Krieg is a high-risk melee brawler who sports a buzz axe, and features multiple psychotic personalities. The character's three skill trees--Bloodlust, Mania, and Hellborn--allow Krieg to get stronger as he fights with his axe, stronger as he takes damage, and stronger as he's set on fire, respectively.

The character will be released as part of the $9.99 Psycho Pack downloadable content. The game's fifth character, Gaige, was released in October 2012 for the same price.

Neither additional characters are included in Borderlands 2's $30 season pass.

Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, the last chunk of Borderlands 2 DLC to be included in the season pass, will be released on June 25. The new questline follows previous packs Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt, Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage, and Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty.
