Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford told a live PAX audience earlier today that Borderlands will be getting its level cap raised. There’s even better news if you’re a cheapskate as he level cap will be raised via a free update.
Randy told the audience today that they didn’t want to raise the cap by 11 like the last one but didn’t want to raise by only 5. Instead they have gone with a raise in the level cap by 8. Yep, that means the new level cap is. . . sigh . . . 69.
The update is set to go live before the newest DLC, Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution and that DLC is set to drop sometime before the Borderlands Game of The Year Edition which is set to ship on October 15th.
Update: Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution has been announced for a September 28th release.
