Borderlands 2 DLC Next Week; GotY Edition Planned?

Digital Trends has a preview of the recently announced Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak DLC for Borderlands 2, Gearbox Software's RPG/FPS sequel, saying to expect the pack one week from today on September 3rd (thanks nin). On a related note, IGN says to expect a Borderlands 2 Game of the Year edition announcement soon, saying they learned this from "a GameStop source." Back to the preview, Digital Trends includes word that in addition to raising the game's level cap to 72, the new add-on will also allow players who have leveled up to set "Overpower" levels to fight enemies up to level 80. The article explains why they are going this route instead of simply raising the level cap directly to 80:

The entire world is affected when you load up a game set to a certain Overpower level; monsters are more deadly, and they drop more powerful loot. Your skill advancement still caps out at level 72, but the eight Overpower levels allow you to use this higher-level gear. Once you’ve unlocked all of the Overpower levels and jump into a max-level game, you’ll face monsters at level 80+ and find gear rated for level 80 that you can now use.

You’re probably wondering at this point why Gearbox is even bothering with the new Overpower leveling system when the new level 72 cap could just as easily have been a level 80 cap. “If you look at our skill tree, you’ll definitely notice that we’re running out of skill points,” Reiss says. “We’re trying to keep the diversity there. We do want players to level up and get more skills and have a lot of fun with that, but Digistruct Peak adds the icing on top of the cake, pretty much. More challenge, more adventure, more gear to collect.”

The only reason they are still flowing out DLC is because the people are speaking with their wallets. Perhaps they are going beyond original design, but it's all in response to what fans want.

It's basically the best coop one can get nowadays. If they pump out quality DLC like Tina's, I'll keep buying.
