OPM: James Lopez, associate producer on Borderlands 2, has confirmed a level cap raise is on the way, sometime in “Q1″, so by the end of March.
They should also add many more uses for eridium, but I'll be patient. This is great so far.
By March - translation - the last Tuesday in March, if we feel like it. I somewhat already moved on from Borderlands 2; I'll play it again but not right now.
It's a bit late, really. Had the level cap been increased for the current or one of the previous DLC's I would have had more of an incentive to reach it. Raising it with the final DLC... I don't know if I'll be too eager to slave away for hours trying to reach the cap at that point.
I totally agree. While I love BL2, the wait for the cap increase has become ridiculous. I have 3 lvl 50 characters and just started a 4th. Bioshock Infinite, Gears Judgement amongst other great games are coming around that time...Gearbox is slowly dropping the ball with this IMO.
The level cap wouldn't have been such a problem if they had balanced the experience earned in Playthrough 2 a bit better. I was skipping side quests and still hit the cap well before reaching the end again. The leveling progression should have slowed down in the higher levels. Now after 2 DLCs and really only getting story enjoyment out of it, I'm rather bored with it. I'd guess we'll probably get the next DLC before the cap increases.
my guess is 1 more dlc before the level cap rise appears at the same time as a new season pass,which i wont be buying as none of these dlc's have been anywhere near as good or as full of content as knoxx as they promised they all would be before i bought the pass eg voracidious can be dead an hour after starting the new dlc
