For those vault hunters in the audience who just couldn't wait another week to get their hands on Gaige the Mecromancer, you are in luck. Randy Pitchford announced through Twitter this morning that the new character for Borderlands 2 was ready earlier than expected, and will be made available today through the game's various platforms.
Just yesterday we showed off Gaige's Echo Log 2, a recording that gives some details about her flying, laser-shooting robot that beats up on bullies. At the time, the feisty engineer was not expected to be available until Oct. 16. That all changed this morning, however, when Gearbox head Randy Pitchford took to Twitter.
“So-here's the surprise, Mechromancer for Borderlands 2 is ready about a week earlier than I promised. Oct. 9, all platforms. Woo!” read his first Tweet, followed shortly by, “Should be available for download on all platforms by the end of the day.”
I'd say that's some pretty solid confirmation that Gaige will be a playable character in Borderlands 2 sometime very soon. If you pre-ordered the game and input your Premiere Club code, this brand new character will be free of charge. Otherwise, you can expect to plop down $9.99 (800 MS points) in order to get your hands on this latest vault hunter.
