Gearbox Confirms Plans to Increase Borderlands Level Cap


One of the main complaints fans have made about the two current DLC add-ons for Borderlands is that they’ve failed to raise the level cap. But apparently the guys and gals at Gearbox have been keeping a watchful eye on their forums and are ready to give players exactly what they want.

Earlier today, a level designer from Gearbox took time out to tease what’s planned for the next Borderlands DLC pack, posting the following message on the game’s forum.

Hey guys!

Sorry, I haven’t gotten to post on the forums in a while! After finalizing Zombies DLC, the team and I began reading the DLC feedback around the forums on the wants and desires. Guess what, level cap increase anyone? Got it and it’s awesome. Hopefully we can get a full announcement out to you guys soon but, man is this the biggest DLC we have made. So don’t worry, we are working really hard right now on both the update (that solves a bunch of issues) and the DLC. More to come guys!!

So, there you have it. The next DLC, level cap raise included, is going to be the biggest yet, and another major patch is in the works.

Kotaku is also reporting that another Gearbox staffer joined in on the fun by tweeting a teaser of his own indicating that the DLC will center on New Haven mechanic Scooter. Score!
