New York, NY – September 3, 2013 – 2K and Gearbox Software today announced the release of new Borderlands® 2 downloadable content on all platforms worldwide*. One new head and skin set for each playable character, as well as Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge, offer a fistful of reasons for fans to continue the shooting and looting mayhem on Pandora.

“After the close of the Season Pass, we promised fans they could expect more great content for Borderlands 2,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “Gearbox has been hard at work to provide additional top-shelf offerings for the title, and both our casual and hardcore fans alike will appreciate what’s laid on the table with this wave of exciting new downloadable content.”

The Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge offers 11 levels of powerful character growth, more legendary gear, and the new “Raid on Digistruct Peak” map, giving players a high-level challenge for only $4.99. When combined with the first Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack – also available separately for $4.99, or as part of the Season Pass for $29.99 – players can now take their Vault Hunters to an all-time high level of 72 and collect even more rare and valuable loot. Level 72 players will also unlock the opportunity to over-level the game as they quest for even more powerful enemies and loot in Pandora. For fans who want some vanity with a dose of insanity, one new head and skin set will be available for each Vault Hunter for $0.99 each, making all six of the playable Borderlands 2 characters more customizable than ever before.

“Fan support for the first Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack and the many individual character customization sets continues to be an important part of the overall success of Borderlands 2,” said Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K. “With the game’s one-year anniversary on the horizon, 2K and Gearbox remain dedicated to supporting the Borderlands franchise, and will continue offering fans more of the DLC they want this holiday season and beyond.”
