Just found this on the Gearbox Software Forums. Thought I might as well bring it over here for discussion.

Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode Details

- Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode is unlocked for a character once they have completed the main story missions in True Vault Hunter Mode and reached level 50.

- Unlike other playthroughs, Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode can be replayed multiple times with players able to reset their overall mission progress at any time from the Main Menu.

- No more tutorial missions -- characters in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode begin in Southern Shelf with the "Cleaning Up the Berg" mission.

- While playing in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode, enemies and bosses will scale according to the player's current level or, if playing with others, the highest-level player in that party.

Gameplay changes in UVHM:

- Enemy health generally increased 4x.

- Enemies now have a moderate amount of health regeneration.

- Increased duration of slag damage multiplier effect.

- Upped the damage that slagged enemies take from 2x to 3x.

- Weapon swap speed increased to better facilitate slag use.

- Enemies now more likely to drop ammo.

- Loot Midgets are now "Legendary Loot Midgets" that can drop Legendary and other top-tier gear.

Sorry if this has already been posted, just thought I'd try and share this. :)

They are also looking into Doc Mercy's drop rates in playthrough 2.5. Might be sorted in a future update/hot fix.

By 'overall mission progress' it means wiping the entire playthrough, though I believe you keep whatever weapons etc you find.

That's all I know so far, I'll post more updates as I find them, etc. Feel free to contribute yourselves if you find anything :)
