That’s right ladies and gentlemen if you’ve played all there is to play in Borderlands 2 and it’s five current DLC packs there is more incoming for you. Gearbox confirmed at their PAX Australia panel today that the level cap will be increased by another 11 levels to 72, plus new missions and additional DLC packs will be released this fall.

Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge, which includes the level cap increase, will be released by the end of October for $5.00. This DLC is a new map where the player will fight high level enemies to further level their characters and earn new loot.

Gearbox also confirmed that they will be releasing multiple “Headhunter” packs which offer new missions and themed boss fights, the first of which will be dubbed “T.K. Baha’s Bloody Harvest.” This pack will send players to fight Jacques O’Lantern, a unique pumpkin boss who rewards new character customizations after being beaten.

Note: All new DLC from here on out will not be part of the Borderlands 2 Season Pass.
