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.
