Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software, today commented on the fact that the developer is charging for the upcoming level-cap increase releasing for “Borderlands 2” next week. The DLC which will increase the game’s current level-cap from 50 to 61 will cost $4.99 on the Playstation Network and 400 Microsoft Points via Xbox Live. Pitchford reassures fans that the $5 price for this DLC isn’t arbitrary and is a result of thousands of hours the team took developing the level-cap increase alongside a third playthrough of the game. Randy Pitchford’s full statement which he made on Monday, March 25 is as follows.

It's just $5 for 1000's of hours of work in design, engineering and balancing. If it is not worth it to you, it is elective.

Since work on a level-cap increase for “Borderlands 2” was first announced, Randy Pitchford asked gamers to be patient because the feat would take development and balancing. So this news keeps in line with what the developer has prepared players for all along. It’s also worth mentioning that the level-cap increasing DLC will be free to Season Pass holders. This is a complete bonus as this was never listed as any part of the Season Pass description when it was originally revealed.

Borderlands 2” is out now on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC/Mac.
