Last weekend at SXSW Gearbox showed a teaser trailer for a new character for Borderlands 2, one that might be the melee focused character fans have been waiting for since launch.
The trailer reads: “Deep beneath Pandora, an experiment has escaped, Bandits beware, a new vault hunter is coming. More mayhem awaits.”
Check out the video at the top to see the teaser trailer which shows bandits getting punched by a mysterious figure, this is heavily hinting that the next vault hunter will be melee focused. Because who doesn’t like punching dudes?
Joystiq managed to grab this quote from franchise directer Mark Armstrong “DLC is announced on a very tight schedule, and I don’t think you’ll have to wait long until you see that character.” However it was also announced that the character DLC will not be part of the Borderlands 2 Season Pass, meaning everybody will have to buy the pack separately, unless of course it is free of charge.
Hopefully we will be getting more details on the new character soon as it would be lovely to have another excuse to play some more Borderlands, especially if we have the chance to play with a new fighting style. Until then, unfortunately, we will just have to wait.
