Borderlands level cap shoots up

New PC update fixes bugs too.

The level cap for the PC version of Borderlands has been topped up with a new update going live today, developer Gearbox has announced.

Borderlands players will now be able to climb up to level 58 or, if you've got The Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC, level 69.

The update also brings with it a fix for DLC4 Achievement/Trophy glitches that have affected some users.

Gearbox hasn't confirmed when the new level cap will be available for PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 users.
