Borderlands 2: A New Character Hinted For Release

Gearbox Studio’s head honcho Randy Pitchford has teased a new character inbound for Borderlands 2 in the coming days. If so then this would the sixth character in the game, following the last release of mechromancer, which was initially a pre-order bonus.

The news comes through Pitchford’s Twitter account where someone asked him whether a new class would be coming. He replied, “Almost certainly yes. We’re working on it.”

Previously Gearbox announced that Borderlands 2 would be getting an increase in its level cap, which would ultimately allow players to adventure more. The update is still somewhere on the horizon and when asked about its release, Pitchford said, “Sorry I can’t offer more yet – I get skewered when things change in development, whatever the reason.”
