    Exciting changes are coming to Borderlands 2 on April 2, 2013!
    As you may have heard, the team has been hard at work to raise the level cap -- an effort that required re-balancing, re-tuning and re-testing the entire game -- along with adding a third playthrough, more ammo upgrades, additional backpack slots and more!
    Here's what players on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 can expect that day:

    Changes in 4/2 Software Update (Free)
    • Adds new items to the Black Market:
      One additional ammo upgrade for each ammo type, at 50 Eridium each.
    • Two more backpack storage space upgrades, at 50 and 100 Eridium respectively.
    • Two more bank storage space upgrades, at 50 and 100 Eridium respectively.Increases the maximum amount of Eridium players can hold from 99 to 500.
    • Adds a new playthrough balanced for top-tier play: Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.
    • Various bug fixes.

    Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack
    (Free with Season Pass, $4.99 / 400 Microsoft Points separately)
    • Raises level cap to 61, allowing characters to gain 11 additional levels.
    • Characters gain a skill point with every level from 51 to 61, for a total of 11 more skill points.
    • Powerful new "Ancient" E-Tech relics and rare Pearlescent-grade weapons can be picked up in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.
    Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode Details:


    • Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode is unlocked for a character once they have completed the main story missions in True Vault Hunter Mode and reached level 50.
    • Unlike other playthroughs, Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode can be replayed multiple times with players able to reset their overall mission progress at any time from the Main Menu.
    • No more tutorial missions -- characters in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode begin in Southern Shelf with the "Cleaning Up the Berg" mission.
    • While playing in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode, enemies and bosses will scale according to the player's current level or, if playing with others, the highest-level player in that party.
    • Gameplay changes in UVHM:
      Enemy health generally increased 4x.
    • Enemies now have a moderate amount of health regeneration.
    • Increased duration of slag damage multiplier effect.
    • Upped the damage that slagged enemies take from 2x to 3x.
    • Weapon swap speed increased to better facilitate slag use.
    • Enemies now more likely to drop ammo.
    • Loot Midgets are now "Legendary Loot Midgets" that can drop Legendary and other top-tier gear.
