Borderlands 2: Mechromancer DLC release date confirmed

New character class available next month, is free with pre-orders

Gearbox has confirmed an October 16 release date for Borderlands 2's Mechromancer DLC.

The new Mechromancer character class will be available as a free download to those who pre-ordered the game. For everyone else it'll cost $9.99 / 800 MS Points (£6.85).


Gearbox previously announced plans to release four campaign add-on packs for the game. Retailing individually for $9.99, they'll each feature "several hours of gameplay and introduce new adventures, allies, enemies and environments".

A Borderlands 2 Season Pass enabling players to pre-purchase the four add-ons at a discount will be available when the shooter launches this month.

Publisher Take-Two has confirmed a Borderlands 2 release date of September 18 in the US, with the game set to launch internationally three days later.
