Borderlands players might be disappointed to learn that next month's new downloadable content will not include a level cap increase. Perhaps two screens from Claptrap's New Robot Revolution will help ease the pain?
We noticed many of our readers pondering the possibilities of an increase to the current level 61 cap when we posted about Claptrap's New Robot Revolution earlier this morning, so we dropped Gearbox Software president and CEO Randy Pitchford a line to see if there was any good news.
"No level cap increase with this one as the vast majority of our customers still need to reach the cap," Pitchford told Kotaku. "The most hardcore that are already there will find tons of new content. Players that haven't capped will find lots of paths to reach the cap with this DLC."
So no level cap increase, but plenty of new content for those who've already hit the cap, including ten additional skill tree points!
Still disappointed? You could probably use another screenshot. Here you go, little buckaroo.
Edit: Added mention of the new skill points, after realizing they weren't mentioned in the first article.
Update: Pitchford adds, "This DLC follows the story of the interplanetary ninja assassin from the end of the original game. Raising the level cap again would've required us to require purchase of DLC 3, which seemed like something that isn't cool for customers that want to pick and choose."
