Borderlands update to add free level cap increase

Borderlands is getting a free title update across PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC soon. The update, currently in the approval process, adds a couple of free goodies sure to get players back into the game. Level cap increase sound good to you?

Here’s everything you’ll get when the v1.41 update releases:

  • Level cap increase of 8 levels
    • That means that all Borderlands players will now be able to achieve a new maximum level of 58.
  • Owners of The Secret Armory of General Knoxx can achieve an increase to a maximum level of 69.
  • End game players that have completed play-through #2 will see enemies scale to the new levels up to the new level cap.
    • That means that if you’ve completed everything, you can play through the game again and again at a challenging level in order to find better and better loot.
  • Item drops (with the exception of COM Decks) will also scale with higher level enemies to the new level cap.
    • That means that this Title Update features the highest level weapons to date.
  • Other fixes, including DLC4 Achievement/Trophy glitches that have affected some users will be corrected to properly award players for obtaining these achievements no matter which order they were completed in.

No date is set yet, but it should be available in November, 2K Games has said. Stay tuned.
