Borderlands 2 comes with four character classes out of the box: “Gunzerker” Salvador, “Siren” Maya, “Commando” Axton, and “Assassin” Zer0. But on October 16, just under a month after release, it will add a fifth: Gaige the “Mechromancer.”
The additional class will be free to Borderlands 2 Premiere Club Members, which is given free of charge to consumers who order the game at participating retailers. Those who do not pre-order can purchase the content for $9.99 / 800 Microsoft Points.
Borderlands 2 launches for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on September 18.
