Borderlands 2 gets new downloadable character

Think you've milked Borderlands 2 dry? Think again. During a presentation at the SXSW festival in Texas, Gearbox unveiled a teaser trailer for a new downloadable vault hunter character.

"Deep beneath Pandora, an experiment has escaped," says the teaser. "Bandits beware, a new vault hunter is coming. More mayhem awaits." Shown only in silhouette, the character appears to use melee attacks and looks to be a mixture of Hulk and Robocop. Pretty tempting, eh?

No release date was given, but Borderlands franchise director Matt Armstrong explained to the crowd that we'll be playing with this new addition sooner rather than later. "DLC is announced on a very tight schedule," he said, "and I don't think you'll have to wait long until you see that character."

This will be the second additional character for the game. Shortly after Borderlands 2 was released, the Mechromancer Pack added a crazy robot-unleashing little girl called Gaige to the line-up. There have also been three hefty expansion packs released so far. Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage and Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt are all available, each offering large new maps and loads more hilarious storyline to an already obscenely generous game. If you haven't given it a try, now's the time.

Borderlands 2 is out now for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
