Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel DLC Makes Handsome Jack a Playable Character

Well, not Handsome Jack proper, but his clone.

The first piece of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, the Handsome Jack Doppelganger Pack, will add Handsome Jack, the villain from Borderlands 2, as a playable character, Gearbox and 2K Australia have announced.

Technically, you're not playing as Handsome Jack himself, but his body double. As "Jack," you'll be able to summon multiple "Digi-Jacks" that will fight for you, and they can get special abilities depending on how you upgrade you skill tree. "Jack" can also shoot enemies with wrist lasers, get buffs every time he picks up money, and get special upgrades for using guns made by specific manufacturers.

Gearbox and 2K Australia say they've been working on DLC for the game since they completed the main game. The other three pieces of DLC included in the Season Pass are still in development, but the plan is to add another playable character, raise the level cap, and add a new campaign.

You can buy the DLC packs separately at $10 a piece, or get the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Season Pass, which will get you all the DLC as it's released for $30 total.

The Handsome Jack Doppelganger Pack is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on November 11.
