Second DLC pack for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel out this month
The Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack will be released December 16
Gearbox Software has announced that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel’s second batch of add-on content, The Holodome Onslaught, is coming on December 16th.
This add-on pack features new narrative content including appearances from veteran Vault Hunters Gaige and Axton, who recently returned to the Crimson Raiders HQ. While they were gone on a mission, they missed out on the events of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and ask Athena to recount the story. Since they’re not the most patient, they just want an abbreviated version – only the juicy, violent stuff.
As Athena tells the tale, you’ll play through The Holodome Onslaught, a new challenge arena where you’ll fight wave after wave of foes, as well as several new enemies. You’ll also be able to earn new weapons, new class mods, and some radical new heads and skins.
As bonus content, this add-on pack also includes the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack, which raises the level cap to 60, giving each of your characters 10 new levels, plus 10 new skill points to earn.
The pack will be sold on its own for $9.99, or for free to the Season Pass holders.
Additionally, all Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel players will receive a free patch next week that adds a third playthrough, Ultimate Vault Hunter mode, which is more difficult and adds the ability to reset campaign progress at any time, as well as enemies scaling up to your current level.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel launched in October for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
