If you're a rabid Borderlands 2 fanatic like me, you'll be pleased to hear that the downloadable content packs released under the game's "season pass" bundle are not the end of the line—not by a long shot. According to DigitalTrends, Gearbox has four more DLC releases primed for the remainder of 2013.
The first of those offerings, slated for September 3, is titled Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge. This expansion pack raises the level cap, letting Vault Hunters go as high as level 72, and adds a new "overpower" system that "creates an opportunity for players to take on monsters and collect loot rated up to level 80." Digistruct Peak also includes a truly challenging new mission area that's "balanced for a full team of four players and takes roughly an hour to complete."
Next up, in October, is TK Baha's Bloody Harvest, a Halloween-themed expansion that's already taking me back to the pumpkin-laced Zombie Island of Dr. Ned pack released for the original Borderlands. This expansion is the first of three "Headhunter" packs coming this year. Each of them will reportedly cost less and be a little smaller in scope than earlier DLC releases for Borderlands 2.
Oh, and once you defeat the final boss in each of the headhunter packs, guess what you get? Yep, a wearable version of that boss's head in your inventory, to satisfy that strangely irresistible collector's impulse that drives every vault hunter. Seems oddly appropriate, in the most inappropriate possible way.
Personally, I just need to get over my mild meta-game obsession with SHIFT codes. I now have 80 golden keys in my inventory, and my Zero character is using the prime loot I've already collected to slice through the baddies in the Tiny Tina DLC with almost too much ease.
Speaking of Tiny Tina, Gearbox just released this video pimping her DLC offering.
Gotta love Tina's sass.
