Borderlands 2 DLC raises games level cap today

New Borderlands 2 DLC released today will raise the game’s level cap to 72 while introducing a fresh area and mission, Raid on Digistruct Peak, which is pictured above. Announced in July, Ultimate Upgrade Pack 2 is crammed with ultra-powerful enemies. Players who complete Raid on Digistruct Peak at level 72 will unlock the ability to wield loot that exceeds the level cap and face even tougher foes.

Costing £29.99 on PC and £39 on Xbox 360 and PS3, the Game of the Year Edition will include over £75 of gameplay content when it launches internationally on October 11.
