Borderlands 2 Mechromancer DLC to be released today

It has been quite some time since Gearbox’s role playing shooter game Borderlands 2 was launched. Those who had pre-ordered the game also got downloadable content (DLC) for the game in the form of the Mechromancer character class. Today, the Mechromancer DLC will be available for purchase for those of us who didn’t pre-order Borderlands 2. The DLC will be released for the PC version of the game, as well as the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 versions. The DLC is set to cost roughly Rs 550, or 800 Microsoft Points.

Like every other class in the game, Gaige the Mechromancer also has a special ability called Deathtrap, which is a robot she can summon to presumably go on a murderous rampage against her enemies. Her three skill trees are Best Friends Forever, Little Big Trouble and Ordered Chaos. Gearbox has made her skill tree available on the skill calculator so you can get a closer look at her skills.

Borderlands 2 was released on 18 September with a launch trailer. The trailer showed the motivations of the main antagonist of the game – Handsome Jack.

Gearbox’s role playing shooter might get a release on the PlayStation Vita. In an interview with IGN, head of Gearbox Randy Pitchford said, “If some other studio was capable and could be trusted by us, and by a publishing partner, and by Sony, and someone wanted to invest in making that happen? I think Sony should step up and make that happen”. Pitchford will be meeting with Sony on the matter soon. This could possibly mean a PlayStation Vita version for Borderlands 2. And if we’re making wishes, we could also wish for cross-platform co-op between the PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation 3.

In early September, Gearbox released a trailer for Borderlands 2 that introduces you to the changes between the first and second games, along with helpful hints help you in becoming more badass. The trailer is narrated by Sir Hammerlock, who gives an introductory tour of Borderlands 2 as only he can. The trailer shows many details about the game, such as the name of the Big Bad of the game, Handsome Jack. The trailer also points out how much of a badass you are. It shows how you can become more badass by levelling up your character, getting new and interesting weapons out of the 87 bazillion the game has, and how you can attain new levels of badassery by getting things such as relics and class mods, which change how certain skills of your character work.

Borderlands 2 is available in retail stores for Rs 999 for the PC version, and Rs 2,499 for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 versions. The PC version of the game is also available on Steam for $59.99 (roughly Rs 3,100).
