Gearbox announced some show-stopping news at PAX10 this weekend with the announcement that they have taken over Duke Nukem Forever and will be releasing it next year, but the big news for us Borderlandsers is that DLC4 is out on Sept 28th and while there is no level cap raise in the DLC, there will be a free patch issued “around the late-October GOTY release” that “rebalances the game” and raises the cap to level 69. I have updated the skill calculator to allow up to level 69 builds, so go and plan yours now!
While there is some confusion on whether this is an 19-level increase for those who don’t have General Knoxx, what Borderlands fan doesn’t have arguably the best DLC? **EDIT*** Botman (gbx employee) confirmed that it is simply 8 levels. Cap is 58 without Knoxx. Another interesting statement I noticed from Randy Pitchford is that “the vast majority of our customers have not reached the level cap”. Come on people, max it out!
