Borderlands 2 New Content & Level Cap Details

The Borderlands 2 panel at PAX East has unveiled the promised details on the new vault hunter and level cap planned for the role-playing shooter sequel. Polygon has word that the new vault hunter is Krieg the Psycho, saying this sixth playable character will be released via DLC in May (apparently not part of season passes), describing a berserker-style character derived from the Psycho enemy character. They have a trailer, but this seems to be marked private (there's a horrible cammed version on Kotaku), and the following description: "Krieg's actions come at high risk and offer high rewards, with his main action tasking him with rushing foes to kill enemies, which heals him — a necessary task, since, unlike Borderlands' melee character Brick, his health does not regenerate on its own." They also have word this will be preceded by the release of the Ultimate Vault Hunter's Pack on April 2 (which will be included with season passes), which will add new gear, and raise the level cap to 61. This will be released alongside a free patch for the game adding an "Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode," which will give players "the opportunity to take their maxed out heroes through the game a third time." Also, Kotaku (thanks nin) has word on a new limited edition Loot Chest version of the game that will seek for a hundred bucks on Think Geek in May for people who love the game that much, but don't own it already.

Call to Arms Trailer

Digitalmindsoft now offers a new trailer from Call to Arms, their upcoming spiritual successor to the Men at War series of military RTS games. The clip includes several minutes of alpha footage showing off combat, armor and other units, and environments, but they warn: "Most objects are placeholders and do not represent the final quality of the game. Progress of the game can be seen by watching previous videos."

Broken Age is Double Fine's Adventure

GamesRadar has word from PAX East that Double Fine has revealed Broken Age as the title for their recently Kickstarted adventure game. A new Broken Age website is live with the following description:

Broken Age is a point-and-click adventure telling the stories of a young boy and girl leading parallel lives. The girl has been chosen by her village to be sacrificed to a terrible monster--but she decides to fight back. Meanwhile, a boy on a spaceship is living a solitary life under the care of a motherly computer, but he wants to break free to lead adventures and do good in the world. Adventures ensue.
