Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Ultimate Vault Hunter Details

Gearbox Software announces additional details about the recently announced Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They say they expect the Windows patch to show up on Steam on December 16th, and offer the following outline of Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode:

After you’ve downloaded the update, Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode will be unlocked for any character once they have completed the main story missions in True Vault Hunter Mode and reached level 50. In UVHM, players can reset their mission progress at any time from the main menu in order to replay multiple times.

Additionally, enemies and bosses will scale according to your current level. If you’re playing with others, enemies scale to the highest-level player in the party. Here are the changes you can expect in UVHM:

  • Regular enemies will receive a 1.5x health multiplier and 1.5x shield multiplier
  • Badass enemies will receive a 2.5x health multiplier and 3.5x shield multiplier
  • Enemies are now more likely to drop ammo, plus enemies and chests will give you better gear than in other playthroughs
  • Elemental weapons will also be more effective, as will gear with elemental resistance
