Borderlands: Free Update
by Buddha

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford had more to talk about at PAX than just Duke Nukem Forever.  He brought up Borderlands while addressing the audience, and discussed a couple of features which players were hoping where going to be in the upcoming Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution DLC; namely a level cap increase and a rebalancing of the original game.

Pitchford stated that these would not be in the Claptrap DLC, but rather as part of a free update due October 12th.

According to Joystiq:

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford told a live PAX audience that his studio resisted making it a part of a DLC pack since, if they included those features, “you’d have to buy every previous DLC” to get access to said features. So, instead, Pitchford said they were going to release a “free update to Borderlands that will both rebalance the original game around the level cap and increase the level cap for everyone.”

But Pitchford said the studio still struggled with how high to raise it. On the one hand, Gearbox didn’t want to match the 11-point upgrade that many people paid for with the “General Knox” DLC, but on the other the devs didn’t want it to be too low, like 5-points. Instead, they came up with another number. “With the current level cap at 61,” Pitchford teased, “we realized if we added 8 levels ... “

The audience groans.

So the new level cap is 69 and it will be released sometime around the October 12th Borderlands Game of the Year Edition release.

I like this, and it’s going to be enough to get me back into the game in a serious way.  Till I read this, I’d only been poking in here and there.

No more.

It’s go time before Claptrap’s DLC comes out, and I intend to be a force to be reckoned with when it does.
