The next DLC update for Borderlands 2 has been given a release date.
Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt will be out Jan. 15 (Jan. 16 for European PS3 owners) for PC, PS3 and 360. The content will have players trying to take on a new enemy that wants to bring back what Handsome Jack was trying to accomplish.
Meanwhile, Polygon is reporting that a level cap increase for the game is coming early next year. With it should be a third play through as well.
“We are planning to do a level cap increase,” James Lopez, a Gearbox Software producer on Borderlands 2, said. “We should have some more information on that probably in the next quarter… but it will be considerable and should allow for a third play through.”
The team still isn’t sure if it will be part of the DLC or a separate update.
