Default Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode, Level Cap Raise (Out Now)

Gearbox is going to release a new playthrough on April 2. Its called Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode and its for free, it will come with an update to the black market, thus increasing storage capacity. Also being released on April 2 is a level cap raise pack, which includes pearlescent weapons(free for season pass holders, $5.00 for everyone else)

For the Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode, you to have to be level 50 to start it and must have beaten TVHM. Its an entirely new play through(3rd playthrough), which means the difficulty will be scaled much higher.
It will be released on April 2 for free.

Wanted to post a thread on this, but since you're editing this one, I'll just drop my info here for you to add.

IGN article: http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/03/..._medium=social

Reddit Summary: http://www.reddit.com/r/Games/commen...w_updates_for/

Looks like we get Pearls, re-balancing, a new Psycho based character, and most or all of it comes with the Season Pass.

I'm totally psyched for this.

They make it sound like all 51-61 weapons are going to be pearls, although I may have just misheard them. It could also just be that the pearl tier only drops in the 51-61 range, which makes more sense to me.

I don't know where you got "May" and "$10" for Krieg, but I've been watching the stream. There's been no announcement of either price or a date. It probably is $10, but date is anyone's guess.

ah. just announced as $10
