Mechromancer class announced for Borderlands 2

It's post-launch DLC, but pre-orders get it free.

Borderlands 2 gets an additional Mechromancer character class as post-launch DLC, developer Gearbox has announced.

As reported by Game Informer, the studio announced the addition at PAX East in Boston this weekend. The new character is part female, part machine and controls a large robot companion known as D374-TP (Deathtrap).

Those who pre-order the game will get it for free when it's ready. A price wasn't confirmed for everyone else, although studio boss Randy Pitchford promised that it will be "comparable to most DLC."

A few other new scraps of Borderlands 2 info came out of Gearbox's PAX panel too. There's a refined character customisation system that sees you earning new costume items as you complete missions.

Pitchford also showed off a high-end $149.99 special edition of the game. It comes packaged in a special lootbox and includes a Marcus bobblehead.
