New Borderlands DLC Includes Level Cap Increase

Unveiling its third Borderlands DLC outing, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, Gearbox have intimated that this latest update will not only be the biggest DLC yet, it will also entail upping the game’s character level cap beyond 50.

The new content is targeted at the game’s old-guard. The announcement states:


This DLC extends the Borderlands experience, providing new challenges and opportunities for growth for characters from around level 34 to level 50. Growth for characters at 50? Yeah, that’s right, we’ve raised the level cap; even players who think they’ve seen it all have tons more to do! The Secret Armory of General Knoxx offers hours of thrilling shooting and looting for Borderlands players!”

Unfortunately there is no further word on what the new cap will be. The content itself comprises of a “new huge environment” along with new enemies and weapons.

The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is planned to hit later this year on PC, PS3 and 360.
