap Increasing For Free
Written Monday, September 06, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Speaking during the Gearbox panel at PAX, company president, Randy Pitchford declared that the level cap for Borderlands is set to increase from 61 to 69 and will cost absolutely nothing, which is nice.
"The level cap will now be 69," confirmed Pitchford. "That's the magic number." He then went on to say that the new level cap will arrive in time for the release of the Borderlands Game of the Year Edition in late-October.
Available for anyone that owns the General Knoxx DLC, which has an 11 level increase, the extra eight levels will otherwise be completely free. So, you'll only need the Knoxx episode to be able to boost all the way up to 69.
The eight-level increase will be coming in a patch that will also introduce a few balancing tweaks for the game. Good stuff all in all. Look out for the Borderlands level increase this autumn.
