The lights are on
Hot off its reveal of a sixth playable character for Borderlands 2 during its PAX East panel, Gearbox has released a teaser trailer for Krieg the Psycho. The new character will be available in May, and focuses on melee combat.
Krieg is available in the Psycho Pack, which will cost $10 and isn't included by the Borderlands 2 Season Pass. Like Borderlands 2's previous Mecromancer DLC, Krieg will feature a brand new skill tree comprised of three distinct branches for upgrading the character based on your play preference.
As we mentioned earlier, Gearbox also announced two more DLC packs during its panel. The first will increase Borderlands 2's level cap to 61 and reintroduce players to Pearlescent items (an ultra rare weapon type in the original Borderlands), which start appearing at level 51. The pack will be free to Season Pass owners, and cost $5.00 for everyone else. It will be available on April 2.
The final piece of DLC Gearbox revealed is called the Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode, and is designed to give players a reason to take on a third playthrough of the game. Ultimate Vault Hunter mode will also be available on April 2, and is free for everyone.
Here's the new trailer for Krieg:
