Gearbox unveiled some fresh Borderlands 2 content at PAX East over the weekend, including a raised level cap and a sixth playable character.
The Psycho Pack will be available in May for USD$9.99 or 800 Microsoft points and introduces Krieg, the new Psycho Bandit character class, further expanding the four-player cooperative shooter-looter experience.
Wielding a buzz axe and harnessing his psychotic multiple personalities, Krieg is a badass melee mauler with ranged attack capabilities that can rip foes to shreds with his deadly Buzz Axe Rampage action skill. Players can stack combat bonuses with Krieg’s Bloodlust skill tree, live on the edge of insanity with the Mania tree, or engulf both enemies and yourself in flames with the Hellborn tree.
Vault Hunters can also shoot and loot their way to new heights in Borderlands 2 when the level cap is raised to 61 on April 2 via the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack, included as part of the Season Pass. In addition to increasing the level cap from 50 to 61, the upcoming downloadable content pack will also unlock a third play through via the new Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.
Gearbox confirmed that a fourth DLC campaign is still set to arrive before the end of June.
