Borderlands 2 publisher 2K Games has announced that the game’s Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack is available now on your digital marketplace of choice.

The 2K Twitter feed posted the above image this afternoon.

Gearbox is selling the pack for 400 Microsoft Points or around £3.50 on PSN and PC respectively. It’s free to season pass holders. There’s also a free patch live from today as well.

Here’s a full change-log of what the latest patch and update pack adds:

  • Adds new items to the Black Market:
  • One additional ammo upgrade for each ammo type, at 50 Eridium each.
  • Two more backpack storage space upgrades, at 50 and 100 Eridium respectively.
  • Two more bank storage space upgrades, at 50 and 100 Eridium respectively.
  • Increases the maximum amount of Eridium players can hold from 99 to 500.
  • Adds a new playthrough balanced for top-tier play: Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.
  • Various bug fixes.

Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack (Free with Season Pass, $4.99 / 400 Microsoft Points separately)

  • Raises level cap to 61, allowing characters to gain 11 additional levels.
  • Characters gain a skill point with every level from 51 to 61, for a total of 11 more skill points.
  • Powerful new “Ancient” E-Tech relics and rare Pearlscent-grade weapons can be picked up in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.

So, you have to pay for a level cap raise. What do you make of that folks?

    I want this, but I’m just going to wait for the Game of the Year edition sometime next year.

    By the way, the Evil Smasher gltch has been patched out, so anyone trying to solo Terramorphous, be warned.

    @1 Thanks for the heads up, I was waiting for this to drop before I started f-ing around soloing the raids. Damn shame they patched that out.

    On topic, this cheap season pass has been excellent value so I’m please about these drops. Would I be happy to pay if I had to? Nope, not one bit but as it stands, I don’t care, I’m happy that I can level some more!

    When they raised the level cap of the first game we got a whole new story-length DLC along with it, The Armory of General Knoxx as well as everything else in this ‘DLC’

    I don’t know how this can count as part of the season pass, theres no content at all, just a new playthrough, which modders already have done a better job at. I was really hoping for new content to play today, guess not.
