Borderlands 2: Mechromancer, Captain Scarlett DLC on PSN Tuesday

Gaige

Hey guys, Jonathan from Gearbox here! I was walking around the office the other day and wouldn’t you know it — Sir Hammerlock came up to me and handed me a letter and asked if I could share it with you. Here’s what he had to say:

Dear Vault Hunters,

I’m well aware of your never-ending thirst for things to shoot and or loot, and I’m positively thrilled to announce some news nestled firmly in that avenue. Not one, but TWO pieces of downloadable content (or “DLC,” for the acronym-fond amongst you) for Borderlands 2 will soon be available for your procurement.

Have you ever dreamt about romancing a mech? If so, then you have been greatly misinformed about the new character class DLC. You shall receive the pleasure of playing as Gaige the Mechromancer (she’s a mechro-mancer, rather than a mech-romancer, you see – the importance of syllabic emphases can seldom be understated), a spectacularly brilliant prodigy of a girl who uses her robotic friend to slash, punch, and otherwise eviscerate the many fearsome foes of Pandora. She can also manipulate electricity by invoking the power of science. I also hear she’s a bit of an anarchist, but in a rather fun, mowing-down-bad-guys-while-humming-rock-music sort of way.

MechromancerSand Skiff

Last, but certainly not least, is “Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty,” the first campaign DLC for Borderlands 2. You can enjoy the splendor of skimming over the dried-out desert dunes of Pandora on a sand skiff, all the while shooting sand pirates with new guns and searching for treasure. As for Captain Scarlett, she’s the most pleasurably forthright backstabber I’ve ever met – an honest brigand, a truth-telling liar. Splendid woman.

So, there you have it – a brand-new Vault Hunter with which to wreak havoc, and an equally new campaign to wreak aforementioned havoc in. Look sharp, adventurers – there’s never been a better time to visit the Borderlands!

Tally-ho and all that,
Sir Hammerlock

An addendum (the nitty-gritty details):

If you pre-ordered Borderlands 2 at a participating retailer, you can play as Gaige for free as part of the Premiere Club. If not, you can acquire her for the paltry sum of $10. Included with Mechromancer, you also get cool Gearbox guns, Vault Hunter’s Relic and a golden key that unlocks a rare item in the mysterious Sanctuary Loot Chest.

if you’re a Borderlands 2 Season Pass holder then you’ve already acquired “Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty,” and simply need to download it the moment it comes out tomorrow. Otherwise it too can be obtained for $10.

There is a new loot rarity coming with the Pirate DLC. Anyone know it the new rarity only drops in the new DLC areas or can it drop in the rest of the game as well? In the first game the added “pearlescent” rarity only dropped in the General Knoxx areas.

I believe in the gearbox forums they mentioned that the DLC would behave like the first game. There is also a new collectable money, like eridium that is spent on buying guns and accessories in the DLC area.

@9 That’s cool. Either way it’s more Borderlands 2 so I’m fine with that.

@10 Couldn’t agree more. I can barely put it down to go to work! lol
