Revealed back at PAX East, Gaige is the fifth playable character in Borderlands 2. She was announced as a DLC which will be available to player shortly after the launch of the game.
A tweet by Gearbox Software just now reveals that she will arrive on October 16 and will be free for premium members. Those without a premium clearance will off course have to pay small fee of $10 to obtain the fifth class.
Gaige holds the power to command Deathtrap, a mech that does immense damage with melee and also holds an explosive clap ability which damages in an area.
Another of her revealed skills was Close Enough, which makes bullets bounce off walls and objects. This will enable you to still hit enemies who are hiding behind cover.
Borderlands 2 will release later this month and is already getting favorable reviews by websites who got an advanced copy.
