Today, 2K and Gearbox Software confirmed that the Ultimate Borderlands 2 Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 DLC is now available for download on all platforms for the retail price of $4.99. Below is a brief description of the downloadable content along with a comparison chart for further explanation as provided by 2K.
The Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge offers 11 levels of powerful character growth, more legendary gear, and the new “Raid on Digistruct Peak” map, giving players a high-level challenge for only $4.99. When combined with the first Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack – also available separately for $4.99, or as part of the Season Pass for $29.99 – players can now take their Vault Hunters to an all-time high level of 72 and collect even more rare and valuable loot. Level 72 players will also unlock the opportunity to over-level the game as they quest for even more powerful enemies and loot in Pandora. Lastly, one new head and skin set will be available for each Vault Hunter for $0.99 each, making all six of the playable Borderlands 2 characters more customizable than ever before.
Prior to today’s announcement, Randy Pitchford had stated that Gearbox would continue to support the game with more DLC in the months ahead. Fans of all the Borderlands 2 content up until this point will no doubt be pleased to hear this and will most likely spend the extra five bucks to increase their character’s level cap ASAP.
