Sir Hammerlock Introduces Borderlands 2 Players To Krieg

Borderlands 2 players, your new friend is finally here to "meat" you. Krieg, the sixth vault hunter, is available today on all platforms (PC, Mac, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3).

In the trailer below, you'll get a look at Krieg's action skill, Buzz Saw Rampage, and his three diverse skill trees. I had a chance to take Krieg for a spin, and he plays much differently than any of the other characters. For those who had been considering a return trip to Pandora, the $10 DLC might be enough to lure you back in.

As a reminder, Krieg is not part of the Season Pass, which includes the four narrative expansions. The last of these, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, will be released on June 25th. Astute viewers of the new trailer below might see a few glimpses of the upcoming pen-and-paper RPG-inspired adventure.
