Gearbox to increase Borderlands 2 level cap by March

Borderlands 2

By on January 17, 2013 at 6:16 pm

One of the common complaints about Borderlands 2‘s current run of DLC is that it doesn’t increase the level cap. Now Gearbox are looking at this, and expect to be able to deploy something for you by the end of March.

“We do have one planned, and it will be for quite a few levels which will allow you play for quite a bit longer. We also have a plan for Q1,” said producer James Lopez to Official PlayStation Magazine.

Why haven’t they done it before now? It’s all to do with the way they’re tracking data, through the SHiFT system. “SHiFT allows us to see a lot more about the way players are playing the game and see what they’re doing. We wanted to give people enough time to get at least one level 50 and then see from there. We also didn’t want to wait so long that people were no longer interested or felt like it wasn’t coming.”

Yay people can stop complaining about it now! :)

 

hopeing this comes really quick !

 


“We wanted to give people enough time to get at least one level 50 and then see from there. We also didn’t want to wait so long that people were no longer interested or felt like it wasn’t coming.”

I had one character reach level 50 well before the first DLC was released and a 2nd character that I stopped short just to drag it out.

No leveling up just makes it feel like a grind.

 

I’m yet to get a single character to level 50. Currently a Lvl 47 Siren and Lvl 27 (I think) Mechromancer. Just because you powerleveled your character doesn’t mean everyone did.

I got to level 50 half way through the first DLC and didn’t play any after that (and won’t until they release the cap increase).

I agree with you Bickety – just feels like a grind.

You don’t have to be ‘power levelling’ to cap out in this game. Complete the main story twice and do all the side missions and you’re there.

I am only up to Level 20 on my main character as you can tell by the low level I havent really gotten into Borderlands 2 for a long period of time that often. I am not really focusing on Levels and am instead focusing on enjoying the game (which I am). I expect once I hit Level 50 I will do the DLC missions without any concern for levels or skills (except perhaps a respec).

 

Keen to try take on level 100 bosses with level 24 character!

 

My two cents,

Love the game – have two capped out characters. Didn’t think the cap would be an issue but I have found I’m not playing it as much now.

I reckon they should have raised the cap at least 10 when they released the Hammer lock DLC

I have 2 level 50′s, a siren and a mechromancer, i am pretty annoyed at how they have gone about this, releasing 3 of the 4 season pass dlc’s before a level cap raise…

My money is on you wont see level cap increase until after the season pass.
