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.

I hope this is the DLC that makes me pick this back up. I completely OD'd on this game for the first month then didn't even want to look at it. I just hope they don't make the Pearls stupid rare this time. Rare is ok, but they don't need to be as rare as the Crawmerax drops were. I think I found 1 and I killed him a lot on both PC and PS3.

Makes you want to sing Madonna's Borderline with me, doesn't it, nin?

The class feature sounds pretty cool...good on the level cap, too.
