Borderlands 2 Mechromancer DLC bumped forward


Borderlands 2's, Gaige the Mechromancer DLC, has been bumped forward for an early release.

The DLC was originally due to be released on October 16, however it seems like it will now be released today.

"So - here's the surprise, Mechromancer for Borderlands 2 is ready about a week earlier than I promised. October 9, all platforms," Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford said via Twitter. "Should be available for download on all platforms by the end of the day."

The Mechromancer DLC is free if you pre-ordered Borderlands 2, although if you were late to the party then it'll cost $9.99/7.99 GBP/800 MS Points.

You can see the full skill tree for the Mechromancer here and read our review of Borderlands 2 here.

Good to see it out, just need to finish off my Gunzerker though before I start out with this character.

It's good that they done this nice to see stuff come out early rather than be delayed. Do hope they bring more characters out as they have set it up so its beneficial to have more than one.

I was gobsmacked at their descision to do this. In a business where delays rule, it's nice to see a company actually release something earlier. Kudos to them. I hope it catches on

Perhaps game devs will start announcing DLC a few months later than it's supposed to come out and then just saying "it's ready, here you go."

Ah good point. Still, it would feel nice to get it early. Kind of early anyway...

Aha yeah. It would certainly feel better if they overestimated and gave it to us "early" than underestimated and then delaying it.

I take ages to complete things so I'm going for it now.I have 1 Zero and 1 Zerker both only in their 10's and I've already started a Mechromancer. I have no attention span at all. Probably have a Siren on the go in the next hour too. Oh well, I'm having fun regardless

Still haven't got round to playing this game yet just sitting on the shelf taunting me. I blame LBP vita. it's nice to see the dlc coming out a week early though. good move from gearbox.
Shnoorum's avatar
I didn't open mine for a couple of days either. Was dedicated to completing the first games DLC beforehand. Dont think I've rushed through a video game as quick as I did for the last 3 DLC's. Totally worth it, number 2 is brilliant

Sorry for posting here again but I'm having too much fun with this character. Anyone else know what build they're going for? I'm going for an Anarchy build with reicochet and quick reload. Gonna try and get hold of a machine gun with an amazing fire rate too. The bullets will be flying. If its as good as it sounds this will be by far the most glorius Boderlands charcter I've ever made!
