Recently, the president of Gearbox Software Randy Pitchford has confirmed that Borderlands 2 will indeed see more classes be added to it’s already versatile roster in the near future via DLC.
When asked on Twitter if Borderlands 2 would ever see any more character classes added in future DLC, Pitchfort responded, “yes – we’re working on it.”
This wonderful news stems from the recent success of Borderlands 2′s fifth playable class, the Mechromancer, which you can catch my review of right here. This confirmation also comes as a fulfillment of Pitchford’s earlier promise: If Gaige the Mechromancer performs and sells well with the Borderlands 2 community, Gearbox would love to add more character classes in the near future. Thankfully for everyone, she did.
Unfortunately for you vault hunters who have purchased the Borderlands 2 season pass, these character classes will not be included within, just like Gaige the Mechromancer. The season pass is set to only cover the campaign expansions, one of which we’ve already received - Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty. We’ve also recently discovered the next campaign expansion for Borderlands 2 will be called ‘Mr Torgue’s Campaign Of Carnage,’ which seems to center around the Torgue weapon manufacture that specializes in explosive weaponry.
With what seems to be an ever growing cast of character classes, what type of character class would you like to see be added to Borderlands 2? Use the comment section below to leave us your thoughts!
