As previously hinted by Borderlands 2 creators Gearbox Software, fans are treated to a “big surprise” this fine Tuesday morning.
According to IGN, the downloadable character Gaige the Mechromancer and her pet companion Death-Trap are available as of today, one week before its original release date of October 16.
Not only will players have the ability to unleash the Mechormancer’s deadly Death-Trap upon the creatures of Pandora, but three new skill trees will also available to spec this new class in a number of different ways.
Those who pre-ordered Borderlands 2 or are members of the Premier Club can download this quirky new character at no cost while others will need to drop a total of $9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points to gain access. Expect this new content to be available later today in North America and other regions.
