2K Games and Gearbox Software recently announced that its upcoming Borderlands 2 DLC featuring a fifth playable class is out earlier than expected.
The Mechromancer DLC will be available for download right now on October 9 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC versions of the game. Further clarification was provided by Gearbox Studio president Randy Pitchford on Twitter. Gamers who did not pre-order the game will have to fork out $9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points for it.
The DLC will allow players to use Gaige the Mechromancer who has the ability to summon a giant robot called Deathtrap to assist her. Her upgrade paths are focused on afflicting status effects, powering up her Anarchy skill, and giving support and buffs to less-skilled players around her. Players can check out the character's skill tree on the game's official site.
